Given his penchant for controversial remarks regarding homosexuality, we're just frankly surprised it took him this long to speak up!
But yes, author Bret Easton Ellis has used his Twitter to refer to Glee as a giant puddle of HIV, swore that Matthew Bomer cannot act straight enough to portray a character like Christian Grey in 50 Shades, and now, is defending Paris Hilton against the remarks she made regarding promiscuous gay men having unprotected sex with others via Grindr!
It's truly unfortunate that they're refusing to acknowledge a clearly incorrect statement.
On yesterday's episode of The View (above), while discussing the issue of HIV and AIDS in the African American community, Sherri Shepherd and guest host D.L. Hughley caused quite a bit of controversy by making some misinformed comments regarding heterosexual women contracting the disease from closeted gay men through intercourse.
Unfortunately, that information is incorrect, and GLAAD has asked the talk show to retract the damaging comments.
GLAAD's Senior Director of Programs', Rashad Robinson, says:
"Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley's claim that African American gay and bisexual men are ‘primarily' responsible for increased HIV rates among African American women is inaccurate and dangerous. Medical experts, including the Centers for Disease Control have dispelled that myth and ABC has a responsibility to its viewers to correct the information. Shepherd and Hughley's comments fuel a climate of homophobia and racism."
With all the misinformation and falsities still out there regarding such a widespread disease, we're disappointed that ABC would have no problem letting clearly wrong facts knowingly be given blindly to their viewers.
What do U think?? Should The View retract their comments??
And since Mr. West knows all too well that the Grammys have a history of bending the rules for other artists, he won't bother showing up to the ceremony if his friend and collaborator doesn't get the same treatment.
At the Oakland stop on his Saint Pablo tour, Ye addressed the crowd on the inner workings of the Recording Academy, and how they allegedly made exceptions for their eligibility rules -- like Lady GaGa's 2010 Grammy performance.
