Paris Hilton has come under fire for remarks she made in a New York City cab earlier this month. As Thomas Bistritz reported on Thursday when Paris was introduced to Grindr, an app used by gay menn to meet other gay men, the woman who became famous over a sex tape made some pretty harsh statements about gay men.
Hilton’s comments were recorded by the cab driver, and Radaronline released the audio file. In the recording, Paris can be heard saying gay men are “disgusting” and that “most of them probably have AIDS” among other judgmental remarks.
Her rep says the comments were taken out of context, and while that might be true… Ms. Hilton should be disgusted with herself! Do I believe that Paris Hilton believes all gay men are “disgusting” or infected with AIDS? No, I do not. I believe she probably was referring to those she saw using Grindr to find a hook up. Still, I don’t think that justifies her comments.
This judgemental outburst comes from a woman whose nasty vagina was viewed by millions of viewers as she allowed a man to record them having intercourse. If anyone is an expert on what is disgsting, it is someone who participates in such an activity. However, Ms. Hilton should also know what it feels like to be judged and ridiculed. She should, therefore, know better than to pass judgement on others.
Furthermore, if anyone has stood behind Paris in her time indescretion, it was the gay community. And everyone knows, you have to watch what you say in public. Otherwise it is subject to public scrutiny. So, I have no pity for Paris in regards to the fact that her conversation was recorded.
I don’t use Grindr, as I don’t need to; however it hurt my feelings to listen to those remarks bleed from her mouth. Then I was quickly reminded who it was that I heard talking. They say those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I think that statement applies to those who have souls. The remarks that Ms. Hilton made implies that she does not fit into that classification.
