In unsurprising news, Logo, the gay-interest cable channel, has pulled a documentary about Paris Hilton off its broadcast schedule.
The network intended to air Paris Hilton, Inc., a 2007 film that profile her various business interests, but pulled it after she said that gay men are "disgusting" and "most of them probably have AIDS."
Hilton has apologized to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, saying, “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.
“As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community," she continued. "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,” Hilton said. “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.”
I wish people would not apologize for things they are not sorry about. Her comments, which were recorded secretly by a cab driver in New York City, were that “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world,” she said to a friend, who was using the mobile hook-up app Grindr at the time. “They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
