Jenny McCarthy, world famous Playboy Playmate and autism guru, is spreading her knowledge once again. She expressed outrage that Charlie Sheen, her former onscreen love interest on Two & A Half Men, did not disclose his positive HIV status. Sheen’s manager clarified the star was not infected until long after he worked with McCarthy, but the truth will not dissuade her from sharing her story.
GomerBlog’s Amy G. Dala sat down with Jenny McCarthy for an exclusive interview.
AGD: Tell us, Ms. McCarthy, your concerns about working with Sheen as it relates to his recently disclosed HIV positive status.
JMcC: Well, you know, we worked in the same room, breathing like the same air. So he should have told me he had HIV…it’s criminal he didn’t tell me. I ate from the same food tray, shook his hand, stared deeply into his eyes. All of those things could have been very dangerous. I had a right to know. As a mother, I should have known.
AGD: You do realize you can’t acquire HIV from casual contact like kissing, hugging, and sharing foods, right?
JMcC: Well, that might be what “scientists” say, but what do they know? It’s entirely possible that HIV can be spread through the air too. Just like autism is.
AGD: Hmmm, I think I misunderstood you. What did you say about autism?
JMcC: You know, that it can be spread through the air or come from drinking water. But most commonly, autism comes from vaccines.
AGD: Ms. McCarthy, there are innumerable studies proving a lack of association between autism and vaccines. Isn’t it irresponsible for you to spread such misinformation?
JMcC: Look, I’ve done my “research” too. Just because I don’t have a fancy medical degree, prior research experience, or any formal scientific training doesn’t mean I can’t have a valid professional opinion.
AGD: Yeah, it kinda does.
JMcC: Well, the American people are desperate for information, and I give it to them. And I just love giving it to the American people.
AGD: And America thanks you, Jenny McCarthy.
