The Gays Continue To Slam The View!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayLGBT


Due to Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley's disparaging comments about black men who are "on the down low," GLAAD took out a full page ad in Variety blasting The View.

The ad, which was cosigned by the Black AIDS Institute and the National Black Justice Coalition, reads:

"The Centers for Disease Control has publicly disproven this myth. And since June 22, thousands of people have written to ABC, asking that The View provide correct information to viewers. Unfortunately, those requests have been greeted with silence from both ABC and The View."

And that was just the half of it!

Ready to say you're sorry?!

    They should go directly to the company that owns ABC. Disney owns it, and the head of Disney is a lesbian.

  2. 2

    Call me old fashioned, but what exactly is this comment supposed to mean?!!

  3. 3

    Everyone in the Black community knows that homophobia and gay men that are ashamed and in denial about their sexuality is the main cause of AIDS in the Black community! If you are gay, be out and proud! More importantly, PROTECT YOURSELF. Don't lie to women and use them to cover up your secret. We need to end homophobia in the Black community so gay men won't feel the need to hide and use women as a shield. Too many unsuspecting Black women end up with AIDS because their bf/husband is in denial about their sexuality and don't get educated about safe sex practices!

  4. 4

    I think the ladies on The View are RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too many men are on the "down low" on this one and bringin' home to their women! Good for the gals of The View for stating it as they see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. 5

    Isn't she the chick that thinks that the world is flat? I guess they want to make sure that the right wing tea baggers are well represented, so they give free rein to her and Hasselhoff.

  6. 6

    Men have highest risk sex with men, then have sex with their wives without telling them they're giving them AIDS. Nothing 'untrue' or 'disproven' about it, except to suggest that it's limited to black men.
    Are you suggesting black culture is more accepting of gay and bisexual men? Love to hear your facts on that.

  7. 7

    THe bottom line is HIV is transmitted mostly man to man, and to a man to woman by sexual contact GLAAD can try to put any kind of spin you want on it, but that is a fact.

  8. 8

    god she is ugly, who cares what she says anyway, she is about the stupidest woman on the planet, she thought the earth was flat for Christ sake

  9. 9

    You people are fucking idiots, the CDC clearly states that the main cause of HIV spikes in the black community is not from down low men but from promiscuous woman, unprotected sex, and drug use from dirty needles which is rising in the African American community. That fatass needs to do her research before spewing such nonsense.

  10. 10

    I'm trying to understand why anyone thinks men on the 'down low' wouldn't be a major source of HIV infection to women. And why is it surprising to anyone that black men are more 'down low' than white men? What about the black community would make a gay man feel safe? Hip hop music? Rap? Pit bulls? Swaggering in saggy pants? Treating women badly? Multiple children with multiple mothers? Hmm, sounds real gay to me.

  11. 11

    UMMMM as a gay man….
    i side with abc and the view

    there are alot of nasty undercover brothers out there always tryin to get some ass from whatever they can get….

  12. 12

    I don't normally watch the View but you mean to say this Shepherd woman thought the earth was flat?!!! Hahahahahah! Why would they have someone this stupid on a show where women are supposed to discuss current issues..!

  13. 13

    I agree somewhat with the statement. My father is black and he was with my mom for 16 years before she found out he was gay. It just so happened to be that she was in the health care industry and had to get a checkup and the found out she was HIV positive. My father would go out and have unprotected sex with men and cancel it out by going home and having sex with my mom. I think that it is a problem in blacks because they are truly ashamed to admit they are gay because of the strong black man stereotype and the fact that it will add something else to be discriminated about. Plus black men in general don't like to use protection and will have sex with people who don't use protection either, witch is great for the virus. So it really a combination of some black men homophobia, choices not to use safe sex, and guilt that causes that to happen. Plus, I wonder how they proved this myth wrong. These guys aren't even admitting to there self that they are gay and yet we're supposed to believe that they will tell that truth in a survey.

  14. 14

    god i hate the View!! they are such stuck up snobby idiots. they talk so much shit i cant believe it!!! everyday!

  15. 15

    I have to wonder if D.L. Hughley holds such voracious venom on the subject because his freakin' name is *COUGHS* "D. FREAKIN' L. 'DOWN LOW' HUGHLEY" *COUGHS* Even his style EPITOMIZES that of black gays with disposable money… pierced ears with WOMEN'S jewelry no less, impeccable twisty coiffure, fancy tortoiseshelll eyewear et al. Not to mention his preening impish gait. If it looks like a duck and talks like a duck then his wifey had better be running to her GP for an Elisa antibody test stat!!!

    Because of course ONLLLY black men on the DL are contracting and proliferating the virus amongst the black community. Why do they not mention the statistics of black unwed mothers who collect "baby daddies" like they do welfare checks? If anyone is introducing HIV/AIDS within black America it is the thousands upon thousands of black FEMALE sex workers who for a twenty dollar note will forgo prophylactic protection and bareback a stranger for five five minutes in the back seat of a stolen Lexus.

    Sherri needs to study up on the dangerous culture of promiscuity within Black America pronto. Yeah some married men fuck guys but there are plenty more who are out porking hookers in the butt without rubbers. Ah but of course it is much more acceptable to be an infected African-American prostitute than it is to be a Black homosexual living an honorable life.

    MY BAD!

  16. 16

    This Shepherd woman and the other guy, whoever he is, are simply trying to hide the fact that drug use in the most common transmission means of speading AIDS in the black community. Shepherd flaunts her "Christian" values by lying and propagandizing. They are the kinds of fanatical nuts that give Christianity a bad name. The "truth" to them is whatever serves there own personal prejudices and bigotry.

    Maybe gladd is miss informed… but then how would they know the facts,,, if is on the download?… right? Gladd have become like peta!! un credible… too much celebs running it.

    Re: YOMOMMA-IS-SOBLACK – you are absolutely right!! tell the truth!!

  19. 19

    tRe: GavinGav – you left out butt fucking, which is as high risk as needles cuz w/o condoms semen to blood (always present in anal sex) is a direct transmission opposed to semen to vagina… ur probably sensitive about that transmission since you obviously take it up the ass hence your handle but as a promiscuous woman since the 80s and one who lost a boyfriend to aids, 2 decades later and multiple testing still didnt contract it cuz i didnt take it up the ass with him, thank god!!!

    Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley said that black gay men on the DL were ENTIRELY responsible for the spike in HIV in the black community. The Center for Disease Control says that is not true. Of course there are cases where women contracted it from cheating husbands who had unprotected sex with men, but the majority of infections comes from intravenous drug users who share needles AND have unprotected sex with their partners. Sherri Shepherd is an uneducated idiot and she needs to shut her bigot mouth. D.L. Hughley is also a homophobic bigot with a long history of making untrue statements about gay people.

  22. 22

    I watched this show live and was in shock. I couldn't believe the backwards thinking of both Sherri and DL. It is dangerously irresponsible of The View, Sherri and DL to propagate misinformation about HIV and the black community. They are doing everyone a disservice. For years we have avoiding addressing our role in the spread of HIV, preferring instead to blame the gays for the problem. The longer we blame the down low the faster HIV will spread killing our mothers, brothers and sisters. Yes the down low contributes to the spread of HIV but so do the prison system, abuse of intravenous drugs, and lack of sexual education.

  23. @v@ says – reply to this


    How dare The View not cater to special interest groups. The people on the View must only say on air what these groups have first vetted to be politically correct according to them. Lol.

  24. 24


    The View is complete shit anyway. They don't have a brain cell between them.

    Everyone at this point compares it to HENS CLUCKING….

    not an intelligent thought .

  25. 25

    As a gay woman it is of my opinion that Sherri Shepard and D.L. Hughley said absolutely NOTHING they should apologize for. In fact, their message is incredibly IMPORTANT. Homophobia in the black community is a matter of life and death and more public figures in the black community need to address this matter.

  26. 26

    the bottom line is women catch hiv from men…period! doesnt matter if the man is straight or gay, most of them are just men and lie. women are just bitching and complaining because they feel they can't trust their straight husbands. well honey, hes not straight, hes blowing men in the steam room at the gym, jerking off in the showers for all to see, hes walks around naked in the park and trys to get fucked. im not saying hes gay, im saying he's a whore. if you don't understand this by now, im sorry for you. realize love is usually a business relationship and you have to expect pretty often he is cheating on you with other men. i mean think about it, men just want sex. its easier to cheat with another man then it is a woman, because women ruin it all with their "falling in love" straight woman need to wake up!

  27. 27

    A good punishment for hard-core prisoners should be writing transcripts for The View.

  28. 28

    i HATE these old ass stank bitches!!!!! i wish they would go off the AIR!!!!! im soo over them!!!!

  29. 29

    She is a disgusting uneducated homophobic bitch who isn't fit to be my maid and he's about as ghetto as you get. I'm so sick of black homophobia that it's making me racist. The fact is just like in Africa the majority of blacks have a thing about gays and they will blame them for everything and be in denial about facts. It's sad but I'm fed up with this shit. I love Barack Obama and Whoopi Goldbeg,smart,compassionate and modern unike Sheperd and down low Hughley who disgust me everytime their mouths open.

  30. 30

    The real problem is needle sharing from drug addicts,but you don't hear this uneducated bitch ever dealing with the real problem,just blame the gays. This bitch and pimp should really ask why the black community is so hateful and violent against gays that black gay men are forced to marry and have sex with women just to no be humilated ,shamed and abused if they are found to be gay. Another major problem are the black churches which are so over-the top hate infested against gays it's disgusting.

  31. 31

    Sherri Shepherd continues to prove that she's a complete idiot. Why is she still on that show?
    Re: marlow – There's a video on YouTube! Type in "Sherri Shepherd Earth Flat", and you'll find it.

  32. 32

    can't she buy a better wig?

  33. 33

    another thing. who the f writes this blog? it does not make sense. WHAT are you talking about…..what comments?

  34. 34

    The View is so pathetic. Does anyone even watch that show? (well except for 98 year old Elvira Doolittle of Bum-Fuck, Iowa). They stir this shit up for one reason, ratings. Ratings equal advertisers and advertisers equal money!

  35. 35

    What's wrong about what they said?

  36. 36

    oo snap lol

  37. 37

    Re: Josey W. – Are you trying to tell me gay black men like Rupaul have girlfriends who believe they are straight??" Come on!

  38. 38

    Most of you people are so fucking wrong its laughable. There is no HUGE number of gay men with "wives and girlfriends". Maybe 5% of gay guys are what you term "on the downlow". So are some women here admitting they are too brainless to know if they are with a gay man or not? Seriously? And do you think gay men like to have sex with women? hahaha We arent attracted to women so WHY would we be fucking them left and right?? It makes no logical sense but to BIGOTS and IDIOTS who needs common sense when youve got urban myths, right???

  39. 39

    I'm waiting for GLAAD to take out a full page ad in Variety denouncing NAMBLA.
    Or NJ Governor McGreevey.
    But that's not gonna happen. They are selective in their outrage.

  40. 40

    Re: Josey W. – How about too many women end up with HIV because THEY DON'T PROTECT THEMSELVES??? It's not a man's fault. STOP HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX! People don't seem to get that HIV is 100% preventable - stop being a fucking whore and sleeping around with everyone! I don't care if you're gay, straight, bisexual - GET SMART and BE SAFE!

  41. 41

    and fucking Sherri Shepard is going to hell. Do I believe in hell? No. But she does, and she's going there. She's a complete fucking idiot and a waste of space. Why is she even on that show? They need to just can her over this shit. Unbelievable.

  42. 42

    Although their comments were racists and out of line, there is truth in what they are saying. There is a huge spike of HIV in the black community. I have several black male friends who just recently came out. But, for the the last 20 years (since they were teen-age) they refused to tell their family, because of REAL fear. So, instead they slept with as many women as possible, even one fathered a baby. It was so sadd. To live in fear like that, but they were very wrong, sleeping around without protection with women who had no clue. When HIV hit one particular guy, and all the men and women he slept with, it was truly a traumatic moment for the community. I know several people with HIV. Most are honest about their situation. I know one girl who got diagnosed when she was 13. See contacted the disease through sex, ended up pregnant, and found out because of the pregnancy. This girl was purely evil. She felt that if she had the disease than she was going to give the disease to as many people as possible before she died. She slept with 100's of unknowing men. When my family and I attempted to notify the cops about what she was doing, we were told their was nothing they could do. It was such a CRAZY situation!!!!!She eventually passed, but there are still people who have this disease because of her.

  43. 43

    It's a myth… a complete myth.

  44. 44

    Re: JackTheRipper – Do you really think all Black gay men are as flamboyant as Rupaul?? Come on! Do you know what DL means?

  45. 45

    if anyone is looking to Sherri for life advice they are in a sad, sad place. I think someone must bring her to work every day because she seems too stupid to find her own way

  46. rayna says – reply to this


    Sherrie Shepard has dead eyes all the time. she can put on a fake smile but still has those mean eyes. She's got an attitude.

  47. 47

    I love her dress! Could care less about whose fault HIV is, although I will admith I have heard alot about black guys on the "down low".

  48. 48

    I don't see anything that they need to apologize for b/c it's true. I don't think "Down Low" men are the primary reason why African American women have a high rate of HIV and AIDS, its b/c the majority of blacks does not use condoms. I'm a black woman and I see this everyday. Young women getting pregnant at young ages and keeps having babies back to back. Young men just being disrespect toward women. Most black men, gay or straight, refuse to use condoms. And whats bad is that some women do not ask for condoms or carry any themselves. Hell they don't even want to get tested. It's a shame that almost 30 years this disease have killed millions of ppl all over the world and it seems no one is trying to protect themselves.

  49. 49

    Ah, yes, Sherri - the moron of the show. Sherri, who didn't realize the world was round - seriously. That level of stupidity is not acceptable.
    The same Sherri who had a whale of lipo done, then "claimed" she lost weight. Uh huh.
    Nothing out of that idiot's mouth is worth listening to.
