August 23, 2022

Magic Johnson just shot down a rumor claiming he recently donated blood ... With the Hall of Famer calling the story a flat-out lie, TMZ reports.

A Twitter account posted what seemed to be a photo of Magic donating blood back on Aug. 18 -- and it speedy went viral, as it claimed the Lakers legend, who was recognized with HIV in the early Nineties, changed into giving blood in order to help the ones suffering from COVID.

But, Johnson stated Tuesday it's all completely fabricated.

"I'm privy to the fake story circling the net," the sixty three-year-vintage stated, "and to be clean, I actually have in no way donated blood."
