The website fenuxe.com reports that Honey Boo Boo's gay Uncle Poodle (Lee Thompson) last year learned he is HIV positive, and that his boyfriend went to jail for lying about his own HIV status and infecting him.
Thompson tells fenuxe reporter Dino Thompson-Sarmiento:
"He is serving a 5-year sentence. 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."
