EXCLUSIVE: Paris Hilton’s Apology: Gays Are The Strongest People I Know

Posted on September 20th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Paris Hilton released an apology late Thursday night following media reports that she said disparaging comments about gay men and AIDS. Paris' comments were made during a conversation with a gay friend that was recorded by a New York cab driver, edited, then released online.

GLAAD obtained this apology from Paris and sent it to RumorFix:

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.

      I know she said something stupid but is that really a surprising to anyone?  What I find strange is the cab driver was recording them.  Was she on Taxi Cab Confessions or something?

      Oh you have done it now.  You have turned the gay community against you . Do you know what that means you hair will never look the same.  Your warobe will never be the same and your drinks will not be the same.  In general your life will never be the same you poor loser.  Something of this nature coming out of you does not surprize anyone.  You are nothing but a spoil brat born with a silver spoon in your mouth feeling everyone is below you .  Grow the hell up.
