Damage control is going into overtime at the Paris Hilton camp today as she released a statement to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD).

Yesterday’s revelations from Radaronline.com revealed a recorded slam by the reality star heiress saying gay men were “disgusting” and “probably had AIDS”, when the friend she was sharing a cab with showed her the gay dating App Grindr.

Paris said in her statement:

“I am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families,” Hilton said in part of a lengthy apology she released to the the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD.) “Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know.”

Hilton’s publicist, in a statement sent to CNN Thursday, confirmed the recording was authentic but said,

“It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gays.”

“Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation,” the statement said.

Hilton said the tape captured a conversation that was supposed to be private.

“I was having this private conversation with a friend of mine who is gay and our conversation was in no way towards the entire gay community,” her statement said. “It is the last thing that I would ever want to do and I cannot put into words how much I wish I could take back every word.”
