"Mario Lopez apologizes for 'ignorant' comments about parenting and gender identity"
The nerve of that Mario Lopez! And he's STILL allowed on television? Some heads should roll for this. His apology is not enough, I'm afraid. He should damn be burned at the stake for his awful comments. The stake I tell ya!!
Here is the quote from the article:
The former "Saved By the Bell" star made the remarks last month on a podcast hosted by conservative personality Candace Owens.
In the discussion, Owens brings up what she calls one of the "weird trends" of Hollywood parents allowing their children to pick their gender identity.
Though she is not a parent herself, Owens said "I nannied for five years of my life" and does not believe that children have the "mental authority" to make such decisions.
In response, Lopez asked Owens "please don't lump me into" the group of Hollywood parents of which she was speaking.
"I'm kind of blown away too," he said. "Look, I'm never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids, obviously, and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can't go wrong. But at the same time, my God, if you're 3 years old and you're saying you're feeling a certain way, or you think you're a boy or a girl, whatever the case may be, I just think it's dangerous as a parent to make that determination."
He added, "It's sort of alarming and, my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on."
To be fair, he WAS sort of egged on by Candace Owens.... so she should be burned on the stake next to his.
Opinions such as these are totally unacceptable!
