Just a few hours after an anti-gay scandal broke out involving Paris Hilton, the socialite tweeted a picture of herself with an openly-gay American Idol finalist.
Paris tweeted, “Love this pic of @AdamLambert & I during #NYFashionWeek! He looks amazing with his new hair color! Love him”
Damage control? You’ll have to decide that.
But, in an audiotape leaked online on Thursday, Paris is heard saying, ”Gay guys are the horniest people in the world … they’re disgusting … Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
Paris’ rep says the comments were taken out of context, and, “Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation.”
