He called it “the beast,” saying it was “no cakewalk,” but that he’s “not looking to scare people.”

“I’ve lost 13 pounds in three days. I’m a big guy. I started off at 230 pounds. My wife is feeding me like, you know, we were still in the dating phase. So it’s not like I’m hurting for nutrition. I’m eating and drinking constantly, I’m just sweating it out and it’s the sickness,” he went on to say.

He also called out “B.S. on the internet that people are trying to peddle as cures.”

“Fake pills, fake tonics … People are selling a lot of lies and people are buying them up because of the desperation and I get it, but they don’t work. There’s no proof in any of them and I think we have to be very careful about people preying on desperation.”

He went on to say his fever is still “probably around 101.”

There are dozens of stars who have come forward with their positive coronavirus diagnosis.
