GLAAD demands Paris Hilton Apologize for Gay and Racial Slurs

GLAAD has demanded Paris Hilton explain and apologize for use of N-word and F-word in "Paris Exposed" video: "The video, which appears to have been taken by an amateur videographer at a private party, shows Hilton referring to someone using the 'F-word' and referring to herself and her sister, Nicky (who also calls a man the 'F-word' in the video), by saying, 'We're like two [N-word]s.' In one stream of insults, Paris Hilton says,'[Expletive deleted] hoodlum, broke poor bitch from, like, Compton.'"

Parishiltonexposed_2Said GLAAD's Neil Giuliano: "When Paris Hilton utters these words into a camera, it creates a permanent record that -- regardless of when it occurred and because it has been made public -- she must bear responsibility for. These are not frivolous words, and to use them as if they are gives tacit sanction to the racism and homophobia they engender. Hilton has an obligation to go on the record, explain herself, and publicly apologize to the LGBT and African American communities and all those offended by these slurs."

More on this from CNN. Ashley Banfield seems to think that the Isaiah Washington incident has "defused" some of Hilton's responsibility...

  1. An apology from Ms. Hilton!?! I'm sure it will be earnest and heart-felt. Bigger fish to fry than the rantings of a rich girl.

    peace

  2. Who cares what she says? She is disgusting and vile. No apology that comes from her lips will be sincere. She is a terrible person and it should be left at that.

  3. Perhaps we should just stop paying attention to her completely. Coverage of her "outrageous" behavior only fuels her idiotic takeover of our culture. Let's move on to more serious incidents of homophobia (a category in which I place the Isiah Washington scandal, as his attack occurred within a workplace setting and thus needs to be dealt with strongly by his employers)

  4. Please let this be the end of her.

  5. Oh come now. She's just talkin' street cuz it's "cool". Stupid YES!, but the context is just playing around.

    I doubt Paris dislikes gays or blacks. She certainly has many friends that are both.

  6. Just because something is "caught on camera" doesn't mean it deserves an apology. What are the chances such an apology would be sincere? We've literally got video cameras everywhere in society now thanks to the cell phones and small digital cameras. Maybe the Bush presidency is getting what they wanted, with people spying on their neighbors and reporting anything offensive. I think the GLAAD needs to work on more important issues.

  7. I couldn't agree more -- let's not pay her any mind and hope she goes away. Unfortunately, there are thousands of teenage girls who look up to her (God knows why) -- an apology from her might be helpful to those kids who follow her gospel.

  8. Why do we care what Paris has to say about any given topic? Who gave her her 15 minutes in the first place, and why?

  9. That was a colossal waste of 4 minutes and 49 seconds of my life.

  10. dumb! i don't think she has to apologize. i'm sure many of us, if caught on tape, would say things as idiotic of this. glaad should apologize for being ridiculous.

  11. I agree she's not being malicious, she's just a dumb, flat ass ho with money. Still...mind your manners tramp.

  12. Can somebody forward this along to the fools at Christopher Street West who 2 years ago appointed Paris and her mother as Grand Marshalls of the Pride Parade?

    So many of my friends were disgusted and let CSW know but they just came back with a very cryptic - you'll see how gay-friendly she is in upcoming months. In hindsight think they were just alluding to the release of her "dance" "album".

    We didn't even go back to Pride last year because the memory was just too gross.

  13. Now we know that money can't buy class or any dance skills what so ever. But it can buy her monthly supply of valtrex

  14. I'm probably going to get slagged for this, but, in general, America is a sad culture these days. Of course it's not just Paris Hilton, can't blame her for everything now can we?

    But really, when it comes to Ms Hilton, what gives?

    Dare I ask why would you even watch that? Just to hear or see some inane excuse for celebrity say "nigger" and "faggot"?

    I had to sigh in defeat when Andy actually posted references to Ms. Hilton's recent attempt at music. Should readers have cared?

    And (thank you for the reminder of her as Grand Marshall of a Pride Parade - yikes!), what they hell are people thinking?

    Maybe we should all regroup.

    Think about it, search high and low.

    Find someone with an iota of a redeeming quality to read and write about.

    I'd go on but then I'd have to chide myself for wasting any more time on such a sad excuse for public interest.

  15. What an idiot. If only she had a job to be fired from. And yet, gay men all over the world worship her. Scary.

    Posted by: Daniel | Feb 6, 2007 1:16:52 PM


  16. I don't know any of my gay friends who worship her, but I believe Daniel is probably right.

    I'm sure she's OK with gays. Not too sure about African Americans, though.

  17. ^Well, she's friends with Nicole who is half-black...

    Hilton is still a worthless human being. Who cares what she thinks?

  18. In keeping with making sure people don't misunderstand my comments:

    [sarcasm/joke]: Paris's apology. "uhm, like back in the day, I thought those words were, uhm, hot. But thanks to GLAAD, who by the way are hot, I know now that it is, uhm, not hot. I love my fa...gay fans. You are hot. Don't forget to watch the new season of the Simple Life."

  19. we end up smelling like roses when idiot-garbage talks like that.
    let's not concern ourselves with anybody that'd pay any attention to that heap of skank.

  20. Paris who? Just goes to show, money can't buy class...

  21. Remember when she was on the cover of Out a while back, promoted as some sort of gay icon? I don't know any gay people (or straight, for that matter) who care about her at all.

    Like Joan Rivers said, "I don't talk about her. What has she done?"

  22. if one could take it as theater, yet, even that gets put into question these days amongst people who have actually questioned something other than a manner in which one can strategically present their winking dowager snatch....events of the absurd or manners of presentation are difficult to experience within the realm of police thought or erroneous and drab productions that have come to edify nothing i'd want to include on the welcome mat of intelligent or humane port of entry seeing that there are people doing service however ugly in different locations -- such a joy to return to pockets of septic fields of staggering waste....just as, some stories are rather easy to fabricate. using these words to sound ghetto whereas there are many other experiences with these woven into the fabric if you're really trying to communicate something. yet, do people often participate in that form of interchange these days -- with many being sucked bone-dry by their techno gadgets?? much as, the infrared camera gimmick one more time -- just as theater of the absurd or quality theater in many cases beyond celebrity mouthwash or academic parochial wincing -- welcome to the gulag of drab runway.

  23. GLAAD is willing to issue a statement for a word uttered in a some stolen, obscure private video, but remain suspiciously silent when homophobic slurs and abuses are perpetreted by supposed members of our community..including a certain other 'Hilton' who isn't even deserving of a mention for the general vileness of his enterprise.

    GLAAD makes me sadder and sadder everyday.

  24. pleae nexttttt i agree with mark, who cares ,,,glaaad pay attention to more topics

    Posted by: biatchhhhh | Feb 6, 2007 4:14:19 PM


  25. I find this all very interesting:

    Hardly ANYBODY knew who Isaiah Washington was before his controversy. He was just "that Black actor" seen once a week on that show with the "Mcdreamy" Patrick Dempsey. Isaiah couldn't catch a cold, yet alone attention until he made his comments that were reported third hand by an unknown source. He was burned at the stake long before anybody from Grey's Anatomy even substantiated the story. There was no tape of him saying it, but people assumed it was true anyway and went after him with a vengence.

    Now along comes Paris who unlike Isaiah is televised, written about, talked about, worshipped, gossiped about, blogged about EVERY MOTHERFUCKING DAY! EVERYBODY knows who SHE is! Her every move is recorded. Ignorant slut that she is, she still has more power and inluence in her jeweled pinky toe than Isaiah will ever have in his entire life.
    And yet everybody wants to give this rich bitch a pass because she is nothing but an ignorant slut. Umm, yeah, an ignorant slut with influence and power. She has called Black people niggers before this tape. It was reported and dropped cold.
    Why the fucking double standard? Is it because what Daniel said is true? So what if she gave a fake apology. You were convinced that whenever Isaiah apologized it would be fake, but you still wanted it! So what's the difference with this 'ho? This is some hyporcritical bullshit right here.
