Sheldon DeSouza, communications co-chair for the Black Gay Men Network, which is part of the National AIDS Institute, is leading the fight to have Wendy boycotted, censured and educated on HIV/AIDS issues following, what he claims, was ill-informed advice to a 23-year-old male caller last month who wanted to know how to deal with a male love interest who's HIV positive.
Sheldon was livid and rushed to a phone to call Wendy. Once he was patched through, the two got into a spirited - sometimes heated - debate on the issue of HIV.
His group has since been urging its members - and others - to sound the alarm and contact Wendy, her flagship radio station, WBLS, and advertisers with their disapproval.
Here's the original phone call and discussion with Sheldon and later Michael, who said her comments were "irresponsible."
And now, here's Sheldon taking his disapproval and talks of boycotting to the people.
