Paris Hilton Comments On Gay Men And AIDS Actually Are Shocking

ParisHiltonThe word "shocking" is often inserted into headlines to grab reader attention, to sensationalize video, audio or text that may not in the end be that shocking. 

Not so with Radar Online's headline on Paris Hilton's odious remarks about gay men who meet on Grindr: "SHOCKING AUDIO: Paris Hilton Blasts Gays Who Have Sex With Strangers: ‘Most Of Them Probably Have AIDS'".

According to the site, a New York City cab driver recently sent them secretly recorded audio of a conversation Paris and a gay male friend had about Grindr.

Explaining the hook-up app to the heiress, the friend remarks, "Say I log into Grindr, someone that's on Grindr can be in that building and it tells you all the locations of where they are and you can be like, 'Yo, you wanna f**k?' and he might be on like, the sixth floor."

Paris' response: "Ewww. Eww. To get f**ked? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS." She later says she would be "afraid" to be gay because "You'll, like, die of AIDS."

Hilton's PR team, dealing with the biggest gaffe they've had to face in a long time because their client has for the most part dropped out of public interest, claims the 31-year old was only talking about HIV-positive men who go in search of unprotected sex.

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 ... 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.

Sigh.

  1. "and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation."
    Except when she does.

  2. I thought this Paris-thing had vanished.

  3. I do agree with what Paris Hilton said...to a point. It is disgusting that men who knowingly have AIDS or an STD are having sex with other men and all without protection. That just perpetuates the stereotype that all gay men are horndogs trying to get laid all the time. Although she really isn't one to talk. She's a straight horndog and probably has HIV or STDS herself!!

  4. And to think some stupid ass gays actually used to like this cvnt 7-8 years ago. It was always obvious she was anti-gay when that video was released of her calling someone a f&ggot.

  5. I wonder if she's smart enough to know that she has a gay brother? What a classy big sis...

  6. Wait Wait Wait...Paris Hilton was elected grand marshall of the pride parade in west hollywood? WTF!!! SMDH. Their are too many activist and GLBT leaders, and models who NEED to be brought to the public's attention. To waste the grand marshall position of Paris is reprehensible. Anyways....

    What's up with her "gay friend"? I hate when members of a said community disparage aspects of their community to "outsiders" to try make themselves look/feel superior and distinguished, even moral.

    People use grindr, have anonymous sex, so f'ing what. So sick of the phony moral -and often hypocritical- moral outrage that comes from people.

  7. Why does she get any attention...for being a rich, bratty, kid who thinks that she is the center of the world

  8. Well, I agreed with the "Ewww" part. Grindr and freely hooking up is gross. I've known too many gay guys who are very careless when it comes to safe-sex. But obviously, we're not all gross. I wonder about Grindr users, though.

  9. Paris should have qualified her words by saying "promiscuous gays", not "gays". There is some truth to what she's saying in relation to the high level of promiscuity, including sex with TOTAL STRANGERS, in the male-male paradigm.

    Don't deny it. It's sold to men under the "gay" notion. There's a lot of money in promiscuity for those who are selling it, such as those who facilitate these stranger sex encounters. Bath houses, sex clubs and Grindr facilitate anonymous stranger sex and the promiscuity it entails.

  10. There's a small kernel of truth to what she's saying. Own it, gays. We don't value monogamy. We skip valuing someone as a person and cut straight to stats. That should be alarming.

  11. why is this news? brainless airhead!

  12. Nothing I haven't heard countless gay men speak about a variety of times....I could give a rats ass about Paris' opinion, but the vicious and even misogynistic comments I see on here give me little hope for homo society and how we are perceived.

  13. She's probably right about the AIDS part though.

  14. Please bhurka this woman, enough is enough

  15. Oh please, these reactions are so stupid. We all know gay men in general are relatively promiscuous. No shocker there.

  16. As a 26 year old gay guy, I have to agree with Paris Hilton. I've noticed more and more guys who want to hook up and have unprotectected sex... especially younger ones. She was trying to convince her friend that online random hookups with strangers are disgusting and dangerous.

    She made a good point.

  17. I wonder how long did her PR team had to come up with this story to cover that bitches ass..

  19. This is the skank who became "famous" for appearing in a sex tape and who has slept with just about every and any guy in L.A. or N.Y.. What is sadder is that the people who coordinate the gay pride parade in West Hollywood asked her to be the grand marshal of the parade in 2005. Typical of L.A. (and of a lot of gay guys in general) to worship beauty over brains.

  20. So what will her next publicity stunt be? Will she and Kirk Cameron become an item? Let's do to these bigots what they once wanted to do to us, round them up and put them somewhere where they can't say anything else as utterly stupid as what they've already said!

  21. Anybody who has a problem with what she said (while assuming that she was speaking only to her gay friend) needs to reread "And The Band Played On."

    She was talking about the guys on Grindr, not gay men in general.

    The gay sex scene spread HIV like wildfire and some gays didn't even stop having sex even when they realized they were spreading it. Let's take some ownership and get off Hilton's back. (I never thought I'd be saying that.)

  22. hate to say it, but how many guys on grindr do have aids (towleroad recently posted about this and status disclosure before hookups)

    let's face the amount of barebacking going on is pretty disgusting

  23. Can you say bullsh*t?

  24. "The word "shocking" is often inserted into headlines to grab reader attention, to sensationalize video, audio or text that may not in the end be that shocking."

    You and I have different definitions of shocking, then. I can't see why it's shocking that a rich, pseudo-celebrity who has impulse-control issues is worth taking seriously. I would care less if this were Lindsay Blowhan.
