    Sometimes, saying sorry just won't do it.

    Paris Hilton has already apologized a gazillion times (OK, at least twice officially) for ranting that gay men are "disgusting" and "probably have AIDS" during a taxicab chat that had been secretly recorded.

    But the damage is far from done: Gay-focused channel Logo has now pulled a documentary about the hotel heiress that was scheduled to air, a rep for the network confirms to E! News.

    At least Paris has one person in her corner: Bret Easton Ellis

    Per the New York Post, the documentary, titled Paris Hilton Inc., was yanked from the channel's slate on Monday, and insiders tell the paper that Hilton's antigay remarks directly impacted the decision.

    The documentary, which was first released in 2007, focuses on the rabid culture of celebrity goosed up by the likes of Hilton, as well as the business ecosystem it fosters.

    On Sept. 7, the 31-year-old was secretly recorded chatting with two friends in a cab, during which she reportedly railed: "Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."

    Paris Hilton keeps apologizing for homophobic/AIDS remarks

    She's since issued an apology letter posted on GLAAD's website that praised gays as "the strongest and most inspiring people I know."

    Hilton's got at least one unlikely cheerleader: controversy-prone author Bret Easton Ellis, who tweeted, "I kind of agree with Paris Hilton," and noted that she "isn't that far off."
