It was just a matter of time before Paris Hilton did something stupid to turn the spotlight back onto her. Not that she hasn't been trying to get attention all along.
But nothing gets the attention of the press more than a pseudo-celebrity disparaging the gays.
Paris Hilton is catching heat for comments she made about gay men during a recent cab ride. Paris, the spawn of the multi-millionaire hotel magnate, supposedly didn't know she was being recorded.
"Gay guys are the horniest people in the world, the Hilton heiress can be heard saying. "They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."
The comments were made during a Sept. 7 cab ride in NYC, TMZ reports. Hilton's team claims the cab driver secretly recorded the audio while Paris was having a conversation with a gay friend who was also in the cab.
Of course she was joking, but the media is running with it because celebrity news has been slow lately.
During the conversation, a man can be heard bringing up Grindr -- a popular social web site that gay men sometimes use to find sexual partners.
Hilton responds, "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."
Hilton's rep has released a statement ... saying, "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."
"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.”
