Paris Hilton told a gay friend that she believes “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world … they’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS,” according to various media reports, like this one via TMZ:
The comments were made during a Sept. 7 cab ride in NYC — and Hilton’s team claims the cab driver secretly recorded the audio while Paris was having a conversation with a gay friend.
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.”
“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.”
Paris Hilton became famous in 2003 after the release of her sex tape.
