Perez Hilton responds to Miley Cyrus photo uproar: 'It's okay for [her] to be a little sexier. Because she's almost 18.'

He prefaced the link: “If you are easily offended, do NOT click here … Oh, Miley! Warning: truly not for the easily offended!” The post and reportedly explicit photo have since been removed.

Hilton posted a video reaction to the Internet’s uproar Monday night that was about as “apologetic” as child pornography is “legal.” In the video, Hilton explained, “I think now it’s okay for Miley to be a little sexier. Because she’s almost 18, you know, so it’s okay for Miley to show her boobs and expand, uh, her horizons.” Neither Hilton nor Cyrus has addressed the incident directly. (Cyrus’ rep has yet to respond to EW’s calls for comment.)

An attorney told Salon.com that Hilton could be facing serious legal trouble.
