Paris Hilton made some pretty strong statements about gay men in a recent taxi ride in New York, and it was all caught on tape.
TMZ reveals that during a Sept. 7 cab ride Paris was having a conversation with a gay friend about Grindr, a popular social web site that gay men sometimes use to find sexual partners. During the conversation Paris stated "Ewwww ... gay guys are the horniest people in the world. Most of them probably have AIDS ... I would be so scared if I was a gay guy ... you'll like die of AIDS."
Paris' rep issued a statement about the conversation, saying "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 statement continued, "The conversation became heated, after a close gay friend 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."
This isn't the first time Paris has been under fire for shocking comments she's made. In 2011 pop culture journalist Neil Strauss claims that Paris said "I can't stand black guys. I would never touch one. It's gross," at a party in 1999. He published the statement in his book, "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madness," but Hilton's rep denied she ever said anything like that.
