Paris Hilton Issues Apology Regarding Gay Comments View Count: 56
Heiress Paris Hilton has issued an apology to GLAAD about her remarks about gay men during a conversation with a friend in a taxi. The conversation was recorded without her knowledge. In the recording, Hilton said, “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. Most of them probably have AIDS.”
Hilton’s apology, which was posted on the GLAAD website, is in full below:
As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community. I am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families with the comments heard this morning. I was having this private conversation with a friend of mine who is gay and our conversation was in no way towards the entire gay community. It is the last thing that I would ever want to do and I cannot put into words how much I wish I could take back every word.
HIV/AIDS can hurt anyone, gay and straight, men and women. It’s something I take very seriously and should not have been thrown around in conversation.
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. Again, I am so sorry from the bottom of my heart and I feel absolutely horrible. I hope that everyone can accept my apology and know that it is not who I am or how I feel in any way.
Thank you for taking a minute to read this, I love you.Paris Hilton Issues Apology Regarding Gay Comments by Jim Vassallo
