DJ Paris Hilton Is Super Sorry for Saying Gays Are "Disgusting" and "Probably Have AIDS"
DJ Paris Hilton is super sorry, you guys.
Yesterday, she pissed off a bunch of Dorothy's friends by makings some rude and insensitive comments about the gay community. She didn't mean it, though. Because she didn't know her conversation was being recorded by a cab driver.
But since everyone freaked out on her so hardcore, Paris wrote up a totally sincere apology and released it to anti-discrimination monitoring organization GLAAD. Do you forgive her?
"As anyone close to me knows," she begins. "I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community."
But what did she say that could be so horrible? Only that gays are gross and full of AIDS.
She was actually with a gay friend when she said it. They'd been discussing popular social hook-up app Grindr, and the opportunistic cabby snipped this bit of the conversation for a salacious leak.
"Ewwww ... Gay guys are the horniest people in the world," she said to her friend. "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, that's not good PR jazz. But Paris is making up for it.
"Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know. It is so wrong when people bully or put down others for being gay. No one should have to go through that," she writes. "Again, I am so sorry from the bottom of my heart and I feel absolutely horrible."
