(AP) Former NBA star Magic Johnson wasn’t too happy this weekend when allegations of him faking his HIV/AIDS infection became public on a Los Angeles radio show. Check out the transcript below courtesy of

“Magic faked AIDS,” Perry said.

“You think Magic faked AIDS for sympathy?” Baker replied.

“I’m convinced that Magic faked AIDS,” Perry said.

“Yeah, me too,” Baker said.

“I’m not sure why,” Perry added. “But I’m pretty sure he faked AIDS. Because he’s the only cured AIDS guy ever.”

That exchange Wednesday prompted a response statement from Johnson, 49, on Friday that was reported by the Los Angeles Times.

“I am extremely disappointed in KTLK in Minneapolis,” Johnson said. “I am outraged that Chris Baker and Langdon Perry would minimize such a serious and deadly issue.

“Millions are dying from HIV/AIDS and the fact that they would make jokes about my status is unbelievable.

“Chris, Langdon and KTLK should use their power in a more positive light by encouraging people to get tested for this disease instead of making up such ridiculous lies.”

Ok..of course I don’t think Magic faked his disease…but he is filthy rich which means he has the money to get the treatment others can’t afford. Hey…don’t act like if you didn’t have it you wouldn’t get the treatment either. Ignorant comments though.
