He is considered as the punch-line of the modern day generation. Hasselhoff was considered a total hottie on big screen and television and earned a lot of recognition for his hot body and great skillset.

Gold medalist of 1984, Louganis hit hard on the Olympic diving board. Later that year it was revealed that he was HIV positive. However chlorine is capable of killing HIV virus and his blood got diluted in thousands of water gallons, eliminating the risk for other divers. He became a public face for two things: being a gay athlete and being an HIV positive sports personality.
He’s an extremely successful boxer who supposedly had AIDS. Morrison’s test results were positive for HIV in 1996. The same year in February he disclosed in a press conference that he contracted HIV due to a reckless, fast and permissive lifestyle. Morrison founded KnockOut AIDS Foundation to promote recognition and fund raising. In 2007 his results were negative for HIV. He passed away in 2013 and his death may be associated with HIV/AIDS because his mom claimed he was HIV positive whereas his wife denied it altogether.
