If the political world proves anything it’s that what you say could very well be recorded and then released at a later to date to make you look like a terrible human being. Such is the case for Paris Hilton, as a taxi ride confession audio has surfaced in which Hilton makes some disparaging remarks about gay men.
Apparently, the cabbie was the one doing the taping and during a conversation with a fellow passenger about Grindr, a well-known social site that can be used for some hook-ups, Paris said the following:
“Ewwww … gay guys are the horniest people in the world. Most of them probably have AIDS … I would be so scared if I was a gay guy … you’ll like die of AIDS.”
Not the most informed opinion but according to Paris’ camp the snippet of audio was taken WAY out of context. In an official response, a rep for the heiress stated:
“Paris Hilton’s comments were to express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life threatening disease. The conversation became heated, after a close gay friend told her in a cab ride, a story about a gay man who has AIDS and is knowingly having unprotected sex. He also discussed a website that encourages random sex by gay men with strangers. As she was being shown the website her comments were in reference to those people promoting themselves on the site. The cab driver who recorded this, only provided a portion of the conversation. 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 convo happened back on Sept 7th as Paris was attending New York Fashion Week. Recently, Hilton has tweeted out much love to a couple of famous openly gay men whom she spent some time with during NYFW:
