According to TMZ, she added: "Most of them probably have AIDS... I would be so scared if I was a gay guy... you'll like die of AIDS."

The full statement from Hilton's representative read: "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.

"The conversation became heated after a close gay friend told her, in a cab ride, a story about a gay man who has AIDS and is knowingly having unprotected sex.

"He also discussed a website that encourages random sex by gay men with strangers."

It continued: "As she was being shown the website her comments were in reference to those people promoting themselves on the site. The cab driver who recorded this, only provided a portion of the conversation.

"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."
