Author Bret Easton Ellis has messaged
on Twitter that he “kind of agree[s]” with Paris Hilton on Grindr
Hilton has apologized for calling gay
men on Grindr “disgusting” and likely to have AIDS in a secretly
recorded conversation with a gay male friend.
“Gays are the horniest people in the
world,” Hilton said. “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.”
Hilton apologized the following day
after the recording was made public, saying she wished she “could
take back every word.”
“Gay people are the strongest and
most inspiring people I know,” she added.
The 48-year-old Ellis, who burst on the
literary scene at age 21 with the controversial 1985 bestseller Less
Than Zero, on Saturday tweeted to his more than 342,000
followers: “I kind of agree with Paris Hilton. As someone who has
used Grindr? Paris Hilton isn't that far off.”
