“I was raped when I was 5 years old but the guy didn’t really go into it. When he was about to put it in, my grandfather came. I forgot my wallet at home. I was saved.”
While still attending, the comedian reported that he told his parents the story some time later and they were surprised by the situation. He concluded that he may have contracted HIV after the abuse and questioned his parents about the disease. “Then, when I was 12, I found out that AIDS existed. I thought, ‘I have AIDS. My god, I could have AIDS!’” the comedian recalled.
Adnet says it’s important to raise the issue to raise awareness about child sexual abuse and says it’s important to have sex education.
