Charlie Sheen’s HIV revelation sparked many “he deserved it” reactions from the public, as well as a slew of tiger blood jokes. But in the midst of these, Eazy-E’s son is speaking out about the similarities and differences between Charlie’s diagnosis and his father’s.
N.W.A.’s Eazy-E died of AIDS in 1995 when his oldest Son, Lil Eazy-E, was just 10 years old. TMZ asked Lil Eazy his thoughts on Charlie’s diagnosis, and his response was surprisingly logical. Here’s what TMZ heard back from him:
“Lil Eazy told us, he thinks Charlie is lucky because he will have a full life expectancy due to medical advancements. He points out there were no lifesaving treatments for HIV when his dad passed away.
Lil added, there are a lot of similarities between Sheen and his father — mainly the fame, wealth and women that came with it. He says the biggest difference is Charlie will get to see his kids grow up.”
Eazy-E died before he was able to watch his kids grow up, but as Lil E notes, Charlie will be more fortunate. Modern science has advanced so much over the past 20 years, it’s mind-blowing. Charlie will be able to live a normal life while HIV positive, something that was unthinkable back in the ’90s.
Lil Eazy is the CEO of NWA Entertainment, LLC and an HIV activist. Find out why Bone Thugs-n-Harmony don’t think Eazy-E died of AIDS below.
