Do Black Holes Destroy Mass

If the Higgs particle is responsible for mass, and it is thought that it will be found on the next CERN experiments, then the hot black hole singularity should restore Higgs symmetry and make all absorbed particles massless.

The distant observer never sees this because only the mass being absorbed into the event horizon is detected. So the black hole remains massive to the distant observer.

But it seems that all mass absorbed into the singularity should be destroyed when the energy rises above the Higgs rest mass. Yet I have never seen any statements to that effect in the literature.

Does anyone know why?
