TMZ just received the official statement from Joshua D.S. Morales, creator and organizer of the Free Paris Hilton petition.
Morales babbled, "I would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome Paris Hilton back to society and tell her that all her fans and supporters are relieved and ecstatic that she is out. She has served her time for her mistake. This is a wonderful day in our country's great history and I am happy to be a part of it. The petition that I created, although seemingly unsuccessful, collected over 30,000 signatures and shows that Ms. Hilton has the love and support of fans worldwide. Welcome back, Paris. We missed you!"
It doesn't appear as though Josh has heard all the news. Paris is confined to her home. Not quite as free as she'd probably like to be
