Mr. Marcus Spreads Cooties
click here to read) about the government wanting to make all adult films use condoms.
Dude has been making porn for almost two decades and should have known better than to pull this shit. “I tried to cover it up…because I said it was like the scarlet letter. It’s the word. Syphilis, whoa” he said during an interview with Xbiz. “Mr. Marcus, syphilis? Mr. Marcus, the one I worked with? The one that everybody works with? The one that’s been in this industry forever?”
Yes, that one. The one who inspired thousands of Black guys to fuck while wearing white socks and a baseball cap. I’ll cop to do one of those two things. You guess which. He was told he wouldn’t be contagious after a week and a half and eleven days later showed up like “Its Bone City!” and now nine other people have syphilis. This isn’t even a case of him being able to plead ignorance. Apparently he covered this up.
He was diagnosed on July 12th, got his shot of penicillin on the 13th, and went back to work eleven days later. Reports say that the producer of his next film didn’t even ask for a copy of his STD test, instead Mr. Marcus showed a cell phone picture of it leaving out the part that says “This guy shouldn’t be fucking anyone for a while!”
And for his next film he folded up the part that said he had tainted love and was called out on it. Next thing you know this news breaks and he is all super apologetic about it. I checked his Twitter page to see what he had to say about this.
“I can’t apologize enough. I'll always be sorry this happened. Trust is hard earned and I messed that up. #Gottadobetter” and “Gotta find some peace in all this shit.” No dice, dude. You don’ goofed!
