What did Paris Hilton say to upset the gay community?
Paris Hilton has angered the gay community after claiming gay men are "disgusting" and "probably have Aids".
She was secretly recorded in the back of a taxi cab in New York 2 weeks ago, talking with a gay friend.
During the chat – her gay friend brought up the gay mobile app grindr, which gay guys use to meet other gay guys.
Paris is then heard saying: "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 was a gay guy ... you'll like die of Aids."
A spokesperson for Hilton insists she is not a homophobe, and was merely condemning unsafe sex.
"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."
