The Celebinator in Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Celebinator is a blogger at the site “” He is clearly a parody of celebrity news blogger Perez Hilton, given that many of his stories are about outing closeted celebrities including Clay “Pain Giver” Jackson. He also infers that Luis and Tony are having a sexual relationship. One wiki suggests that he is meant to be read as a gay character.

The video of the missions “Blog This…” and “…Blog This!,” where Gay Tony outlines their problems with the blogger and where Luis drop The Celebinator from a helicopter to dissuade him from posting more stories appears below (content warning: violence).
