Oh I kid! We love this stuff around here! With a full-page ad (PDF) in the Hollywood trade Variety, GLAAD is continuing its assault on ABC’s The View, where the incredibly misinformed commentariat has a platform to say dumb things about gays.
It’s at least Phase 2, maybe Phase 3 — who’s counting? — of GLAAD’s campaign against the show.
After reaching out and failing to score a public apology from the network, GLAAD called on its members to email the show. That hasn’t worked. So now it’s time to see if Hollywood, particularly the A Gays who run the town, will take notice and pressure the network.
Variety, meanwhile, is just happy to have somebody taking out full-page ads.
