Charlie Sheen HIV Statement at AIDS Foundation Party

0229-charlie-sheen-AIDs-foundation-shirt-negative-GETTY-01Charlie Sheen wanted everyone to know he's HIV free -- at least that's what his wardrobe seemed to be screaming at Elton John's AIDS Foundation party.

Charlie's t-shirt at Elton's annual Oscar event read, "Stay positively negative." Sheen has maintained there's no trace of HIV in his blood ... ever since announcing last November he'd contracted the virus.

The event raised more than $6 million for AIDS research, and if some thought Sheen's clothing selection was in questionable taste -- Elton and his husband David Furnish didn't seem to mind.
