Lee Thompson aka Uncle Poodle on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has just come out as HIV positive. He has been adamant about regular testing and in May his test came back positive. Lee said, “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 was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do.” His ex is now serving a five-year prison sentence for knowingly infecting Lee with HIV. “I would have been cool with his HIV status if he had been honest,” he said. “I don’t have an issue with the disease. I would have known how to protect myself.” Truer words have not been spoken.
