The Sun (London), April 22, 2008
A SERIES of sickening videos have been posted on the internet showing a man who claims to have deliberately “infected” thousands of women with AIDS.
Calling himself ‘Trashman’ and speaking with an American accent, the masked man says he has infected between 1200 and 1500 unknowing victims with the devastating disease.
He can be seen reading the names and ages of some of the women he claims to have had unprotected sex with in the video clips on website YouTube.
The videos—one of which has been viewed 195,000 times—also feature a web address to a “gangsta” portal filled with pornography and where Trashman has a profile.
In the first video Trashman is filmed reading from a list of women he claims to have infected.
He gloats: “Today I’m doing a show about something that’s more important than killing rappers.
“This here (piece of paper) that I hold in my hand is a list of women who I actually infected with AIDS on purpose.
“So if I call your name and if you just happen to be on my ‘I got the AIDS from that n***er’ list’, then God bless you.”
He then goes on to name several women and their ages.
President of People Living with HIV/AIDS, Brett Hayhoe, said the man “does seem genuine” in the video clips.
He blasted: “It’s extremely disturbing (and) the guy needs psychiatric help.”
AIDS can only be contracted once a person has been infected with HIV, but Mr Hayhoe said the man may have lumped the two together.
Mr Hayhoe said if Trashman was telling the truth, it would be “absolutely devastating” for anyone who has had sex with him.
He added: “For someone to hear that on a YouTube video is just disgusting.
