Paris Hilton went into high damage control Thursday, apologizing for saying gay men were “disgusting” and “probably had AIDS.”
In an apology she released to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD.)
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.
Meh. Words, words, and more words.
Perhaps Paris you could write a million dollar check made out to the Gay Mens Health Crisis and do a year volunteering deliver food though “Gods Love We Deliver” to AIDS patients as restitution and penance for your slander Paris?
