Outbreak of Suspected Strain of Legionnaires’ Disease at Hugh Heffner’s Playboy Mansion


Outbreak of suspected strain of Legionnaires’ Disease at Heff’s Playboy Mansion. Some are speculating that they became ill at the Playboy mansion at the Domainfestconference in Santa Monica, held February 1 to 3. Is it possible, could the famous Playboy mansion and bachelor pad have caused so many to become ill? An investigation is under way by the LA County Health Department.

From the NY Post:

Can the Playboy Mansion make you ill? Hugh Hefner’s iconic bachelor pad is under investigation after more than 80 guests at a conference and party there became sick with a suspected strain of Legionnaires’ disease.

Scores of attendees at the Domainfest conference in Santa Monica, held Feb. 1 to 3, came down with symptoms including fever, respiratory infections and violent headaches. Four Swedish guests were diagnosed with Legionellosis or pontiac fever — a milder form of Legionnaires’ caused by bacteria that thrives in warm air-conditioning systems.

However, others are stating it is mere speculation and rumor that the blame is being put on the Playboy Mansion … ”but you can’t be sure.” Statement from the Playboy representative, “Don’t Blame Us for Illness”.

There is no truth in the rumor that anyone caught anything at the Playboy Mansion. Nor is there any evidence. None of the Playboy staff became ill, the deejay was in the middle of the fog and she didn’t get ill. We have been contacted by the Health Department and the Playboy Mansion is cooperating fully with the investigation.

      Don’t want to seem judgmental but IRRESPONSIBLY mixing GOD’s created technology with the DEVIL’s sin on earth like at the Playboy Mansion is NOT a good idea!! Bad SPIRIT and KARMA there and against the word of the Lord Jesus Christ! John: 3:16 You must be born again!
