During the interview for Anderson’s “AC360,” Donald berated former NBA player Magic Johnson for sleeping around with different women, contracting HIV back in 1991.
“He acts so holy. I mean he made love to every girl in every city in America and he had AIDS. And when he had those AIDS, I went to my synagogue and I prayed for him. I didn’t criticize him. I could have. Is he an example for children?”
Donald then went on to chastise Magic over contracting HIV and (what he believes) lack of helping people of his own race. He said,
“What has he done? Can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done? He’s got AIDS. Has he helped anybody in south L.A.? What kind of a guy goes to every city have sex with every girl and catches HIV. Is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself! I think he should go into the background. What does he do for the black people? Doesn’t do anything. He does NOTHING. He’s all talk”
