“Queer Eye” star, Karamo Brown, joined the chorus of people criticizing Mario Lopez about the comments he made about parents who allow their children to choose their gender identity at an early age.

Lopez seemed to be on an episode of “great authority under Candace Owens Show in June, where he and the host were very critical of parents, as well as Charlize Theron, who recently revealed that she is raising her 7-year-old adopted child as a girl based on her request. The company described the increase of transgender children as well as a “foreign trend” and “scary”, in which Lopez agreed, calling it “dangerous” and “shocking.”

“My God, my God, if you have a 3-year-old, and you are saying that you have to feel a certain way, and believe that you are a boy or a girl, or, as the case may be… but I think that it would be dangerous, as the parent, to decide.”

Brown, who serves as the culture expert on the Netflix revival of “Queer Eye,” took to Twitter to try and open up a dialogue with Frank about his comments.

“I don’t have to read it @MarioLopezExtra comments about parents who have their child in the openes [sic] about their sexual identity. As a social worker, I am trained to identify abuse or neglect of a child. Healthy & safe, a dialogue w/ the kids is not abuse, neglect, or ‘dangerous,’ ” he wrote.

The star sent a follow-up tweet, noting that he does not think Lopez’s comments should be a career-ender.

“I don’t think that @MarioLopezExtra has to be cancelled. But I don’t think he will have a chance to learn why his comments were harmful to the trans young people and their parents. Mario, I’m ready to talk to you as you are.”

During the interview, Lopez was asked by the Company about the “trend” of trans kids, especially in Hollywood.

“Well, I’m not a parent, I have nannied for up to five years of my life and the things that come out of children’s mouth, they say what is happening in the moment, you don’t know what they’ve seen on TV what is happening in their head,” Owens said. “”I’ve got the children to say that they are mermaids, and I’ve got the children to say that they will be able to fly and jump off a flight of stairs, and thank God for that, I have caught him right because he thought that he could be the man of steel.”

She said: “I’m trying to understand the new Hollywood mentality, where they just think their children will have the spiritual authority.”

Lopez agreed, nothing like that, he’s still trying to figure this out, and asked her not to “lump me into that whole [group].”

“My God, my God, if you have a 3-year-old, and you are saying that you have to feel a certain way, and believe that you are a boy or a girl, or whatever the case may be… but I think that it would be dangerous, as a parent, have to be determined. Then it’s, ‘OK, you’re going to have a boy or a girl.’ as the case may be,” Lopez said. “It’s a bit of a cause for concern. My gosh, I can just think of the consequences later.”

Lopez concluded by saying that he feels like a child’s “childhood” at a more appropriate time to talk about gender identity.
