Lee Daniels: “I Tried To Catch AIDS”

Published: Thursday 6th Apr 2017 by David

The adept creative Lee Daniels has lifted the lid on his dark and difficult past.

Why he wanted to contract the acquired immune deficiency syndrome?

Find out below…

During a speech given at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film and TV he revealed that his painful childhood and the loss of a number of friends drove him to danger.

It [AIDS] wiped away all of my friends. I had no friends… it was terrifying, because we never knew whether you could drink from glasses or what it was. It was the most terrifying thing ever. I didn’t understand why it was that I wasn’t [dead], because there were far better souls than me that we’re [dying]. I thought that I needed to go. And so I descended into drugs and into sexual bathhouses to die.

He added:

That I don’t have AIDS is a miracle from God. I really don’t understand it, because I should have had HIV. Everybody else did.

His admission comes after a recent study revealed that approximately 36 million people around the world are living with the disease.

    I’ve been saying that Lee Daniels is unbalanced. The entertainment world needs to stop treating this loon like he’s gold. His world isn’t even good.

    Omg! You have got to stop putting things in quotes when you’re paraphrasing people. It’s bad journalism. I know you aren’t technically journalists, but he literally never said “I tried to catch A***”. You do this all the time and it needs to stop.

    • Reading Comprehension April 6, 2017

      Have you heard of reading comprehension? He spoke about wondering why he didn’t have a*** and that he went into sexual bathhouses to die. The key words in that sentence are a***, sexual and die. To catch a*** one must be sexual (as it is a sexually transmitted disease) and once caught it means you can die. THAT is how he said he wanted to catch a*** without having to say “I wanted to catch a***.” Dunce.

        that is all true, but that doesn’t mean the use of quotation marks is correct. paraphrasing is not a quote. end of story.

      • Dustin April 6, 2017

        YEAH this isn’t a reason a reading comprehension issue. If it’s not a direct quote, it doesn’t belong in quotes. Nice try though. 😉

      • like whaaa April 6, 2017

        lol what? You can’t make up a quote because it sounded like he said that… Omg lord help us. Such passion in what you wrote yet, so wrong

  10. Stanning Is Messy April 6, 2017

    But where did he say he tried to catch it? You put “I tried to catch A***” as a quote in the headline but in the extract of what he said it’s not there…?

    • Pepe Longstocking April 6, 2017

      You really can’t see where he said that in the quote? Where did you go to school?

      • Stanning Is Messy April 6, 2017

        My point is that the quotation marks are unnecessary as it wasn’t even a quote

  11. Paulo April 6, 2017

    Back on topic….. wtf why would anybody say something like that

  12. Navy Gravy April 6, 2017

    What he should have said was he descended into drugs and sexual bathhouses FOR PLEASURE. This is so thirsty. If you really wanna die go jump off a building drive a knife into your throat but who says they tried to catch A I D S? He’s so pathetic

    The gay community is seriously fuked up mentally.
