Mario Lopez Apologizes For "Ignorant" Comments About Dangers Of Parenting Transgender Kids

Date August 1, 2019 15:42

Mario Lopez is a notable journalist of the entertainment industry. It's merely his job to analyze celebrities' lifestyle. He noticed how oddly actresses like Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie are raising their kids. Jackson Theron identifies as a female while Brad's daughter as a boy.

The Access Holywood host discussed this matter on Candace Owens show. Mario deemed this mentality very alarming but, pinned the blamed on the children's parents. He said:

You think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make that determination.

He is sorry for his comment

The transgender community felt attacked by his remarks. Lopez had indirectly labeled LGBTQ people to be wrongful and objected how they are brought up. Soon enough, he tried to mend his mistake and promised to improve his communication.

Mario put his apology on record with the help of People Magazine. In his regretful statement, he admitted to being inconsiderate. The anchor reconciled by confessing:

The comments I made were ignorant and insensitive, and I now have a deeper understanding of how hurtful they were. I am going to use this opportunity to better educate myself. Moving forward I will be more informed and thoughtful.

He's a father himself

Perhaps Mario Lopez's guilt arose from his love for own children. He and his wife Courtney recently welcomed their third child and named him Santino. His older siblings, Dominic Luciano and Gia Francesca, were really excited for the little brother.

It's a lesson learned for Mario. His opinion may have weight in some cases but, it lacked proper delivery. Share this and let us know if you accept his repenting.
