Noted dimwitted bigot and frequent star of recordings she didn't know she was starring in Paris Hilton has said something stupid again. Imagine. And it was during New York Fashion Week. Double imagine.
A cab driver recorded a conversation she and a friend were having about the gay hook-up app Grindr. After he explained the mechanics of it, Paris said:
Ewww. Eww. To get fucked? 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 was a gay guy. You'll like, die of AIDS.
This is an example of an idiot saying something idiotic (her disregard of the subjunctive mood is almost as offensive as her ideology), but it's one of those tossed off, private things that would have no impact on the world were it not recorded and distributed. Paris Hilton's opinion on gay sex and ignorance about HIV isn't going to stop gay sex or HIV transmission or change minds or make anyone do anything but bitch on the Internet, roll their eyes and say, "No youuuuuu're disgusting." What's really ridiculous is the resulting statement her rep issued when Radar reached out:
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 gayfriend 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. As she was being shown the website her comments were in reference to those people promoting themselves on the site. The cab driver who recorded this, only provided a portion of the conversation. It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gays. Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone's sexual orientation.
Got that? She wasn't making a derogatory statement about gays, just the disgusting ones with AIDS, and we can all agree that they deserve it, right? Also AIDS makes you horny, as only a huge supporter of the gay community could tell you. Furthermore, she can't be homophobic because she has a "close gayfriend." Glad that's cleared up.
