Paris Hilton: “Sorry From The Bottom Of My Heart” For Calling Grindr Gays Disgusting AIDS Carriers

Each week, Queerty picks one blowhard, hypocrite, airhead, sanctimonious prick or other enemy of all that is queer to be the Douche of the Week.

Celebutard Paris Hilton waited a whole day before shedding crocodile tears over getting caught calling gay men on Grindr “digusting” and saying they “probably have AIDS” in a conversation with a gay friend that was recorded by a New York City taxi driver.

Last night she released the following apology to GLAAD:

As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community. 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.

HIV/AIDS can hurt anyone, gay and straight, men and women. It’s something I take very seriously and should not have been thrown around in conversation. Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know. It is so wrong when people bully or put down others for being gay. No one should have to go through that.

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.

Thank you for taking a minute to read this, I love you.

Not exactly the defensive explanation Hilton’s spokeswoman released earlier. Did Hilton write this apology? Did she even read it? Sending a press release to GLAAD is about the least a celebrity can do when they’ve stepped that deep in it.

Look, there are bigger fish to fry: Paris Hilton isn’t campaigning to take away our rights or penning homophobic columns for right-wing blogs. She’s just a spoiled-rich rapidly aging socialite who says something stupid every time she opens her mouth. She’s not really the enemy. She’s just a douche.

    What the fuck ever. I never liked her anyway, who gives a shit what that talentless ho thinks.

  • JOHN 1957

    Sorry Paris! Apology not accepted. Maybe if you shouldn’t talk out in public after you’ve done snow (coke,blow), you seem to get too loquacious and end up putting your big flat foot in your mouth. Bottom line your uncouth!

  • DarkZephyr

    Oh get over it. She may not be the best human being in the world, but its obvious she was just having a private conversation and worded herself stupidly, as many of us do when we are just chilling with friends. Why would a homophobe have openly gay friends and marshal pride parades?

  • Greg Garavani

    Oh please, haven’t we all had a breeder friend of ours react that way out of complete ignorance for not being prepared to see something like Grindr? She’s always been there for our community, but sometimes any individual who loves us gays can slip for not being prepared for what goes on within us, so they need a lesson like this to help make them really realize what they’ve said, and this was it. And most men on Grindr are disgusting anyways, I know we all hate reaching our ‘block’ limit everyday so you’re just as guilty.

  • JOHN 1957

    It’s obvious what she said is what she thinks of the gay community as a whole otherwise why say it. She’s been around long enough not to be ignorant and be a little more educated. She hangs around the gays because of the benefits and no one else will have her at this point. Not all of us have so called breeder friends or people who don’t think what damage they might do to others before opening their mouths in private or especially in public. We choose to have people who give a damn in our lives not put us down when they think no one is looking. She needs to hold on to her gay friends dearly, because most people are over her.

  • Dumdum

    A pampered pretentious attention whore.She contributes nothing cares for no-one but herself.A complete waste of space.Her carbon footprint could feed a small country.To say that she is a disgusting pig would be an insult to the porcine genus.She slithers across the land leaving a shiny slimy trail,Banana Slugs have more personality and panache.

  • hf2hvit

    I hope she gets a nasty, pus-filled pox all over her body from the herpes the rumors say she carries. Nothing but death is good enough for that trollop.

  • Cam

    It was well documented years ago that she has Herpes. SO honestly, no wonder she thinks everybody has a sexually transmitted disease. She’s had at least one since she was 19 or so.

  • nineinchnail

    She’s sorry for getting caught. She is the Anita Bryant for the 21st century.

  • Gotjee

    HA, I’m just going to go ahead and say what none of you other hypocrites have the guts to say; that she has a fucking point, no matter how badly she worded herself. Self-censorship, shame, ignorance and general insouciance are now causing super-strains of Gonorrhea and Hep C to slay gay guys like AIDS used to, because promiscuity IS rampant and Grindr is the best place to go look for STD’s. get over yourselves and educate yourselves in the dangers of transmittable bugs before you go scooting your sphincter over the floor of a darkroom dungeon. And FYI, I’m not a troll, I’m a 26 year old gay guy and I’ve seen my fair share of stupidity concerning safety amongst every single one of my friends. And even being prudent, well educated in protection and personal hygiene, and having a very reasonable amount of sexual encounters in the last couple of years (at least compared to previously mentioned slutty friends), I STILL managed to catch two STD’s. The amount of carelessness in the gay community is simply staggering. So I’m actually glad she said it, even if she was one of the last people the general public should have heard utter those words.

  • Bellerophon69

    Yeah, I’ve done stupid shit in regards to being horny and having unprotected sex and we all know someone who takes way too many risks, but not all of us are mindless sluts who aren’t careful. Yeah, Paris is still a mindless “Valley Girl” who says lots of stupid teenage shit even though she’s a little long in the tooth and should know better.

  • Spike

    She feels horrible huh, wah wah wah. Maybe the dumb bitch should have thought about that before she said it. She doesn’t feel horrible about what she said, she feels horrible that it was caught on tape and has to own it.

  • viveutvivas

    If I just had the content of posts to go by, I would have to conclude that gays are horrible people. Frankly, I’m not sure she needs to apologize for anything. Just listen to yourselves, guys.

  • randalaw

    This twit knows a lot more about the heart of her bottom than about the bottom of her heart.

  • Eric Auerbach

    What are you all getting so angry about? Gay men ARE slutty. What’s with all the denial?



    well, i can’t see into the marble-lined negative space of her soul to make such a judgement.

    all i do know is that her c-nty remarks are hardly surprising given that she’s clearly parroting the views of the gay sycophants surrounding her, such as the oh-so-superior vile queen egging her on in the covert recording.

    let’s have more opprobrium for these self-hating and straight-pandering “patient zeros” of gay negative stereotype promoting c-ntery, whose attitudes ripple out into straight society and ultimately lend an ersatz “authenticity” to our detractor’s accusations.

  • Dwayne420

    Now that I’ve finally heard the WHOLE story and that she wasn’t talking about gays in general…I have no beef with what she said. Gay men in particular need to have more respect for themselves and get out of sleazy behavior. I’m gay and I honestly have no respect for gays that consume themselves with this type of behavior. I know I’ll probably get shredded for my statement…but how can we expect others to respect us if we can’t respect ourselves.

  • Dumdum

    @Eric Auerbach: A whore gets paid.Sluts are promiscuous.You crazy kids and your penises.So amusing yet so tiresome. :0 Yawn!What a snore-fest.

  • drek

    I don’t see anything wrong with what she said. Her gay friend probably agreed. Hook up sites and apps do contribute to the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. Grinder is sleazy, disgusting and embarrassing.

  • FunMe

    Let’s see … she insults the gays and then LIES and says she was only referring to the gays in Grinder.


    Whatever. This STUPID WHORE from now on is persona non grata. Any person who says something bad any minority group and then says “I was only kidding”, is LYING. Those are her true feelings about gays. If I was her, I would be afraid to go out. After all, her hair dressers are probably gay as well as the make up people and so many others. Go to a restaurant … I would not even trust the food if it was where gays work.

    “Hell hath no fury as a gay person insulted with ignorant comments”

  • FunMe

    And for those stupid people like Paris (maybe it’s her writing here) or those defending her (perhaps gays who simply hate themselves), here are her exact words which make it very clear she was referring to ALL gays:

    “Eeeww, 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.”

  • ChristopherM

    I’m not apologizing for saying she is a talentless disgusting herp monster.

  • Eric Auerbach


    If she’d only rephrased it a little bit, she’d have been right:

    “Dude, most men who contract HIV in the US are gay. I would be so scared if I was a gay guy.”

    So tone the melodrama down. B!tch may be dumb, but b!tch had a point. Given the outrage here, all I’m thinking is: Truth hurts.

  • Allen D.

    By all accounts, the cab driver edited the conversation.

    Guys ON GRINDR probably have AIDS. Well, considering they use a cell phone app to fuck people based solely on their geographical location – I wouldn’t be surprised. I’ve never known a classy guy to use that kind of bullshit app. It’s really quite disgusting. And that’s coming from a gay guy. So, agreed Paris. Agreed.

  • DivaSaid

    The real problem here is why a New York City cabdriver is recording private conversations?! I would hate to have every bitch rant I’ve been on with my gay boys recorded!!! Lol

  • mz.sam

    Who cares? Just another non-entity celeb skank, anyway!

  • jahpoy

    It doesn’t matter if she wrote it or not and if she meant it or not. The important thing there is, she’s sorry for what she said and made an apology.

  • Evji108

    Hey, we may not like her, or like to hear Paris say it, but we all know that Grindr is a body-fluid coated slut-fest and everyone may not have AIDs but she has a point. In any case, it was a PRIVATE conversation and even if we don’t like this airhead, she has the right to make candid comments in private to a good friend in a private place and in fact does not need to defend those comments because her privacy was violated. And indeed who gave some cabdriver the right to record private words spoken in his cab, what a sleazy A-hole. He is the the bad one here.

  • TheMarc

    Wish I had time to read the comments, but only had time for the story. Dan, with one paragraph you made me doubt any prior criticism I had of you. Great story and the last paragraph was the smartest thing I’ve read written by anyone about this story.

  • Dionte

    She was just trying to look out for her friend.

  • felaschiavo

    DONT GENERALIZE THE WHOLE GAY COMMUNITY… Whether is the gay community or the heterosexual male community the many men are just promiscuous whether is straight or gay. Men are men. In the straight community you see men fucking cunts in clubs in the club bathrooms, in closets, in the back of cars, in parks, in roofs, anywhere, everywhere. And they get STI’s just like anyone else… Why is it that one bad nasty seed in the gay community is always putting themselves down or saying that the gay community is promiscuous and we are nasty, and more promiscuous than straight men. This is bullshit… IF anyone goes to a straight club and the nasty shit that goes in there will make the gay community look like sweet caramel apples. Straight men are beyond promiscuous than the gay community. Men got cocks and they are horny all the time. Men are men. Lets not go taking all about the gay community because the straight heterosexual community is nasty.

  • BrokebackBob
