'The View' is in hot water after interview with HIV-positive child star
Last week, former child star Danny Pintauro went on The View to discuss his HIV-positive status.
Former Full House star, Candace Cameron Bure and Cosby Show alum, Raven Symoné sat down with Who's The Boss? child star in what The Advocate calls a "train wreck" interview.
The internet blew up following the interview, with critics saying Bure and Symoné were "insensitive" and "distasteful." Probably the most problematic question was Bure's insensitive inquisition about Pintauro's promiscuity.
A writer for The Advocate, Tyler Curry, explains why he believes Bure's questions are problematic: "First, promiscuity doesn't cause HIV. Unprotected sex does....But here is a problem with The View. A journalist conducting an interview shouldn't have one — a view! Or, at least, a journalist shouldn't let it be known."
Later in the interview, Symoné proceeds to make Pintauro's husband feel uncomfortable too.
Symone says: "I have a question for your husband. Please tell me if this is too personal," she began, as the camera zoomed in on Pintauro's husband. "Um, hi, I have a question for you...You guys have been together for three-and-a-half years, do you have protected or unprotected sex?"
There are countless opinions of this interview, as highlighted by the Twitterverse:
Whatever your opinion on this interview is, one thing's for sure. Pintauro's story will certainly raise awareness for the HIV-positive population, which affects 1.2 million people in the United States alone.
Here is a list of notable people also living with HIV/AIDS:
