This former A list reality star who was the most hated celebrity for quite some time, had a new generation of people realize why.
The reality star has been scrubbing the internet of everything she can from her past, but was unable to get rid of the racist and homophobic things she has uttered in the past.
Now, she is having to apologize for them, even though she still believes it all.
Paris Hilton’s history of racist and homophobic remarks shouldn’t be forgotten
Perhaps the phrase we most associate with Paris Hilton. Beyond that, her name instantaneously calls to mind the classic ‘it-girl’, rich, blonde, party-girl, “famous for being famous” persona that she seemingly pioneered and worked to cultivate since she was a teenager.
But her documentary This is Paris works to complicate this narrative, showing her lounging around in sweatpants and hanging out with her dog. We also see her exploring the trauma she endured in “multiple” abusive relationships following alleged abuse at a boarding school as a teenager.
The documentary showed a glowing portrayal as Paris, as she thinks carefully about how the “character” she performs – as she called it – has affected young girls today, discussing her infamous “sex tape” and what it might have happened if it happen be released today. It was also clear that her allegations of abuse were credible and are highly sobering for the audience.
Paris has in the past been caught on camera multiple times saying the N-word, which seemingly have not persisted in our collective memory of Hilton (until Jezebel investigated and outlined the timeline of these videos here.)
Many of the videos have since been completely scrubbed from the internet, according to the Jezebel report. One that still remains shows Paris and her younger sister dancing to “Hypnotize” by Notorious B.I.G., and she says to the camera: “We’re like two N-words!”
Later in the clip, she seems to refers to some else at the party as a “f***in’ hoodlum broke, poor b*tch from, like, Compton. Public school bitch!” She then refers to a male friend she’s with as a “f*****”.
In 2012, Paris had to apologise for saying gay men were “disgusting” and “probably had AIDS.” She was caught on tape after a friend showed her the app Grindr:
“Ewww! Gay guys 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.” – Source
