Paris Hilton has apologized to fans and the gay community for saying “most homosexual men probably have AIDS”.
She was secretly recorded by a cab driver making the comments in the early hours while sharing a ride with a gay pal in NYC.
After her friend had told her about gay dating site Grindr where guys can meet via GPS she declared, “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 were a gay guy. You’ll like, die of AIDS”
She defends her comments in saying that is was a private conversation with a gay friend and in no way towards the entire gay community, but adds that she’s sorry she upset and caused pain to her gay friends, wishing she could take back every word.
In addition she says gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people she knows and that HIV and AIDS is something she takes seriously and shouldn’t have been thrown around in conversation.
