She then proceeded to read the entirety of Silverman's apologies aloud to her audience, later clarifying that she had neither expected nor requested an apology. Paris linked her sister Nicky Hilton's passionate 'demand' for an apology from Silverman to her just 'being really over protective.'

Silverman acknowledged that she felt bad about the jokes at the time, but not years later. "Here I am, 14 years back, saying to you that I am very sorry, Paris Hilton. I was then, and I am now, far more fully and with much greater awareness, I think."
