HIV Prejudice on ABC's "What Would You Do?"
      02/22/11 07:01 PM

Did you guys see the segment about HIV prejudice on last week's "What Would You Do?" You can see the clips for yourself below.

In the first clip, HIV-positive actor Daniel Logan pretends to be a customer at a diner, where another actor sitting next to him overhears him talking about HIV and asks if Daniel has AIDS. After Daniel clarifies that he has HIV, the actor moves away and refuses to touch the same menu as Daniel. They then pretend to get into a debate about HIV transmission. After the second actor leaves, one of the customers is kind enough to come comfort Daniel and asks him to join her table.

In the second clip, Daniel goes behind the counter and acts as the waiter instead. When the second actor finds out Daniel is HIV positive this time, he asks to be served by someone else. Thankfully, two of the diners speak up and defend Daniel, especially when the actor says Daniel shouldn't be serving food if he has AIDS. Sadly, when they do it again, one of the customers turns out to be just as ignorant. Even after revealing to him that he's on TV and that you can't get HIV from touching, he refuses to shake Daniel's hand.

Here are the two clips. what do you think?
