GLAAD, the National Black Justice Coalition and the Black AIDS Institute on Monday 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 21 episode (Video, AFTER THE JUMP...) of The View blaming Black men on the down low for increased rates of HIV in Black women, despite evidence to the contrary from the CDC.

“On June 22, during a discussion about blood donation and the transmission of HIV/AIDS, a guest moderator on the show expressed his interpretation of data about one way the virus can be transmitted.
