8Paris Hilton Is Super Sorry About That Whole AIDS Thing

“That whole AIDS thing,” for those of us experiencing minor memory loss, refers to that thing that Paris Hilton was recorded saying about gay men. Specifically, this:

“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 were a gay guy. You’ll like, die of AIDS.”

The recording of Paris’ conversation was released yesterday, and a few hours later, her rep released a statement explaining that we all just took it the wrong way because we don’t understand the complex way in which Paris Hilton’s mind works or her superior communication skills. But, obviously, no one really bought that, and so Paris had to go and make her very own statement that was published on the GLAAD site:

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.

Love you too, betch!

Except no. I’m not saying that I’ve never said anything stupid or hurtful to anyone before, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never said anything so derogatory about an entire group of people because, you know, that’s kind of an asshole thing to do. I could even harp on how I don’t really like how Paris said that “gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know,” because again, that’s generalizing a whole group of people – gay people can be wonderful and strong and inspiring, and they can be total assholes, and they can be smart and dumb and creative and dull and promiscuous and prudish and every other descriptor in the world, because they’re people, too – but I don’t want to be That Girl. Except I guess I just kind of was.

Basically, Paris Hilton has a dumb mouth, and I really wish people wouldn’t record it and then put it on the internet so that I can avoid hearing it.

    I’m sick of people having to apologize for being an asshole, or un-PC, or whatever.
    If she ACTUALLY has gay friends and she apologized to them, or if they don’t care, or if they know she isn’t really like that, then that’s what matters… not an entire community. Fuck the PC police; if you’re an asshole, be an asshole. Just don’t expect everyone to want to hang around you…
