While speaking to fans inside a store in Bogotá, Natalia Paris — Colombia's best known model, according to her website — was caught on camera claiming that chickens injected with female hormones were turning children gay.

"The boys that are eating [that kind of] chicken, because they are injecting female hormones, are starting to turn into homosexuals," the controversial animal rights activist could be heard saying.

The comments drew immediate criticism, with many taking to Paris's Facebook page to express their disgust.

The National Federation for Colombian Poultry Farmers put out an official statement calling Paris's remarks outrageous, and referring to her claim that chickens are injected with hormones to accelerate their growth an "urban myth."

Sadly, Paris is far from alone in her belief that hormonal chickens lead to homosexual kids.

Three years ago, Bolivian President Evo Morales made the exact same claim while speaking at a climate change conference.

Comunidad Homosexual Argentina president Cesar Cigliutti blasted Morales's "absurd" assertion, adding that "by following that reasoning, if we put male hormones in a chicken and we make a homosexual eat it he will transform into a heterosexual."
