Paris Hilton apologises for negative gay comments
Sep 21, 2012, 8:01 GMT
Paris Hilton is sorry 'from the bottom' of her heart of insulting gay people.
The 31-year-old socialite was recorded stating many gay men 'probably have AIDS' and saying they are 'disgusting' for being promiscuous to a friend in the back of a taxi, but she has now apologised for her words and insists they do not represent her true feelings towards the homosexual community.
In a statement on the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) website, she said: '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.'
She also proclaimed gay people to be among 'the most inspiring' individuals she knows because many have to overcome bullying.
Paris 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. Again, I am so sorry from the bottom of my heart and I feel absolutely horrible.'
