A New York City man who claims he was abruptly fired from his finance job at a car dealership after his employer learned he is HIV-positive has recruited celebrity support after the company denied all allegations in his wrongful termination lawsuit.

Jeffrey Villacampa, 43, hosted a press conference in New York on Wednesday with Aviva Drescher, reality television star from "The Real Housewives of New York City," and Corey Johnson, candidate for New York City Council.

"I'm saddened but not shocked by their continued ignorance," Villacampa said.
