It wasn’t enough that earlier this month, 11-year-old drag queen Desmond Napoles, aka “Desmond is Amazing,” was paraded in front of bar patrons who threw dollar bills at him. A few weeks earlier, “Good Morning America” had to parade him in front of the whole country, too.

In what universe can anyone ever think something like this is OK? This is textbook child exploitation.

Where are Desmond’s parents? Is there no adult in this poor child’s life who can put a stop to this? Shame on “Good Morning America.” And shame on every adult who has failed Desmond this way. Pray that someday sooner rather than later, he gets the help he needs.
