TMZ's Harvey Levin Loves Himself A Hooker

You may have heard of Harvey Levin, the bene/malevolent deity to whom Paris Hilton appealed while in prison. He started the gossip website TMZ, which likes to coin new terms such as "celebuspawn", or the other day, in reference to a Matrix-y dress worn by Beyonce, "roboho." To which Rev. Al Sharpton got all: "WAIT A MINUTE HE SAID 'HO'!" So what did Harvey do next? Try and correct the little mix-up by explaining that the term was actually not a reference to the types of Ludacris-supported college basketball playing "hos" but actually an entirely unrelated play off the fashionista terms "boho" and its corollary "foho," both of which are also often invoked to characterize dresses? Fuck no! He bought a flag, propped himself in front of it and made us believe in liberty again with the most spirited defense of publicly shaming those who dress like prostitutes since the First Amendment was first signed into law.

In the past, TMZ referred to Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, as "poshtitute," Hulk Hogan's daughter a "working girl" and called Lindsay Lohan's trashy ensemble a "HO-rror." A tight mini-dress is a tight mini-dress! We ask you, should the word "ho" be banned? Or only in reference to Black women? Isn't the context in which a word is used almost as important, if not more so, than the actual word?
You have to watch the video, in which Harvey imagines a dystopian future in a country "sanitized" of all offensive language, to get the full impact of the hubris and idiocy and awesomeness that went into this telling little non-moment in history. He didn't even use the term 'ho'! But no one is pointing it out! We clicked through like nine pages of comments! But Harvey saw an opportunity, grabbed it, and became the country's leading defender of free speech. And we suppose, as someone whose gossip website is the fastest-growing media organization in the country, it all makes sense. Let freedom ring!
