(Newser) – Steel your stomachs, Paris Hilton has again been caught on tape. This time, a cab driver caught the socialite making some pretty inflammatory remarks about gay men earlier this month—though her people are valiantly attempting to spin it as the socialite simply showing her concern about serious health risks, TMZ reports. While discussing Grindr—a website some gay men reportedly use in a quest for casual sex—with another passenger in the cab, Hilton says: " Ewwww … 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."

In a statement, Hilton's rep says the celebutante was actually talking with "a close gay friend," and this friend told her "a story about a gay man who has AIDS and is knowingly having unprotected sex." That's when the conversation got intense, and Paris was simply trying to "express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life-threatening disease," the rep says. "Her comments were in reference to those people promoting themselves on the site. The cab driver who recorded this only provided a portion of the conversation. It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gays."

I think it's aweful to have a website that you can go to that will give you the address of someone you can go immediately to and fuck someone that you don't even know them and don't know their sexual history. That's playing russian roulette with STD's.
