Mario Lopez is in hot water for his comments on The Candace Owens Show, a surprising turn of events considering that Candace Owens is an alt-right figure who once famously said that Hitler's nationalism was okay.
There's some very fine clickbait on both sides, with the right-wing propaganda network PragerU making their headline "Parents Should Not Raise Their Kids As Transgender" and Yahoo! summarizing the exchange as "Mario Lopez: It's 'dangerous' for parents to support transgender kids."
Owens brought up what she described as a "weird trend" in Hollywood in which celebrities support their kids however they chose to identify. She mentioned Charlize Theron, who in April, told The Daily Mail that her seven-year-old child Jackson identifies as female, and at three-years-old, said, "I am not a boy!"
The host cited her experience as a nanny to argue that kids don't always mean what they say, explaining, "I am trying to understand this new Hollywood mentality where they just think their children now have the mental authority."
