Magic Johnson says "Glad I've Been the Face of HIV for 30 years"

Former basketball player Earvin "Magic" Johnson showed his four-part project, “They Call Me Magic” directed by Rick Famuyiwa (“Dope," "The Wood”) at Austin’s South by Southwest (SXSW) festival Saturday. During the first episode Johnson speaks about his HIV journey according to MSN.

"I never go backwards. I always go forward, so yes, it's my purpose," Johnson says. "And I'm glad I've been the face of HIV for now 30 years. (It's) because of my wife's support, and my parents support, and my kids that I'm still here 30 years later. I'm so blessed to have her as my wife and my partner, business partner and partner in crime."

Is it possible Magic is a paid influencer?
