In what undoubtedly has to be the most important secretly recorded speech of the week, prolapsed tube sock Paris Hilton was caught on tape saying she doesn’t care about 10% of Americans. More or less.
As Radar reports, “Paris Hilton has been caught on tape making homophobic and derogatory statements about gay men who have random sex with strangers even stating ‘most of them probably have AIDS.'”
Hilton’s remarks were recorded by a cab driver, who, let’s not kid ourselves here, is the type of shithead who surreptitiously records the conversations of his fares without their permission, where she pontificated upon matters philosophical and, ok, she just talked about AIDS a lot actually.
Ewww. Eww. To get fucked? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS…I would be so scared if I was a gay guy. You’ll like, die of AIDS.
In case the irony of Paris Hilton complaining about people with STDs wasn’t apparent, I’m just going to leave this space here for you to reflect _________.
As Gawker points out, it wasn’t so much the offhand, albeit gross comments that are the dimly fluttering bulb of disconnect here, but the follow up from her rep. The audio, the spokesman said, was taken out of context.
“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 gayfriend 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.”
That spokesman? You guessed it, Mitt Romney.
