HIV-positive Muppet

Standard


This muppet was infected with AIDS. I shit you not. It’s an old story but many of you might not have caught wind of it.

Meet Kami, a Sesame Street character in the South Africa and Kenya versions of the children’s TV show.

Unfortunately, Kami had to get a transfusion and apparently, someone in the hospital screwed up big time because they gave her AIDS. Kami’s mom also died of AIDS… details on how she caught the disease are sketchy but the probability of two transfusion infection cases in the family seems unlikely. My money is on infected heroin needles or an irresponsible sex life.
