After a predictably deep conversation with a gay male model friend in which she called gays “disgusting” and said “most of them probably have AIDS,” was released to the press, Paris Hilton would like the whole gay world to know that she’s very, very sorry.
Everyone’s former favorite celebrity socialite took to the internet, posting the following to her Twitter account just last night, along with a link to the full apology she sent to GLAAD:
“I want to say how sorry I am. I can’t fit the whole apology about the cab recording here, so please read it at @GLAAD”
But does the internet, arbiter of all things tawdry and graceless, accept Paris’s apology? After Grindr tweeted a not so subtle accusation about Hilton and her ex boyfriend, we wanted to see what others had to say.
Gawker doesn’t seem to think you were paying that much attention, anyway. They responded:
“There. Now you can go back to forgetting about her (until her new album comes out, that is!).”
Meanwhile, Queerty asks that we not pity Hilton, writing:
“She’s just a spoiled-rich rapidly aging socialite who says something stupid every time she opens her mouth. She’s not really the enemy. She’s just a douche.”
The Superficial also urges us to look at the facts:
“Just when Paris Hilton was a lock for the 2016 GOP ticket by being racist and thinking every homosexual has AIDS, she capitulated yesterday to the gay mafia who probably held her Valtrex scripts hostage…”
And Towleroad is convinced. Or maybe not:
She loves you. At least while she’s in front of the camera muzzled by a piece of ‘NoH8′ duct tape.
If these reactions are any indication, it looks like we have our answer. So sorry, Paris, but the internet does not accept your apology and banishes you to a lifetime of feeling past your prime and of looking back on your glory days—as you sip cocktails on a yacht in St. Tropez—feeling wistful and skinny and rich.
Well, nevermind. Some people will never learn.
