Earvin "Magic" Johnson sat down with Anderson Cooper on "Anderson 360" to talk about being "the blessing and the curse of HIV" and the black community needing to be more accepting of homosexual family members. "At the end of the day in our community, we gotta start accepting those who are gay in our families," he told Cooper.
He also spoke about being totally supportive of his son E.J. being gay. "It's important that Cookie and I support our son," he said. "My son is gay, that's a reality… I love my son. Nothing's gonna change that."
