The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan isn't just all fun and games after all.
He tells the mag:
"I was adamant about getting my HIV status checked on a regular basis. On March 16, 2012, I tested negative. Then, in May of 2012, my test results came back positive. I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me. I later learned he had been HIV-positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it.
I would have been cool with his HIV status if he had been honest. I don't have an issue with the disease. I would have known how to protect myself."
As for people who don't protect themselves, he says candidly that they are "damn fools."
He also said:
"They are playing Russian roulette; they are playing with their lives and that of their sexual partners."
We definitely agree and we're glad that Uncle Poodle is finding a way to make this a positive learning experience by being open and informative for his peers. His ex-boyfriend is currently serving a 5-year sentence for the crime.
