Logo Drops Paris Hilton From Schedule in Wake of Offensive Comments
The gay-interest cable network replaced a documentary about the hotel heiress after her remarks that "most [gay men] probably have AIDS" were released online.
An airing of Paris Hilton Inc., a 2007 documentary about Paris Hilton's various business pursuits, has been yanked from the Logo schedule after a recording surfaced in which Hilton can be heard saying that gay men are "disgusting" and "most of them probably have AIDS."
The New York Post cites network sources who confirm the move was made because of Hilton's comments, despite an apology from Hilton submitted to GLAAD in which she clarified that "gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know."
The comments were secretly recorded by a cab driver who was shuttling the hotel heiress and reality star between Fashion Week parties in New York, who then sold them to Radar Online.
“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.”
Paris Hilton Inc. was replaced by The Antics Road Show and Pretty Boys on the schedule.
