Paris Hilton Announces Gay Guys (Specifically Those Who Use Grindr) Are 'Disgusting'
"I would be so scared if I was a gay guy... you'll like die of AIDS."

 

Paris Hilton took a New York City cab on September 7th, during which she participated in a conversation with a gay friend. The cab driver began recording the conversation as her friend mentioned Grindr- a leading social website that allows gay men to find sexual partners. At the mention of Grindr, Paris went on to say:

“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.”

The outlash of negative comments from Hilton’s derogatory remarks prompted her rep to issue a public statement, the rep went on to say:

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.”

Her rep concluded with, “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.”
