Hilary Duff checked in with fans on her blog at AOL’s KOL service on Tuesday (June 27) to address the controversy surrounding her alleged comments about Good Charlotte boyfriend Joel Madden’s hometown. “On MSN’s ‘Hot Gossip’ column, I was quoted as calling the town of Waldorf, Maryland as ‘a pretty ghetto place,'” Duff writes. “I want to set the record straight. I have never called Waldorf ‘ghetto.’ If a journalist has printed that, they might have me relaying a story Joel told me about when he moved to Baltimore when he was 18 and had no money. The place he was living was pretty ghetto. The journalist must have found out where Joel spent his childhood and took my words out of context. I didn’t say Waldorf was ‘ghetto.’ The place he moved to in Baltimore was. Joel loves where he grew up, and is taking me there in a month to show me around and he only has great things to say about his home town and the nice people.”
