Backstreet Boys

Pink Eye

Won't Kill Our Tour

8/28/2010 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Backstreet Boys ain't afraid of a little contagious infection -- in fact, according to the band's rep, A.J. McLean's crusty pink eye won't have any effect whatsoever on the remainder of the band's tour.

BSB's rep tells TMZ, A.J. -- who was recently diagnosed with the leaky eye infection -- is "doing fine" ... and the band's current tour will go on as scheduled.

As for the other guys -- we're told the rest of the band was inspected by a doctor as soon as they discovered A.J.'s pus problem ... and they all tested negative.

No word on who farted on A.J.'s pillow.

Saw them here in Wa on August 4th! They were fantastic! Played for about an hour, all their old stuff and new stuff as well!
Loved the way they made everything from beginning to end like you were watching a movie, really cool.

People, please get your reality checked. Pink eye does not occur due to farts or poo. Its a common joke/ignorant misconception.
I saw the TMZ episode;
"Is that really how you get Pink eye?"
"Yeah, according to Knocked Up."
According to Knocked Up? What a sad joke.

UHMMMM actually pink eye CAN occur from farts and POO! So i would advise you to get a reality check before you make yourself look like a dumbass on TMZ!

@Chelseawilson Conjunctivitis occurs due to viral/bacterial reasons. It can happen because of dusty weather changes, infected swimming pool water, dirty hands, or just by being in contact with an infected person.
Since poo does contain a lot of bacteria, it can occur from that. But how does it mean that it's the only cause? And using "Knocked Up" for reference?
Please, grow some brains.

What is the world coming to? I watched the TMZ episode on this; "Is that really how its caused?"
"Yeah, according to Knocked Up..."
