You would think that a celebrity who has a huge brand and business would not want to criticize a certain part of the people who she might want paying for her products, but apparently that’s not the case. Paris Hilton was recorded criticizing gay men and thanks to a taxi driver, we got to hear all of the sordid details.
She was taking a cab with a gay male friend when he started describing Grindr to her. Her pal said, “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.’”
Paris said on response, “Eww. Eww. To get f**ked? 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 might like, die of AIDS.”
Her rep issued 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. 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 rep went on to say, “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.”
