Paris Hilton

Gay Men Are Disgusting

... Most Probably Have AIDS

Paris Hilton is under fire for comments she made about gay men ... claiming, "Gay guys are the horniest people in the world ... they're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."

The comments were made during a Sept. 7 cab ride in NYC -- and Hilton's team claims the cab driver secretly recorded the audio while Paris was having a conversation with a gay friend.

During the conversation, a man can be heard bringing up Grindr -- a popular phone app that gay men sometimes use to find sexual partners.

Hilton responds, "Ewwww ... gay guys are the horniest people in the world. Most of them probably have AIDS ... I would be so scared if I was a gay guy ... you'll like die of AIDS."

Hilton's rep has released a statement ... saying, "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."

"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. The cab driver who recorded this, only provided a portion of the conversation."

"It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gays."

"Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation.”

Not that I'm a big fan of Paris Hilton's, but I'm assuming she meant most men on Grindr...which is probably not very far from the truth. And a lot of gay men are extremely promiscuous, hence websites like Grindr.

I'm a gay guy and I totally agree with her comment even though im not a fan of hers. She didn't seem to generalize to the whole community but if you head to any of the gay hook up websites you will see how many guys are there looking for sex... the sad and sick thing is that plenty of them lie about their HIV status. Just head to any health district and get the facts.

Since AIDS is mostly a heterosexual disease in the world at 90% of all victims, especially in Africa and Asia, and she jetsets around, SHE should be worried.
