Perez Hilton visited The Joy Behar Show on Thursday in a further attempt to clear his name, reports MTV News.
The internet blew up after Perez tweeted a link to an image of Miley exiting a car while appearing to not have any underwear on. The gossip blogger was flooded with accusations of posting child pornography, prompting him to remove the link.
Perez on seems to think that the whole situation is an exaggeration, saying Miley definitely was wearing underwear and blaming the response he received on America’s “very dirty imagination.”
“I feel like if everyone saw this image in question, they would clearly see that you’re not seeing anything down there that you’re not supposed to,” says Hilton. “It’s definitely not child pornography, and it’s definitely not illegal.”
Perez says that he only posted a link to the image because he wanted to show everyone Miley’s “shocking behaviour of late,” and saying, “The point of me choosing that one photo is because it was showing Miley getting out of the car in an unladylike fashion.”
Even though Perez says that posting the photo was “not actually doing anything worse than Miley herself has been doing recently,” he took the link down.
