Hilton: `Drunken Elephant Story Was Made Up'

LATEST: PARIS HILTON has personally distanced herself from ridiculous stories she has been looking out for drunk elephants. British tabloid the Daily Star quoted the socialite when she reportedly spoke out about a little-known elephant problem in India during a recent promotional visit to Asia. The publication claimed Hilton was spearheading a campaign to stop a herd of elephants killing themselves - after bingeing on alcohol. In the story, which ran earlier this month (Nov07), the hotel heiress was quoted as saying she was horrified to discover 40 of the animals were electrocuted after drinking rice-beer, which is brewed by locals in north-east India. She reportedly said, "There would have been more casualties if the villagers hadn't chased them away. And four elephants died in a similar way three years ago. It is just so sad." But now Hilton is speaking out about the story, insisting the quotes were made up and she has no knowlegde of drunk elephants. Appearing on Wednesday's (28Nov07) Ellen show in America, she chuckled, "I read that and I was like, `How would an elephant get alcohol in the first place? Why would I talk about that? Why would I care if an elephant got drunk? Can an elephant get drunk?' I've never talked about that in my life. I didn't even know an elephant could get drunk." Hilton insists the story, which became an international scoop, is just the latest in a long line of stories made up about her. She adds, "They always put words in my mouth all over the press all the time. "I just laugh at them now. It's literally comedy every morning; we wake up reading these stories... My friends will send them on a BlackBerry to me and we'll just laugh."
