Woaaaa, say what you want about Paris Hilton, her whiny voice, and her penchant for tiny dogs, but we never thought she would go off on a homophobic rant! Leave that stuff for Mel Gibson!
On Sept. 7 in NYC during a cab ride with a gay male friend, Paris is heard calling gay guys “disgusting” and that they “probably have AIDS.”
First of all, isn’t it illegal to record someone’s voice without his or her consent? Ok, that aside. Here’s what Paris said:
Her gay male friend was telling Paris about the social media app, Grindr, which is basically a booty-call app for gay guys. To which Paris says, “Eww, gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
Woa, did she seriously just pull the AIDS card!?
She goes on to say, “I would be so scared if I were a gay guy. You’ll like, die of AIDS.”

Anyways, Paris’ rep released this statement, basically saying that Paris’ taxi-cab rant was a public service announcement about 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 rep tells Hollyscoop.
“The conversation became heated, after a close gay friend 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…Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation.”
But let's play devil's advocate for a second, Paris had unprotected sex with Rick Salomon in her 2004 porn classic "1 Night in Paris." I'm just saying...
