TOOL ALERT: #PerezHilton Under Fire For Saying That #KylieJenner Should ‘Have An Abortion’ ⠀
“I love life, I love babies, [but] if I were Kris Jenner, I would tell that girl to get an abortion.” Perez Hilton, 39, said in a reaction video posted on Sept. 22, hours after the news broke that Kylie Jenner, 20, was reportedly four-months pregnant. Though Perez got Kylie’s age wrong – as he called her 19, though she just turned 20 on Aug. 10 – there was a reason behind him saying that Kylie should terminate her pregnancy. “Let’s be really real here, people. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are not going to last. They’re not going to end up happily ever after. They’ve having a baby and they barely know each other.”⠀
“This is when being pro-choice really comes in handy,” Perez said, just utterly flabbergasted that Kylie Jenner would be pregnant at her age. “You know [Keeping Up with the Kardashians] is about to end and you know Kylie just wants to get a role on Teen Mom,” he quipped. “I don’t really want to project on Kylie Jenner, but based on everything that I know, I personally don’t think at , and given who she is and where she is in her life, [that] she’s going to be a great mom,” he added. “My heart goes out for that poor unborn child, but from a business point of view, this is great for business.”⠀
If Kylie Jenner is four months pregnant, she could undergo a second-trimester abortion procedure, according to Planned Parenthood (especially since she lives in California and not in one of the states that have been trying to restrict woman’s reproductive rights.) However, some fans tore into Perez for just outright saying that Kylie should have terminated her pregnancy, tearing into him for being so flippant with his “outrageous” response video.
“We give a lot of others significance in our lives even when they don't deserve it. It doesn't matter if they're family or if you've known them forever. If they're not good for you, they've got to go.” - @gabunion
