Bosses of gay-focused U.S. TV network Logo have shelved a documentary about Paris Hilton following the star's controversial comments about AIDS.

The socialite was recorded discussing homosexuals, HIV, and gay social networking website Grindr with a friend during a cab journey in New York earlier this month.

During the conversation, Hilton was heard saying, "Gay guys are the horniest people in the word... Most of them probably have AIDS... I would be so scared if I was a gay guy... you'll, like, die of AIDS."

She issued a grovelling apology after the comments were made public, but the move didn't stop chiefs at the Logo channel pulling 2007 show, Paris Hilton, Inc., which was set to air in the U.S. twice this week.

A representative for the channel says the documentary "has been removed from the schedule."
