Gena Tew stated in her most recent video while explaining the various possible ways she contracted AIDS that she had been molested several times while she was homeless and living in New York. She went on to say:
“I got a few free tattoos, so it may have been a dirty needle.” Do I recognize any of those people? No. Did I say anything when those events happened? No. Because I was inexperienced, ignorant and young.”
The influencer also revealed in her health updates that she was ignorant of the diagnosis, having not been examined in the past 10 years. According to her videos, the influencer had the virus when she was between 17 and 19 years old.
