Did Paris Hilton Call Black Guys "Gross"?

Published March 23, 2011

Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton may have some explaining to do.

The L.A. Times reports the socialite once commented to a pop culture journalist that she "can't stand black guys" and "I would never touch one. It's gross."

Her controversial comments reportedly appear in Neil Strauss' upcoming book "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madness."    

Strauss claims Hilton said these things while he was partying with her back in 1999.

He says at some point she pointed out an actor who had appeared in the movie "Saving Private Ryan" and said, "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."

When Strauss reportedly asked Hilton "How black does a guy have to be?" he says she responded,"One percent is enough for me."

Hilton has a reality show debuting on Oxygen this summer. It's called "The World According to Paris." She has not yet responded to the allegations.
