Bret Easton Ellis on Paris Hilton Gay Comments: I Kind of Agree!

by at . Comments

Ho-tel heiress Paris Hilton has taken flak from plenty of people over her recent comments on horny, disgusting gay men who probably have AIDS and are totally gross.

Bret Easton Ellis is not one of those people.

Ellis, who recently referred to Glee as a puddle of HIV and said Matt Bomer shouldn't star in the 50 Shades of Grey movie because he's gay, is weighing in on Paris' off-color remarks.

"I kind of agree with Paris Hilton," the American Psycho author.

He also name-checked Grindr, the online hookup site that figured prominently in the hotel heiress' anti-gay rant - a conversation with a gay male friend recorded secretly by a cab driver.

"As someone who has used Grindr, Paris Hilton isn't that far off," wrote Ellis.

In the wake of the backlash, Hilton issued an apology letter posted on GLAAD's website, saying, "I am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families."

"Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know."

Her publicist also continued Hilton's mea culpa tour, telling E! Paris meant "to express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life threatening disease."

While it's ridiculous that Paris, or anyone, is secretly recorded in a cab ... it's also ridiculous to say this in just about any context. Take another listen below:

Paris Hilton Quotes
