Remember how last year everyone was reminded of Paris Hilton’s bigotry when stories of her racism were used to promote a former associate’s book? Author Neil Strauss shared anecdotes of teenage Hilton discussing Vin Diesel. She reportedly said at the time: ”We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and I saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross.” Asked by Strauss “How black does a guy have to be?” Hilton replied, “One percent is enough for me.” Hilton’s rep issued a non-denial at the time. Somehow forgetting that there’s video on which Hilton knows she’s being filmed and she drops the n-word every few minutes.
She’s over 30 now, no longer a teenager, and she’s still a bigot. This time, Hilton was recorded on audio by a cab driver as the heiress and a gay male friend discussed the gay hook-up app Grindr.
The heiress was in Manhattan for New York Fashion Week and in the early morning hours of Friday, September 7, Paris remarks were caught on tape by a cab driver, when her [friend], who is an openly gay male model, is heard in the audio clip describing Grindr, an app that gay men use to locate other gay men for hookups.
The male friend says: “Say I log into Grindr, someone that’s on Grindr can be in that building and it tells you all the locations of where they are and you can be like, ‘Yo, you wanna f**k?’ and he might be on like, the sixth floor,” the [friend] says.
“Ewww. Eww. To get f**ked? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world,” Paris is heard saying in the exclusive audio in response. “They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
The driver who recorded the conversation told Radar: “I couldn’t believe what was coming out of Paris’ mouth and the way she was talking about gay men.”
Nearly halfway into the 50-second clip, Paris is heard saying she’d be afraid to be a gay man and again throws the AIDS card into the mix.
“I would be so scared if I were a gay guy,” Paris says. “You’ll like, die of AIDS.” - via RadarOnline.
So, according to Hilton, Black guys are “gross” and gay guys are “disgusting.” That’s her go-to bigot synonym. She needs educating on the issues and a bigger vocabulary.
Her rep responded to this in the usual rote manner, dismissing her homophobia as a PSA: “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.”
