Steven Crowder, host of Louder With Crowder, is facing serious backlash after a segment on his recent livestream where his guest host mocked the newly announced gay Captain America, saying the character will contract HIV/AIDS.
Dave Landau, a comedian who studied at Second City and works primarily in Detroit, said this without a second thought on a crowded livestream.

This segment came shortly after Landau made transphobic comments about actor Elliott Page, claiming his "breasts will be auctioned off on eBay".
Landau also said the new teenaged Captain America looked like he "sells ecstasy outside of a rave in the year 2001."

This is not the first time Crowder's brand has made offensive statements against the LGBTQ+ community surrounding HIV/AIDS.
In another video, Crowder claimed the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which is actually one of two currently active pandemics in the world, was all a hoax and never happened.
39 million people have died from HIV/AIDS since the pandemic began in 1981.
Friendly reminder that Steven Crowder also believes the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 80s and early 90s was a hoax created by the media.— Ashworth (@Ashworth)1612301670.0

Aaron Fisher, the new Captain America, was inspired by "heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders and everyday folks pushing for a better life."
Those folks included members of the ACT UP movement, who pushed for national attention for the very real HIV/AIDS crisis.

June 2, 2021 is when we can expect Aaron Fisher, the new Captain America, to debut, according to writer Joshua Trujillo.
The special will see Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, and Fisher—all iterations of Captain America—teaming up to find the Captain's stolen shield.
