I've never had this happened and I've added literally never had  this happen (well that I know of since we just started getting tracking of this stuff.)

On the latest episode of Empire there are flashbacks showing how Jamal and Kai met and during their dating, Kai reveals that he is HIV positive. I tried adding the keyword "hiv-positive" but now see this is the status.

KEYWORDADDITION
hiv-positive

Reason
Not enough evidence.

Your contribution has been declined.There was not enough evidence submitted with your contribution.

Since there is no way to submit evidence, I'm not sure what this reason really means. But, a google search shows that this is the valid storyline in the episode, as you can see from the NYT article: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/31/arts/television/empire-jamal-jussie-smollett-kai-hiv.html

Did you think about trying it with just HIV?

It was an acceptable keyword suggested by IMDb. I don't think the problem is the keyword itself but maybe they just want to make sure it is correctly applied?

That didn't sound right when I read it. Sorry, that's the comedian in me coming out! LOL. I never admit to being P.C.

Seriously I do see your point. But being a Champion you'd think you would have a Lifetime Hall Pass!

Hi, CliffJ. Convenient as it may be, that may not be a good idea, unless there is a way to revoke the pass in the event of a contributor starting to slip too much or being revealed to be a confidence artist all along. It's not easy.

HI, Adrian. Would you do the IMDb site authorities a favor and post the 18-digit reference number of the pertinent keyword addition, so that they can look it up when time comes for this GS topic to be processed?

Interestingly enough, I was able to add this same keyword to an episode of "How to Get Away with Murder" with no problem.
