Perez Hilton: The scarabous finger writes, and having writ, rushes to press delete

The Zelda Lily: Feminism In A Bra blog has got an interesting post showing how far Perez Hilton lacks the courage of his convictions:

The Michael coverage as of yesterday stated that the popular notion around the back-biting, venomous website was that Jackson had staged his heart attack and subsequent death as a off-putting ploy to avoid his up and coming tour this Fall beginning in London. Lavandeira’s original and oh-so-eloquently-worded post stated:

We knew something like this would happen!!

Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!!

Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!

His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!

We are dubious!!

Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in ‘95 when he “collapsed” at rehearsal!

He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!!

Either he’s lying or making himself sick, but we’re curious to see if he’s able to go on!!!

Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!

Having called it so wrongly, so quickly, you might have managed to salvage a bit of respect for Hilton had he kept the original post up and subsequently gone "well, I was wrong..."

Instead, he set about cutting down his post to this:
Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!!

The singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!

His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!

If you're going to trade on your 'saying the unsayable' schtick, you should surely at least leave the unsayable said when you've said it, right?

At the risk of going all Lynne Truss, you have to be dubious about a grown man who has to use so many exclamation marks when writing.
