Furious anger erupted when a YouTube video of Paris Hilton and her sister Nicky dancing to Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize" circulated online; in the clip, Paris is heard exclaiming, "We're like two n****rs."

When Hilton failed to apologize for her language, her publicist, Eliot Mintz, came to her defense. "Each of us has used words we have regretted later," said Mintz. "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."
