Paris Hilton's comments about gay men who use a cell phone app for sexual hook ups were expressions of concern about the dangers of unprotected sex, not homophobic slurs, her publicist said Thursday.
The Hollywood socialite said, "Gay guys are the horniest people in the world," called them "disgusting" and suggested "most of them probably have AIDS" in the short conversation secretly recorded by a New York cab driver two weeks ago, according to RadarOnline.
The online celebrity gossip site did not identify the driver or reveal how much, if anything, was paid for the recording published Thursday.
Hilton's publicist, in a statement sent to CNN Thursday, confirmed the recording was authentic, but said, "It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gays."
"Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone's sexual orientation," the statement said.
Well, she just lost a goodly portion of her "fan base".
Probibly, gay guys and young girls
No..... that's Madona
No such thing as bad publicity. Wonder how much Hilton's publicist paid to post this cr*p?
She must have another "album" coming out soon.
Looks who 's talking....
I keep forgetting most of these open forums just post views that THEY agree with
As opposed to....?
I still love her......
FREEDOM OF SPEECH.....
FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION .......
PURSUIT OF '"HER" HAPPINESS......
As a pathologically horney hetero man, I resent her suggestion that gay men are hornier than hetero men.
You know, I found what she said curious too...considering how many hetero men have been in Paris...
must be true...out of the mouth of babes with lil mister: gays can do wrong...
Funny i thought her kind was the ones who promote being gay is good i guess perez hilton will be getting a name change
This just in: Paris and Perez Hilton are the same person.
NO! YOU DO NOT Have the right to sit as a GRAND MARSHALL in a GAY PRIDE PARADE and BE ALLOWED TO SPEW FILTH LIKE THAT!
No Gay Person out of the approx 1 Million Participants in the 2005 Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade can forget the Controversy when She Was chosen to be the Celebrity Host. Most everyone said she had never done anything for the gay community and did NOT deserve to be sitting up there in her pink convertible. Turns out they were all EXACTLY RIGHT weren't they. Nothing but a fake stupid loser hypocrite! She has just Slapped every person there showing her support in the face!
Gay pride parade hails Paris Hilton and mom
June 11, 2005|Chris Lee | Special to The Times
When asked to be co-grand marshal of the Los Angeles Gay Pride celebrations this Sunday in West Hollywood, celebutante Paris Hilton answered with her trademark, "That's hot."
But some gay activists are offended that the 24-year-old heiress and her mother, Kathy Hilton, have been chosen as figureheads for an event themed "How Do You Wear Your Pride?"
