Paris Hilton apologises for AIDS comments
Sat, 22 Sep 2012 9:15a.m.
Socialite Paris Hilton has issued a grovelling apology for her controversial comments about AIDS, insisting, "I wish I could take back every word."
Hilton was recorded discussing homosexuals, HIV, and gay social networking website Grindr with a friend during a cab journey in New York earlier this month.
During the conversation, Hilton was heard saying, "Gay guys are the horniest people in the word... Most of them probably have AIDS... I would be so scared if I was a gay guy... you'll, like, die of AIDS."
Hilton has now spoken out to apologise for the scandal, telling the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), "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.
"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."

NO! YOU DO NOT Have the right to sit as a GRAND MARSHALL in a GAY PRIDE PARADE and BE ALLOWED TO SPEW FILTH LIKE THAT!
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!
