Paris Hilton apologises to gay community for homophobic comments
London: Paris Hilton has issued an apology after an audio appeared online where she referred to homosexuals as “disgusting” and said that “most of them probably have AIDS.”
The millionaire heiress was unaware that her conversation about gays with a friend was being taped by a taxi driver.
Hilton admitted that she was “so sorry” for her comments that could have offended anyone.
“As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
“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.
“Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know. I hope that everyone can accept my apology and know that it is not who I am or how I feel in any way,” she said.
