Paris Hilton has been caught on tape making homophobic and derogatory statements about gay men who have random sex with strangers even stating “most of them probably have AIDS.”
A spokesperson for Hilton said:
“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.”
On the audio Paris says at one point, Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
The heiress was in Manhattan for New York Fashion Week and in the early morning hours of Friday, September 7, Paris remarks were caught on tape by a cab driver, when her pal, who is an openly gay male model, is heard in the audio clip describing Grindr, an app that gay men use to locate other gay men for hookups.
The male friend says: “Say I log into Grindr, someone that’s on Grindr can be in that building and it tells you all the locations of where they are and you can be like, ‘Yo, you wanna f**k?’ and he might be on like, the sixth floor,” the pal says.
“Ewww. Eww. To get f**ked? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world,” Paris is heard saying in the exclusive audio in response.
“They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
The driver was reported saying: “I couldn’t believe what was coming out of Paris’ mouth and the way she was talking about gay men.”
Nearly halfway into the 50-second clip, Paris is heard saying she’d be afraid to be a gay man and again throws the AIDS card into the mix.
