Wow, Burt Reynolds coldly says Charlie Sheen is “getting what he deserves”, in regards to Sheen's HIV diagnosis.
Reynolds—who has presumably bedded lots of people without protection—seems to think people who bed people without protection deserve HIV. Interestingly, Reynolds was once the subject of AIDS gossip when he was ill and in seclusion in Florida.
Seems like he's been away from the public eye for so long he's still talking like he was when Stroker Ace came out.
Cue sanctimonious gay people responding to this story supporting Reynolds.

Jenny McCarthy is stupid. We know this. We know this because of her cockamamie conspiracy-theory beliefs regarding the cause autism (which is not caused by vaccinations) and her son's own diagnosis (he was never autistic), but we have further proof in light of her reaction to Charlie Sheen coming out as HIV positive.
Earlier, McCarthy spewed on her SiriusXM radio show (are you Sirius that this dim-witted con artist has a show?):
“I don't even know how to feel about that. I'm like, 'Wait a second. If I have to be upfront about a herpe [sic], how could you not be upfront about HIV?'
“I look back and I'm like, 'Okay, that would have been some valuable information.' Look how many people have played his love interest on the show. I mean, not that you can obviously get it through kissing, but still, that's a big deal.”
Now, to clarify things, she has muddied the HIV-infected waters even more, claiming she totally knows HIV isn't spread by kissing, and yet insisting on conflating it with herpes and other, more easily communicable diseases:
Expanding on my Charlie Sheen actor/actress disclosure statement..... pic.twitter.com/DGlvLdXHc8— Jenny McCarthy (@JennyMcCarthy) November 19, 2015
So McCarthy seems to—via a faux-feminist line of logic—suggest that an actor should have to disclose his HIV status if he's going to be in close contact with other actors. Why stop there? Mandatory status disclosure at the supermarket! After all, someone could, well, something could, well, it's a big deal.
I don't like Charlie Sheen. I think he's a bad person and I don't think he's behaving particularly heroically by coming out as POZ, so much as he is taking good advice to get ahead of an unflattering story (regarding whether or not he disclosed his status to people before having sex with them) and painting himself as sympathetically as possible. He has been abusive to people many times over and his gross meltdown—which so many people cheered on with glee—was nothing of which to be proud. And now he's looking for sympathy because he has squandered over $100 million on drugs and sex and paying off admittedly unscrupulous confidantes.
Regardless, neither he nor anyone else should have to give one moment's thought to idiots like Jenny McCarthy. Sheen has at least introduced the concept of being undetectable to the country (which seems mired in '80s and '90s-era understanding of HIV), whereas McCarthy is trying to take us back to fight the battles Ryan White fought.
She's an embarrassment.
