Looks like Paris Hilton is back in the news for saying something stupid again. And this time, it was during New York Fashion Week. Below is a conversation that was secretly recorded while she and a friend were grabbing a taxi ride. To add a little context, the duo had been discussing the gay hook-up app Grindr. After he explained the mechanics of it, Paris can be heard saying:
Ewww. Eww. To get fucked? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS...I would be so scared if I was a gay guy. You'll like, die of AIDS.
Of course, Paris Hilton is entitled to her opinions, no matter how ignorant it sounds. Nevertheless, below is the resulting statement her rep issued to Radar:
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 gayfriend 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.
