Perez has responded to GLAAD's statement that asked him to apologize for using the work F**got.
"I am saddened GLAAD chose to victimize me further by criticizing me for how
I non-violently dealt with a very scary situation that, unfortunately, turned
violent. While I doubt I will get an apology from GLAAD, nor do I expect one, I
would just hope people know how difficult it is to intellectualize a situation
and think rationally when a thug disguised as a musician is screaming at your
face and intimidating you. I am just very fortunate and grateful that nothing
more serious happened to me."
