ET Onlinecaught Josh Duhamel on the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen red carpet and asked him about the incident between celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.Am. Josh's response:
"When you get rich saying hateful things sometimes you ask for it," Duhamel says."It's an unfortunate incident and I hope it goes away."
The incident in question centers around Perez Hilton accusing Will.i.Am of punching him in the face at a MuchMusic Video Awards after party. Hilton even released an image of himself with the injury beneath his eye. Will.i.Am has responded (see clip after the jump) with a video blog explaining he was trying to defend his band mate Fergie–Josh's wife–after she spoke with Hilton about his less than favorable coverage. Will.i.Am claims a fan punched Hilton, not a member of his entourage. TMZ has a video clip of the incident on its website.
