paris-hilton.jpgA New York City taxi cab driver recorded Paris "That's hot" Hilton as she made homophobic statements while riding as a passenger with a friend. Hilton's hateful comments were in response to the app, Grindr, a location-based dating service for the gay community, that according to her partner in transportation, encourages casual sex.

In the 50-second audio clip, Hilton was recorded saying: "They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS ... I would be so scared if I were a gay guy. You'll like, die of AIDS." The clip (Editor's note: Please note that this clip contains derogatory statements) has been on RadarOnline and includes a statement from the cab driver.

In response to the leak, Hilton's rep issued the following statement: "Paris Hilton's comments were to express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life threatening disease."
