Paris Hilton has come under fire again after being caught on audio in a cab in New York on September 7th during fashion week.
In shocking audio obtained by website Radaronline, the 31-year-old heiress is heard saying that ‘most homosexual men probably have AIDS.’
Innocent: Since the tape has emerged, the socialite’s representatives have issued a statement claiming Paris was merely pointing about the dangers of unprotected sex
A shocked Paris is then heard saying: ‘Ewww. Eww. To get f***ed? 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.’
The conversation was recorded by the driver of the taxi, who has told Radaronline that he was shocked over Paris’s remarks.
Paris’s rant came as her friend began telling her about a cell phone application called Grindr, where gay men can find other local gay, bi and curious guys for dating with the help of GPS
‘I couldn’t believe what was coming out of Paris’ mouth and the way she was talking about gay men,’ he told the website.
Since the tape has emerged, the socialite’s representatives have issued a statement claiming Paris was merely pointing about the dangers of unprotected sex.
‘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,’ her spokesperson told Radaronline.
‘The conversation became heated, after a close gayfriend told her in a cab ride, a story about a gay man who has AIDS and is knowingly having unprotected sex.
‘It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gay her publicist stated.
‘Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation.’
Meanwhile, stars have begun slamming the actress on Twitter over her comments.
Among them, openly gay singer Boy George said: ‘Another star tramples on flowers! SHAME!’
This is not the first time Hilton has come under fire for trashing minorities. In March 2011 author Neil Strauss’ new book Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead, he shares an anecdote about meeting an 18-year-old Paris Hilton who opens up to him about getting implants at 14 until her mom made her take them out, wanting to pose for Playboy and making out with Vin Diesel before realizing he’s some percent black. Via LA Weekly:
HILTON: I went out with that guy last night.
HILTON (points to an actor in Saving Private Ryan): We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and I saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross. (pauses). Does that guy look black to you?
How black does a guy have to be?
HILTON: One percent is enough for me.
