Paris Hilton Apologizes Through GLAAD For Homophobic Audio

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayParis HiltonLGBT

Paris Hilton's conversation in the back of an NYC cab was recently taken way out of context after the driver recorded it and circulated a small, offensive fraction of the audio around the web.

She wants her fans and the world to know the truth though, which is that she was NOT intentionally bashing the gay community, but rather talking about a very specific friend in Spain who has AIDS and continues to have unprotected sex.

The reality star and socialite has already called the recording and subsequent media reports "beyond lame", but is taking the next appropriate step and has issued a heartfelt apology.

Despite the negative audio snippet, Paris insists that she is and "always will be a huge supporter of the gay community." Read the entire statement she gave to GLAAD … AFTER THE JUMP!

"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."

We appreciate the apology, gurl!

    Those comments were rich coming from this well known herpes wh*re.

    You are such a ass kisser Mario.

    Didn't she say "gay men are the horniest people I know.. they're disgusting" She didn't say "he's the horniest guy i know.. he's disgusting". This was about the gay community in general and to declare otherwise is ridiculous, she stabs her own friends in the back, do you really think she cares about equality?

  4. boston61 says – reply to this


    Though in her defense the reason so many gay kids do kill themselves is because when they come out they are force grouped with all the freaks and whores of the "community". They just want to be wholesome and popular like every other kid.

    I find it funny you come to the defence of a woman who bashes gay people… and of course now she's spinning it, what else do her parents pay publicists and spin doctors for, yet you rip apart people like Kristen Stewart and Amanda Bynes.

    WOW Perez…What a FAKE YOU ARE..As a gay man I'm totally ashamed to have you be part of our COMMUNITY!!!!!

  10. Bryce1289 says – reply to this


    This is disgusting. I used to love Paris, but I have literally lost all respect for her. Those words should have never even been uttered be a women who's entire career was built with the help of the gay community. I no longer support her and even though an apology was issued, she only issued said apology because she was caught. I am ashamed and embarrassed that I've ever supported her.

  11. Amanda says – reply to this


    If this had been ANY other celebrity (I use the term loosely when it comes to Paris) you would be calling for their execution. You're such a hypocrite…it's disgusting and pathetic

    Paris knows ALLOT of gay people and she's entitled to her opinion. Like it or not.

  17. 17

    She's an idiot!!!!! How can she say she was speaking about ONE person when she says "gay men" and "most of them have aids". Paris is the one having unprotected sex in her bareback videos. Perez is just an ass kisser. I hope GLADD does NOT accept her apology. I never liked her anyway. She's annoying and nasty.

  18. 18

    lost so much respect for her, can't be undone. I used to be one of the ones who liked her a lot too.

  19. 19

    does ANTONE think this crap is sincere?

  20. Ms.Thing says – reply to this


    This is ridiculous. I am disappointed in this bull. Paris Hilton has been seen time and time again talking shit behind peoples backs… Lindsay lohan comes to mind. was she offending all gingers? no because she stated her name. This she said what she meant. Lets sum this up… If i came on your face and then puffed out my bottom lip and said "Sorry"! or "Just kidding" would you be so understanding? NO! i just came on your face a sorry will not help. and what if I said "sorry i really meant to whistle in your ear…everyone knows me they know i meant to whistle in her ear" that makes it better? um wake the hell up this is fucked up!! and to all of you accepting this bull as she clams it … well welcome to your first verbal cum job!

  21. Lori says – reply to this


    SHE'S disgusting and horny. SHE's an ignorant dumb narcisstic elitist entitled snob..whoa! all those negative adjectives describing one person…i wonder how she sleeps at night. shes fucked.

  22. 22

    Screw GLAAD and screw the oversensitive homos. It's called freedom of speech, and if the truth hurts, deal with it. Paris Hilton is a stupid, diseased, nobody whore; she's loving this press. As for Perez … you're an ass-licking nobody who lost weight via AIDS and surgery. We all know it. Your lies will catch up with you, homo.

  23. 23

    Re: CaliWolf – "I'm totally ashamed to have you be part of our COMMUNITY!!!!! " i'm surprised that you guys haven't taken a hit out on this twerp. he is a completely horrible example of gay pride. hearts, dicks,cum etc on straight guys pics.

  24. 24

    Fuck Paris Hilton Shes a fucking low down dirty tramp with a fucking horse face lazy eye and a fucking coochie that can be smelled miles away she had vaginal and oral herpes and shes a disgrace as a person if she has so many gay friends why would she say something like this? cause its how she really feels fuck her and everything she stands for. I wish there was a way she could loose all of her money and be poor. man if only wishes came true. i hate this fucking pig bitch. Oh and btw if anyone has a problem with my comments on P>Hil dont worry ill apologize about this tomorrow and say my words were taken out of context. blah blah blah

  25. Shiloh says – reply to this


    That's what I'm talkin' about! A heartfelt apology stating that she should not have said what she did. No BS about it was not her intention not that she was just bashing a "friend". Not having her publicist speak for her. Just plain and simple. I know I effed up and I'm sorry.

  26. carina says – reply to this


    She cares about no one but Herself!! Most self serving selfish person. This is not worthy of a story, no one cares what she says, thinks, does!!!

  29. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    This two-bit dime store whore has the audacity to call out gays as being promiscuous ? ! ? ! I mean…for Gawd's sake ! This SKANK is responsible for 75% of the STDs of Southern California ! Her cooter is SO infected, the centre of disease control in Atlanta wants to have it analyzed ! Pot, meet kettle. Shows just how DUMB this TRAMP is ! This is too funny !

  30. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Those comments re gays coming from a woman who has seen more ceilings than MichaelAngelo …..? Ironic, ain't it ? (And, Paris dear, we know you read this…go look up the word 'ironic' in the dictionary….). Wonder what her mildly retarded sister, Nicky, has to say of all this …..? Or is she too busy with her career as a 'designer' … ? LOL ! What a TRASH family. Fat-Assed mother - Kathy - raised her two right WHORES !No wonder the father is on the 'down-low'……

  31. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    This Skank's 15 minutes were up a loooong time again, but she keeps bubbling up time to time…kinda like indigestion….or small micro-farts after the big dump !

  32. Billy81 says – reply to this


    We all have our moments of stupidity, and she is attempting to appologize and rectify the situation. This is clearly a misunderstanding of sorts. Knowing Perez is friends with Paris, I hardly think she would intentionally direct that toward the entire gay community. I am gay myself and am a committed and faithful partner. I truly believe that she is only getting this negative attention due to her celebrity status. No one is perfect, and if any one reading this and posting negative comments about her apology should really look at themselves. We all tease or make fun of things, even if it is something that may hurt another. You can't deny the fact that at one point you have done something that unintentionally hurt another person and felt immediately guilty about it afterward. So everyone should just relax and get over it!

  33. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Give me a Break ! She is only apologizing as the gays are a powerful group in entertaiment/media, and she has JUST burned one big bridge ! The truth has come out, and this will affect what is left of the SKANK's 15 minutes, and career….her fugly true colors have been revealed ! LOL ! Good. The final nail in the coffin of her so-called career !Anyone defending her is, well her ! Or her handlers, hanger-ons, publicity people, etc., etc. She is also racsist, I am sure…never see her with black people …….

  34. HarpHaprp says – reply to this


    why did GLAAD publish her appology? no one should publish anything that lifeless lizzard is saying. And her gay friend from the cab, what a gay fella'! Probably he was trying to proudly show her how sexually active he is, while taking the stuff that he said…why would u upset Paris? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH both of them…completely obsolete for this planet! I saw her once in NYC, she is sooo ugly, like a dinosaur bird with plastic surgery improvements. if i see her again, I will spit on her, and then go to GLAAD to publish an appology! GLAAD< SHAME ON YOU!!! your help to her will spread out her rant more, a delight to homophobes around the world. Everyone in GLAAD including perez this website is shallow, kissing up to her for having money and power.

  35. Lady Says says – reply to this


    I can either give or take Paris. But in her deffence I really don't think she was being homophobic with these comments, dumb maybe but I don't think there was ill intention. I know alot of gay people, men and women that are very close to me. I don't think her comments were so much about being gay but about sleeping around, admittedly this makes her a bit of a hypocrite. But lets be honest, most of us would probably say anyone sleeping around so casually, straight or gay is disgusting. And men are generally horny, straight or gay, only thing stopping straight guys getting it so much is women, take her out of the equation and yeah you probably get alot more casual sex. Like I said I'm not a fan, but she has always appeared to support the gay community and I really don't think this was said as homophobic.

  36. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    I know people who know people who know people who know her, and they say she is, alldgedlly, snort'n up a storm…her career is over…she has just pissed of the GAY HOLLYWOOD MAFIA…they don't take kindly to no SKANK WHORE call'n them on their lifestyles…LOLOLOLOLOL ! Her career is DOOMED !Y a don't f*ck with the HollyWood gays - they control HOLLYWOOD !

  42. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Re: PARIS HILTON – Yeah,,,she said something similar like this…disgusting, isn't it ? From one who's cooter juice has seen half the c*cks of Southern California …..

  43. 43

    I agree with Bonga Chik, she shouldn't have to appologize for a private conversation, as dumb as it may have been. I know I've said some down right stupid things when surrounded by my friends and in private, things I would never say in public. Another issue here thats being overlooked is the invasion of her privacy. I'm not a fan of hers, her comments were dumb, but she has appologized, and I think shes one of the last 'celebrities' that should be deemed a homophobe.

  44. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Sorry…she said it, and it was made public. Too bad, so sad. She needs to 'man up' (or, in her case, 'skank up'), and make a 5 million dollar donation to an aids hospice to show her regret…until then, she is just a lazy-eyed big nosed big footed two bit SKANK Homophobe…..sorry, but that is the truth . Her words revealed…THE TRUE PARIS…AND IT AIN'T PRETTY !

  45. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    WHY is it all these people defending her have NO HISTORY on this site …. ? Hmmmmmm…..the family gave their little retarded daughter something to do for the afternoon…? 'Just copy these words, Nicky ……on to the computer….good girl, good girl….' :)

  48. 48

    how this tramp has the audacity to pass judgement on others sex lives is beyond belief! she's a slut who profiteered from a bareback nasty hook up that was filmed and made her famous. She stumbles from one pretty boy to the next coz she cant keep a man. She's a racist, homophobic hateful bitch. pure trash. And you Perez are a effing traitor and ass licking hypocrite. the pair of you sould just die.

    Good one, Phibes ! The horror of the HOLLYWOOD GAY MAFIA is that they will cut you out of movie/marketing/t.v. deals…they HAVE INCRDIBLE POWER, AND will make sure her name is MUD in Tinsletown..'No Business for that Hilton Whore!". Also all the make-up artists, hairstylist, and stylists will conspire to make her to look horrible - even uglier than she already is ! 'No, Paris - a HuMP ON ONE'S BACK IS THE LATEST HOLLYwOOD TREND!

    Re: bonga chik – C U Next Tuesday should apologize for pretending to be a human being. To the other fool who said she was friends with Perez, get a grip. She deigns to speak to Perez because she needs another fool who will champion her causes and give positive spin for all the stupid, ignorant things she says and does. Trying to make her a victim is disgusting, we are all victims for having to see and hear her for so long.

    the taxi driver who did that, do not deserve any attention, who is really hurting gay peoples if you think about it,it is the taxi driver, because he putted public a private conversation, so shut the fuck up Mr taxi driver , you are the one responsable for that mess!!!

  57. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    SHADDAP ! ! The little SKANK brought this on herself…just like Romney and his f'c'k'n stupid comments….No conversations are private in this era of the internet/I-phone/etc…..SO, shaddap !She is just a dumb cum sack !

    Who's gonna listen to her music now?

  65. Kiki says – reply to this


    Paris needs to go back to school, listen more, talk less and to learn to think. Unlike average Joe she has an option of going to work for the Hilton Enerprises. Take a cue from once party girl Ivanka Trump how grown woman that great example of how bit of school at can turn a party girl into a lady. She is obviously bored, and has plenty of time over next 3-5 years to learn something and start using her head, she is after all part of very smart family. Put some panties on and pair of pants and enrol in UCLA low key … we might be suprised. If she is still

  66. Kiki says – reply to this


    She should go back to school, listen more, talk less and learn to think. Unlike average Joe she has option to be part of Hilton Enterprises sort of speaking. 3-5 years from now she can be worse than now or she put on some panties and pair of pants if possible and enrol low key in some classes. LA has some of best schools, so anything pretty much would work for her after all she comes from very smart family- why spend her 30s being just another blonde, she has nothing to loose and possibly to discover she has brains. No better way that the hard way

    No Gay Person out of the approx 1 Million Participants in the 2005 Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade can forget the Controversy when She Was chosen to be the Celebrity Host. Most everyone said she had never done anything for the gay community and did NOT deserve to be sitting up there in her pink convertible. Turns out they were all EXACTLY RIGHT  weren't they.  Nothing but a fake stupid loser hypocrite! She has just Slapped every person there showing her support in the face!

    umm why is she so sorry if she was merely talking about a friend in Spain? I call BS lolz

  71. Fritz says – reply to this


    An apology following a statement such as the one Paris Hilton made is completely irrelevant. It's clear that she doesn't have or care to have an understanding of gay culture in the US, above what is presented to her in a magazine. She's a bigot. And… what's with her nose? I don't understand why no one cares that she has the ugliest nose in the world… and she looks like her sister, if her sister were dressed like a prostitute for Halloween. They're basically twins. But the uglier one gets to go to work while the slightly prettier, but still extremely ugly, sister gets to abuse drugs and have unprotected sex with douche bags.

    The thing is, I've heard worse things said about gay men BY gay men. It doesn't excuse what she said, but are we really going to condemn her for what was supposed to be a personal conversation between her and her gay friend? Imagine the trouble we'd all get into if people took our private conversations we have with our friends about certain races or sexual orientations and made it public. The driver who recorded the conversation found an opportunity to make money off of her comments by exposing it to the press. She apologized and no harm to the gay community was done.

    Well, for one she isn't too far off base. It's been proven that gays were the number 1 cause for the spread of HIV back when it first hit in the 80s. That said, the fact anyone would take whatever this moron had to say and actually go defcon 1 over it is mindblowing. GLAAD throwing their hissy fit as usual..She sounded like she had an IQ of 10. Her audio wasn't offensive..It was amusing that someone could be that stupid.

Is she ever gonna be in toruble with the Gay Mafia…Run, little Skank, run !

  78. ICYNDICEY says – reply to this


    If I were her I would sue the living shit out the TLC (Taxi Limousine Commission) for wiretapping. This cab driver is an employee of the TLC and the TLC should be held responsible for invasion of privacy and wiretapping. In doing this…this driver committed a federal offense. He should be fired and jailed immediately. If I were her I'd file a 100 million lawsuit against New York.

    She is a stupid, pig who probably has herpes and all STD's known to humanity. how dare she say those comments about the gay community. talentless prostitute, she knows her 15 minutes are over, and this is how she is trying to stay relevant. BITCH.

    paris really needs too look in the mirror! Shes one too talk? everytime you read a storey on her or see a pic of her w/ a new guy ,lits always the same:
    AND SO ON…..
    its the same crap every year with 3/4 different guys a year, and thakt means that she BEDS 3//4 guys a year- so in my opinion MISS PARIS,L YOU ARE DISGUSTING! so before you comment about ppl, look at yourself, its like ur running ur own bordello ….

    I believe your carreer is going to finish soon anyway, no talent, can't sing and no brain

  89. blah blah blah says – reply to this


    Isnt anyone more concerned that its ok to have a private conversation taped in a cab?
    She was talking to her gay friend about random sex and she stated that she felt it was discusting. It could have easily been random straight sex. Lots of straights and gays feel random sex in a location like the one they were talking about is discusting. She didnt say gay sex was discusting or gays were discusting. Lets knit pick the world to death. Go get a BJ in a public toilet if that will make you feel better but get over this girls…Please.

  90. blah blah blah says – reply to this


    Re: ICYNDICEY – Exactly! I agree. Or she could buy the cab company and replace everyone that works there. I dont like her much so I am not defending her but I think she has a right to say that gay random sex or straight random sex or a person who is HIV positive having unprotected random sex is disgusting. So she does not have a right to her opinion and no right to voice it to a gay friend in a private conversation? Any gay folks out there that think random sex is discusting better keep it to themselves.

  91. William says – reply to this


    she is disgusting… !!! How hypocritical from a women who has a porn video on the net…. Her bullshit apology is to save face… how sad that people still feel this way… Her words have hurt many people….and fuels the fire creating fear and hate within our community and the world. I do not accept and will never accept her apology.
