Talk about making a dramatic U-turn!
After being caught on tape declaring thatÂ gay men â€śare the horniest people in the worldâ€ť and â€śmost of them probably have AIDSâ€ť, Paris Hilton is singing a decidedly different tune.
The airhead has released an apology toÂ GLAAD, where she insistsÂ â€śgay people are the strongest and most inspiring peopleâ€ť she knows.
â€śI am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families with the comments heard this morning,â€ť she said.
The 31-year-old explained she was having a â€śprivate conversationâ€ť with a gay friend, and understands that straight people can get also get HIV and AIDS.
â€śIt is so wrong when people bully down others for being gay. No one should have to go through that. Again, I am so sorry from the bottom of my heart and I feel absolutely horrible.â€ť
