That's not hot, Paris Hilton.

In a shocking audio clip on RadarOnline, the socialite, 31, was recorded chatting in an NYC taxi cab last week about Grindr, a popular smartphone app used by gay men to meet, date and sometimes hook up.

After a pal explained how the GPS-enabled app worked, an appalled Hilton replied: "Ewww. Ewww. To get f***ed? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They're disgusting."

Continued the aspiring singer, DJ, perfume purveyor and former reality star: "Dude, most of them probably have AIDS . . I would be so cared if I was a gay guy. You'll like, die of AIDS."

But a rep for Hilton claims to Us Weekly that the offensive tirade was taken out of context.

"Paris Hilon'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," the rep tells Us in a statement about the Grindr discussion.

"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."
