Movie Stars and Gossip
PARIS HILTON has officially issued an apology for her controversial homophobic rant, according to the latest Hollywood gossip.
The hotel heiress and sex tape star recently made some awful comments about gay men in a secretly recorded rant during a conversation with a gay friend that included statements such as Gay guys are the horniest people in the world” and “They’re disgusting” and “most of them probably have AIDS.”
After the secretly recorded rant found its way to the Internet, Paris came under fire for the incredibly offensive and homophobic nature of her comments towards gay men.
So, to appease the public, Paris issued an apology on the website of GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation):
“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.”
She then added:
“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.”
And finally, Paris concluded her heartfelt (?) apology with the following:
“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.”
Do you forgive Paris?
