SMH @ trying to treat syphilization with Carmex!
On Whether He Intentionally Infected His Co-Stars With Syphilis
“I did not go out there and try to f***ing intentionally get anybody infected. From my heart man, up to God, I thought it was something that was just a skin rash. I went out and bought some damn Carmex lotion (it’s an everyday hydrating lotion), I put it on [my schlong] and I thought it made it look better. That coupled with things going on with my hands, little brown spots or whatever, I looked things up on the internet and I’m telling you, only thing that came up was a vitamin deficiency and that I need more vitamins. I went out and bought vitamins and Carmex.
Syphilis is called the great imitator it supposedly looks like other diseases, problems, symptoms and it’s never related to just a std. 20 years in this business and only STD’s I was aware of is gonorrhea and chlamydia.
You gotta understand that when I worked with that girl I had a FRESH test. NOTHING came back saying, hey you need to go to the doctor, get a checkup, a shot, not a single damn thing. I used the lotion and it made it look better.”
On Wishing He Handled The Situation Differently
“In hindsight, I wish I did it way differently but I DID NOT KNOW and I wanna make that very clear. By the time my doctor’s appointment came around, back on July 11th or so, he was like ‘your symptoms look like it could be syphilis.’ First time I ever heard that word. The doctor said it’s easy, it’s a simple fix (shot in the rear), a simple bacteria, look it up, syphilis is non contagious 24 hours after that shot. The medicines worked because not a single person I worked with before, during, or after that shoot was infected and that’s the truth, that’s the bottom f***ing line.”
On How His Life Has Changed Since The Syphilis News Broke
“I’ve lost a lot. I’ve struggled because of this. I just had to go to court, to jail and been on the front page news. I paid the price. I wasn’t trying to f*** anybody over. I went and got the shot and did exactly what the doctor told me to do. I even waited 11 days (before having sex).
It’s unfortunate I went through this s**t, it’s part of being in the adult film industry. STD’s DO happen. It happens. People catch STD’s often. You know what the difference is? They get privacy. They go through it in a private matter and nobody has to know, they go get it treated and come back and get re-tested.”
On People Learning From His Mistakes
“The most important thing if you’re a young man/sister having sex, go get tested, look for things, go to your doctor, do it regularly especially, if you’re promiscuous. If you really ain’t sure throw on a condom and you won’t have to go through what I’m going through. I hope all this s**t is for a reason and people learn a lesson from it. A lot of people don’t know, get embarrassed and feel ashamed because they have a STD, that’s what makes people hide it because people make ’em feel like s**t if you test positive and especially if you’re promiscuous.”
Do you think that Mr. Marcus should be forgiven by the public since he’s taken responsibility for what happened? Maybe Foxy Brown should speak up on his behalf?
