Brandi Yakeima Lasiter wanted to punish the men of Americus, Ga., who had allegedly wronged her. She set her plan into motion last week on a Facebook Live feed, claiming to be HIV positive and broadcasting that she had intentionally infected her past sexual partners.
The video spread quickly and, although there may be truth to the saying, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” when faced with criminal consequences, the 36-year-old woman retreated.
Americus Police Maj. Herman Lamar told the Associated Press on Wednesday that Lasiter said that the video was a lie and that she was not HIV positive. Lasiter shared results of a 2018 blood test with the police department to corroborate the most recent version of her alleged bill of health. She also agreed to take a second blood test. It came back negative for the virus on Friday.
