Or at least according to Paris Hilton’s rep it is. After a tape of Hilton spouting the “n” word hit the internet, Hilton’s flack was actually incapable of coming up with a good excuse for their client’s stupidity. When asked by Page Six if she had a comment concerning the controversy, the socialite’s rep claimed Hilton used the word because she was young, drunk, and it was New Year’s Eve, which is apparently the time of the year when it’s ok to say horrendous things.
“I’m not going to make any attempt to spin this. It happened. I’m not going to deny it happened,” Hilton’s hard-working publicist, Elliot Mintz, told Page Six.
“Each of us has used words we have regretted later. This was six years ago. She was 20 at the time. It was New Year’s Eve. She had been obviously drinking. She sincerely regrets using those words. She is not a racist or an anti-Semite.”
The tape also featured Hilton calling Todd Meister a “faggot,” and an unidentified woman a “jappy Jew.” Maybe it’s all that herpes medication she’s taking that makes her talk like an asshole?
