Honey Boo Boo’s Uncle Poodle comes out as HIV+

uncle.poodle“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 was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do…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.”

- Lee Thompson, also known as Uncle Poodle to Honey Boo Boo fans, in an interview with the Atlanta gay magazine Fenuxe.
