    Lee Daniels once tried to commit suicide by having unprotected sex with strangers while under the influence of drugs in an attempt to contract HIV/AIDS and die from the disease.

    “I thought that I needed to go. And so I descended into drugs and into sexual bathhouses to die,” Daniels said during a lecture at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & TV.

    He went on to credit God as the reason that he was still alive and AIDS-free. “That I don’t have AIDS is a miracle from God,” he said. “I really don’t understand it, because I should have had HIV. Everybody else did.”

    Daniels also spoke about HIV/AIDS and how it had affected his life as he watched others suffering from it.

    “It [AIDS] wiped away all of my friends. I had no friends,” he said. “It was terrifying, because we never knew whether you could drink from glasses or what it was. It was the most terrifying thing ever, and I didn’t understand why it was that I wasn’t [dead], because there were far better souls than me that were going [dying].”

    LMBO! Your gif made me think of that old black reporter that was swatting flies and saying he wanted to "get the fuck out of this country ass area."
