Darryl Rowe

A British hairdresser was sentenced to life in prison for deliberately infecting 5 men with the virus that cause AIDS. Daryll Rowe was sentenced Wednesday in Brighton, England for attempting to infect as many as 10 men with the HIV virus.

Rowe reportedly taunted the men with text messages that said, “I have HIV. Oops”.

The 27-year-old hairdresser met men on the Grindr dating app that is geared towards gay and bisexual men. After having sex with the men, he texted them, saying, “Maybe you have the fever. I came inside you and I have HIV LOL. Oops!”.



Sussex police said Rowe infected five men with the virus and he tampered with the condoms of another five men. Police say he persuaded the men to have raw sex with him by telling them he was HIV-negative.

Sussex police announced Rowe’s life sentence in a tweet on Wednesday. “We applaud the courage of victims who helped convict Daryll Rowe who set out on a deliberate campaign to infect men with HIV in #Brighton. He has now been jailed for life.”

Ironically, if Rowe lived in the U.S. state of California, he would’ve received a slap on the wrist and very little prison time, if any.

In October 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new bill into law that reduced the punishment for deliberately and knowingly exposing someone to HIV. The California law reduces the offense from a felony punishable by 3 to 8 years in prison to a misdemeanor that carries a 6-month prison term.

The California law also reduces donating HIV-infected blood from a felony to a misdemeanor.

Openly gay Democrat Scott Wiener, who authored the legislation, says the law is intended to reduce the stigma of HIV/AIDS.

    Life is the right call.

    He’ll get the best medical care that taxpayer money can provide….unfortunately.

  • Phillybruh

    That is if he wants it. I mean he was out there infecting people which means he wasn’t in treatment.

  • Rayne

    I came inside you…that right there makes me go ?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This is why you MUST NOT trust anyone with YOUR health..I don’t care who you are and how much you “Love them”. If you outchere screwing..protect yourself…you use your OWN condoms..make sure you see them put it on…and check every few strokes to see if its still there.. men will take it off on you..

  • Karen Brady

    Those are some cold ass text messages especially the first one.

  • Karen Brady

    I agree but LMFAO @ “check every few strokes”… could you imagine??

  • Karen Brady

    I agree about the part that says if he lived here… he would barely get a yawn.

  • guest

    Disgusting fa$$ot!!!! he should be killed!

  • sunni_daze

    The California law also reduces donating HIV-infected blood
    ^^^^ This makes no sense, I am anemic and can’t give blood, been turned down, but you want me to believe an HIV postive person can donate blood.

    That’s a bold lie.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    After closing down craigslist personal page due to the recently passed sex trafficking laws I am surprised that the government hasn’t gone after these dating apps.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I can’t believe lots of gay guys are back to barebacking due to PrEP but whatever floats your boat.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I guess that’s true but if he wanted to die he could have just killed himself.

  • Phillybruh

    Yeah its a special spot reserved in hell for people who do stuff like this.

  • candy

    The strokes part tho. ??. Lordt! !!

  • MookieFly

    Nikkas will try anything. The easiest way is to pretend like you’re playing with your clit but in actuality you’re checking to see if he still got the condom on. My grandma taught me that

  • Trace da Ace

    well not trying to be funny or insensitive or whatever, but that is EXACTLY what you get for having sex unprotected with folks you meet on the internet….so if a person is so adamant about not using a condom…..you may want to reconsider giving them any ass….cause 9 times out of 10….they have some shit that they want to pass off to you….STAY WOKE!

  • Libra80sBaby

    This damn DEMON.

  • Ni Ni

    Abstinence is the only preventative method via sex. You never know when that condom will slide off or like this demon tamper with it. The people who willingly had raw sex played russian roulette( like many of us) and this time they lost?.

  • Rayne

    Ok. Like do they still have common sense around here. Prep ain’t 100% tho

  • WutizstillHERE!

    i for real do a quick touch check not every few stroked but if we aren’t missionary and I can’t see it.. I will reach and touch to see. The funny thing each time he would be like Oh you like feeling it go inside you? I moan Mmmhmm..but in truth Im feeling if the condom still on you. LOL

  • Satin Panther

    Man things like this scares the fluck outta me which is why I’m 8 months celibate now and counting. A friend gave me nightmares talking about the crazy chit that’s going on in ATL! It’s bcuz ATL is now a damn cesspool has become a sex, drug and party fueled environment. They have nothing but strip clubs and swinger clubs in every corner and the down low men has polluted the women there. CDC predicts 1-51 ppl getting HIV in there lifetime in ATL..Please save your life and protect yourself.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True, PrEP is supposed to be used with a condom, but…………..

  • Ni Ni

    I wasnt playing with myself, but i reched down there to check because it just felt like nekkid dack inside me and it had slid off unbeknownst to either of us.

  • Queen B

    I live in Atlanta and it definitely hasn’t always been like this. Ive had the same partner for 6 years and if that niqqa give me HIV its lights out ijs

  • Queen B

    Lol ?

  • RealATLPeach36

    I’m two YEARS and let me tell you I have spider and cobwebs all over me LOL

  • RealATLPeach36

    You can run to my house I keep you safe until they threaten jail time lol

  • Coy little wink

    Maybe they should allow it …they can test it and give it to other hiv positive people

    Being anemic makes it dangerous for you to give…

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Now that’s what you call savage

  • Shira Harding-James

    What in the world?

  • king shun

    WILL THEY GIVE LIFE SENTENCES TO THE GAYS WHO HAVE GAVE AIDS TO SO MANY BLACK WOMEN IN ATLANTA?

  • Phillybruh

    Gay men can’t donate blood.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Yes, I had to do the same after my divorce….things were way different

  • Satin Panther

    Naw ATL wasn’t always like that at all. All the people that’s originally from there, the Grady babies always reminisce about the good old days before the influx of folks from all over moving there flooding the job market and creating hours long traffic. It’s just the DL men tho, it’s kind of heartbreaking for a str8 woman bcuz those men down there be so beautiful, gorgeous fit black men but they prefer men and it’s the men you wouldn’t even suspect swing that way but they do. And the ones that get infected don’t know how to handle it and then go on a rampage like this evil nugga and start infecting ppl as much as they can, bcuz their life is ruined. Some didn’t live long bcuz they kill themselves.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Wait?! I’m screaming

  • Shira Harding-James

    This has happened to me as well…OMG it was our first time ?

  • Coy little wink

    Yes I know but if the law relates to hiv positive donation…you can be positive and not be a gay man…

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I don’t trust prep at all!!! Just use condoms and find that one person

  • Satin Panther

    Girl I just saw a tumbleweed on me the other day but hey at least we are SAFE & HEALTHY!!!! YAYYYYY!!! YIPPYYY!!!! LOL

  • FukkFolks2018

    Didnt her ass just sit up here and SAY that we dont have the fukkin LAWS here to do such? You are quite the pain in the ass up here. I hope you go back up under the bridge you crawled from under and on your way back…get hit by a damn CAR. I keep trying to block you, but you keep changing your name back and forth so you KEEP popping up.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The CDC says half of all black men in Atlanta are HIV positive.

  • Phillybruh

    Very true

  • Rayne

    Exactly

  • Marlika

    ? I’m thinking he did this why doing hair.?

    With that being said had I been one of those people he sent that text I would have found him and beat the dog shit out of him. He should get the death penalty.

  • Blak

    Gays are running around justifying this saying that getting HIV and AIDS is no big deal because there is medication. Excuse me, what makes you think I want to shorten my life and live off of medication? This needs to be a law globally

  • Phillybruh

    What and who is saying hiv and aids are no big deal. I mean its one thing to not like gays but stop just flat out lying.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was thinking about trying it until I read the about the side-effects.

  • bella28498 .

    Once again this is just 1 of the reasons why I will not accept a blood transfusion even in case of ememrgency. MF’s are crazy but sidenote I thought that ghey a z z grinder app was suppose to show their aids status.

  • bella28498 .

    He isn’t lying, you are naive

  • bella28498 .

    ? lol

  • Phillybruh

    He is lying I don’t know any gay person that doesn’t think hiv and aids are no big deal.

  • king shun

    shut up dog you have not tried to block me one damn time i use this name as much as i use the other…and you can use you block now neve mind i will block you

  • bella28498 .

    That’s u just say u don’t know any but he’s not lying. Ghey men be throwing what’s called bug parties in hotel rooms. There will be like 8 men and 2 might be infected and each will pick a sex partner it’s like a game of Russian roulette but with sex

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Them side effects are horrible

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The law doesn’t allow HIV-infected people to donate blood. But the law protects people who do intentionally donate HIV-infected blood by reducing the offense from a felony to a misdemeanor.

  • Phillybruh

    How do you allegedly straight people know all this. That is a small fraction of the gay community. Next time say a small fraction because lord knows you all hate it when the blacks are painted with a broad brush.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    “Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection. The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank they are HIV-positive.”

  • Jennifer

    I can’t believe after all the AIDS awareness we have been bombarded with throughout our lives, people are STILL down with having raw sex with strangers.

    Can you really blame the person that hands you the gun to willingly play Russian roullette?

  • Tink Tink

    A friend of mines says a girl was trying to get money from him on tindr…I was like, I guess since they done closed backpage and craigslist personal, they gonna have to use the dating apps.

    It amaze me people like this impose their reckless lifestyle on others with the idea of infecting the other person because them themselves chose not to be proactive and wrap it up.

    He is a vile human being. What the hail is wrong with folks?! ??

  • Phillybruh

    After reading the law doesn’t protect those who donate with the intent too infect. You can still be charged with a felony if the intent to infect is shown.

  • HalleMerry

    I tell everyone I know to have a ‘clinic date’ both of y’all get checked out together and allow the Dr. to share the results..or NO Boooty for ya!! Then STILL wear condoms and get regular checkups…

  • king shun

    you and it getting mad must be one of the gays killing these black women

  • NorthDeKalb

    Hahahahaha!!!?

    He even tampered with condoms of some of his partners to ensure his partners caught it . Smdh. I know they’re evil people in this world but this is sick.

  • bella28498 .

    First I’m a woman and I know gay men…. They tell me! That’s how, did u really ask that question???

  • Meme

    You are absolutely correct bug chasers and gift givers, I remember reading about it several years ago and it’s not a small minority it’s a significant amount.. .side note don’t you just hate when people be talking about gays and then suddenly someone pipes up and compares the gai struggle to the black struggle ?

  • Satin Panther

    Yep I so believe it Sandra bcuz the men, especially the fine ones are always up in another man’s booty. It’s no joke how promiscuous they are and they are spreading it bcuz they are enraged that someone would do that to them so they take it out on the world. They need to start offering more places like the gym (gay heaven) HIV testing and also give therapy/counseling to those that test positive bcuz they end up mentally disturbed from the diagnoses.

  • NeverSurprised

    A tumbleweed .*dead*

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Put him in jail and don’t give him any meds. Let him die painful and slow. I bet that would stop others like him

  • NeverSurprised

    And that number is probably 5% to 10% shy of the actual number.

  • Satin Panther

    The folks in ATL said increase of people started coming after the Olympics in ’96 and the early to mid ’00’s but I remember black folks thinking they will have a better life moving to ATL bcuz of the lost cost of living which is no more and the club scene and people calling it the Black Hollywood but there is nothing but broke, pretentious, 5 people living in 1 apartment, scamming, lying stuntin’ nuggaz and the std’s is poppin..

  • Phillybruh

    I’m a gay man and I know its not common practice for gay men to be out here bug chasing. There is a small group of gay men who are into that. Just like black women like having babies out of wedlock and black men like leaving them but if I say all black women do this because I know a few I would be wrong.

  • bella28498 .

    Thank you!!! You said something these ni99as are allergic to (reading) ?

  • Phillybruh

    I didn’t compare any struggle what I said was you hate being painted with a broad brush like all black men are criminals.

  • bella28498 .

    So why did u pretend u knew nothing about it ? by Philly. Ppl like u always tryna disrupt other ppl getting game. ??

  • Phillybruh

    I never said I didn’t know what it was. What I said was how do you straight person know.

  • bella28498 .

    U are a black man first before gay…. matter of fact no one will not know of anyone sexuality unless u tell or show

  • bella28498 .

    Because gay ppl tell us ??

  • Meme

    Look it happens ALLLL the time, anytime a LGBT person feels the have encountered discrimination they start comparing it to racism!!! No disputing it it is a fact eeeeerverytime

  • bella28498 .

    Yea I hate that, if u really want to u can always hide sexuality but we can’t hide black skin.

  • Meme

    ??

  • bella28498 .

    Gay black men always tryna claim gay first ? no bish u Black first my ni9

  • Phillybruh

    I’ve never claimed gay first. But am I not allowed to get offended or defend the gay community because I’m black first.

  • Junkanoo

    When are they going to arrest that free loading shape shifting demon queen elizabeth its high time

  • bella28498 .

    Ok since we are splitting hairs, real y’all gay black men insinuate or will stick up for gay first REAL fast and furious. Now when it come to racism y’all lean alllll the way back and will find an opportunity to bring the gay agenda in.

  • imright

    he should be killed.

  • Phillybruh

    Speak for the gays you know. I will always be black first but I don’t forget that I am also gay. Which seems in my very own community that I do business in, vote for elected officials in still seems too find some kind of issue with me being gay, why is that?

  • Bossy704

    I follow Walter Lee Hampton and he says these the HIV/AIDS rate is so high in Atlanta due to deliberate infection. How can people be so reckless not to mention it is a grievous crime.

    He deserved to be put to death. These people are going to play around and get murdered giving people HIV. They’re going to mess with the right one and get phlucked up!

  • dontgetblocked

    And they’re pushing that drug that “prevents” you from getting HIV. Here’s the thing, anyone who has an illness and takes medication knows it’s expensive and a pain in the butt. Why expose yourself to something that is preventable….especially HIV.

  • Patricia

    i believe it

  • Patricia

    it happened after those blasted olympics!

    that was after the olympics. i was in highschool. so many new kids enrolling every month from new york etc.

  • ?Royalty?

    Its true. I wanted to move there until I found that out. You can’t even be a straight woman dating whom you THINK are straight men, because nowadays you just dont know the truth – especially in ATLANTA.

  • hottlanta

    Correction you can’t be a straight woman MARRIED whom you think is a straight man. None of us are safe married or single. I have asked this question time and time again and got no response. I ask how many married women who go to the doctor to get their physical also take a STD/AIDS test along with their pap smear. All I get is crickets.

  • hottlanta

    Yep they looking at Magic Johnson as the shining example and I tell them you don’t have Magic Johnson’s money, doctors nor time. Your minimum wage behind working at Radio Shack trying to sex everything that comes thru the door.

  • Durbhad CC

    i read a book once about this guy who had hiv and he was giving it to people on purpose. he was doing this as he said, to punish the people who had sex with him for not asking about his status and not inforcing the use of condoms when he would have sex with them. he was lucky enough to be aware that he had it and on meds but would watch the people he was with get sick go untreated and some would die. last spring, i threw that book the hell out of my house so i cant tell you the name of it bc i forgot. pretty horrible tho

  • LaksFan

    People want to believe their partners are not “liars” and they don’t get tested or use no protection. You get cricket because they don’t want to admit that most ppl don’t get tested. Many people are living a lie.

  • LaksFan

    Walter is the truth. Ppl mad at him bc he is being honest.

  • MRiGOThim

    Chile, u’d be surprised at what goes on in the gay community lmao

  • Ant Hill

    Boom Bye Bye in a batty bwoy head!

  • Ant Hill

    hey dummy, women to men transmission of hiv is next to impossible. you better go back and read Aunty’s archives.

  • Ozad

    hey stupid…try reading the CDC official Hiv website..if that was true Africa wouldn’t have the highest rates in the world, the majority of which are female to male/male to female transmissions. What you should have said is that female to female hiv transmission rates are low, but nothing is next to impossible….tootles!!!!

  • Ant Hill

    hey dummy, you are probably the typical faq/lezbo trying to pass blame on to heterosexual men. But here go the stats faq: Per-contact infectivity of HIV-1. Overall, the probability of female-to-male HIV-1 transmission for a single act of penile-vaginal intercourse was estimated to be 0.0063 (95% CI, 0.0035–0.0091). Almost 0% dummy, good try though.

  • Ozad

    hey imbecile, where the facts? where the link?….I know it’s hard being in the closet..but stop with the fake news
