Variety Ad: GLAAD, African-American Groups Call on ABC and ‘The View’ to Publicly Correct Misinformation on Black Men and HIV


GLAAD, the National Black Justice Coalition and the Black AIDS Institute today published a full-page ad in Variety calling on The View and ABC to publicly correct disparaging misinformation from Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley on a June 22 episode (see third video) of The View blaming Black men for increased rates of HIV in Black women, despite evidence to the contrary from the CDC.

More than 3,000 people participated in GLAAD's original 'call-to-action' yet no action has been taken by the show's producers or its hosts.
