Perez Hilton says Kylie should have an abortion... and the reaction is heated
The professional gossip made the shocking statement in a video.
Just hours after the news of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy broke, Perez Hilton was giving his reaction online.
Sharing his thoughts in a six-minute video on YouTube, Perez made some comments that have left viewers furious.
“In case you haven’t been paying attention, Kylie has been dating rapper Travis Scott for, um, five months, six months,” he said in his video before incorrectly sharing 20-year-old Kylie’s age.
“Also a reminder – Kylie Jenner is 19 years old.”
Using those two statements as the apparent evidence her needed, the dad-of-two then went on to make a shocking statement, saying:
“I love life, I love babies – if I was Kris Jenner, I would tell that girl to get an abortion!”
The gossip columnist went on to share his reasons for suggesting that Kylie have an abortion, mainly suggesting that her relationship with the supposed father would not last.
“Let’s be really real here, people. Kylie and Travis are not gonna last, they’re not gonna end up happily ever after, they’re having a baby and they barely know each other.”
Perez also went on to criticise the reality star and question her ability to be a good parent.
“It’s just sad because based on everything I know, I personally don’t think that at 19 and given who she is and where she is in her life, she’s going to be a good mom.”
He also went on to claim it was a PR stunt in an effort to overshadow her brother Rob and his ex-fiancée, Blac Chyna after they welcomed their daughter Dream in 2016.
Perez’ views caused outrage online, with many demanding he apologises to Kylie for the comments.

Sorry but telling someone to abort their baby is just wrong. But you have a nice day.

Pro choice is xactly that, it is HER choice and she’s choosing to keep the baby. No one can tell or suggest what she should do.
