Celebrity physician Dr. Drew, best known for hosting popular shows such as “Celebrity Rehab,” has admonished Americans against stigmatizing herpes and denigrating Usher’s alleged STD status.

Dr. Drew believes the herpes hysteria surrounding the Usher sex scandal is ridiculous and that people are making the disease sound far worse than it is.

The hysteria, as Drew calls it, began when an alleged $1M payment that was made by Usher to a woman who allegedly contracted the STD from him was leaked to the press. Since then, several others have filed lawsuits against the “Confessions” singer, including two women and a male. They are being represented by celebrity ambulance chasing attorney Lisa Bloom.

Here, Dr. Drew implores Americans to take a different perspective on herpes. Take a look:

    Well, I am happy to know that Dr. Drew set the record straight about the disease STD. Now all those who were affiliated with Usher, should be ashamed of themselves trying to make some money off the Love singer. If it was me, that bitch would have to pay back that money to Usher. Who knows, she could have gave it to Usher herself. Thank you Dr. Drew for the clarification.

    Herpes is very very common. It will help prevent the spreading of herpes if people know more about it. For example, protected sex is very important. It’s not 100% safe, but better than nothing.
    For people living with herpes, I would like to suggest === ===, a private and comfortable place toe meet someone in the same boat for support, date and love.
