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."
