    “I Can’t Stand Black Guys, I Would Never Touch One”: When Paris Hilton Was Openly Racist And Claimed She Finds Black Men ‘Gross’

    Hollywood is one big anomaly of big names making bad comments and then being sorry for them. The list of celebrities who needed cancel culture to finally wake up from their deep-rooted racism is pretty long but we’ll start with heiress Paris Hilton

    The 43-year-old Hilton gained her title of Heiress by being the granddaughter of hotelier Conrad Hilton. But the ‘The Simple Life’ star has many a time confirmed that she has no claim whatsoever on the Hilton fortune. The heiress has made one for herself with numbers going as high as 300$.

    Remember a time when celebrities were openly racist? Let us remind you of this one time back in 2011 when entertainment journalist Neil Strauss revealed Hilton Heiress’s real thoughts on race in his book. The ‘Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madnesshad a pretty controversial quote by the diva. Strauss revealed that parts of the interview published in this book took place in 1999. 

    Among the many topics the duo discussed, Hilton’s recent love affair brought out her darker thoughts (Pun intended). Neil quoted Paris saying, “We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and I saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross.”

    Then when the journalist asked the New Yorker, “How black does a guy have to be?’ She had the guts to say, ‘One percent is enough for me.’

    Paris’s representative tried their best to press control the situation by denying the allegations and threatening to involve the law. It all went to vain in the end when the heiress herself addressed the controversy in her 2023 autobiography, ‘Paris: The Memoir’. 

    The mother of one did not attempt to defend the racist allegations made towards her but she did apologize. Since the days of her early fame, the star has been subjected to public scrutiny. Getting that much attention in the teenage years at times does more bad to one’s mental health than good. To top it all she was put into residential treatment centres for 11 months. The author claimed to be mentally, physically and sexually abused at those facilities which resulted in “a severely damaged filter.”

    In the memoir, the heiress confessed “Sometimes I was just wasted and being a f***ing moron. I don’t remember half the stuff people say I said when I was being a blacked-out idiot, but I’m not denying it.”
