Paris Hilton

Apologizes

'Gays are Strong, Inspiring'

Paris Hilton
has issued an apology for the comments she made about gay men ... saying, "Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know."

Of course, Hilton's apology is in response to a secretly recorded piece of audio released earlier this week which caught the heiress saying such gems like, "Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. Most of them probably have AIDS."

Paris had already released a statement trying to explain herself ... but now, she's issued a full-on apology -- posted on GLAAD's website, no less -- saying, "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."

She continued, "Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know ... 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."

This is not the first time Paris as made slurs against groups of people. She should have been more careful in her choice of words if she meant only that dating website.

It is amazing that someone so stupid has become so rich selling perfume, accessories. Hilton is adored by young girls who don't know better.

HIV infections - Most (61%) of these new infections occurred in gay and bisexual men. Black/African American men and women were also strongly affected and were estimated to have an HIV incidence rate that was almost 8 times as high as the incidence rate among whites.

I think Paris' comment was more an expression of disgust with the website than gay people themselves, although I find it pretty ironic considering she gets passed around more often than a coke dish.

I'm more disappointed in the way she talks. 31 years old and sounding like an immature teenybopper. Read a book or something.

"Wal-Mart....do they make walls there"

That's why Paris should never open her mouth ever again....unless she wants to make another video.

She said it, now she regrets saying it, she says that's not who she is man she's lying that's exactly who she is. What she thinks cause she has money she can talk about people the way she does to make herself feel better then go ahead cause her turn will come and it won't b pretty. Karmas a bitc*

"Know that it is not who I am." Paris, that's what you said about your"character" on "the Simple Life."

It's time you faced it: It's you.
