GLAAD urges Univision not to air Pulse segment

February 24, 2017

GLAAD today responded to the news of a Univison segment on the Pulse Nightclub mass shooting:

GLAAD strongly urges Univision not to air the upcoming segment of Crónicas de Sábado on the Pulse Nightclub shooting which includes a re-enactment and the sensationalist title “Baño de Sangre” ("Blood Bath"). This show's promotional videos alone have upset many – airing far too soon after the deadliest mass shooting in American history, which targeted the Latinx LGBTQ community. While GLAAD has not seen the segment in its entirety, if the ad is any indication, this could be a traumatic experience for many who are trying to heal from this tragedy.
