American Psycho scribe Brett Easton Ellis took to Twitter this weekend to voice his support for Paris Hilton’s comments about gay men who use Grindr being “disgusting” and that “most of them probably have AIDS.”

“I kind of agree with Paris Hilton,” the onetime literary wunderkind tweeted Saturday night.

Last week, reported the whorish heiress was taped discussing Grindr with a gay friend in the back of a cab: “Eww, gay guys are the horniest people in the world…they’re disgusting,” she opined. “Dude, most of them probably have AIDS…I would be so scared if I was a gay guy…you’ll like, die of AIDS.”

Just last month, Ellis got in hot water on Twitter by suggesting audiences wouldn’t buy Matt Bomer as Christian, the male lead in 50 Shades of Grey. now that the White Collar star has come out as gay.

Just to make sure his 343,000+ followers didn’t miss this most recent pearl of wisdom, Ellis, 48, later tweeted Sunday morning, “As someone who has used Grindr? Paris Hilton isn’t that far off.”

A quick skim of Ellis’ other tweets this week see him repeatedly slamming the late writer David Foster Wallace as untalented, and waxing cute about a 26-year-old who was apparently dragging him off to bed.

Well, we have to agree with Ellis about one particular Grindr gay being “disgusting”: Him.
