After Perez Hilton spoke out so vehemently against cyberbullying following the recent series of bully-related suicides, it was pointed out by, oh, a few bazillion people that the man is a big ol’ hypocrite, as he has basically built his entire career and fortune by trashing people on the internet in pretty ugly ways. Â Hilton now says that he’s trying to clean up his act and walk the talk, and while he’s at it he’s branching out and making a few other niche websites to help categorize content and respond to criticism that his flagship site has no real focus. Â It remains to be seen whether this change will benefit him professionally, as a lot of people only go to his site because they want to see the trash talk. Â If he gives that up, he’ll kind of be abandoning his only real skill.
