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.
Unbelievable!! !! How can people think this is OK?????.

Very sad. This is abuse. In any other context this sexualization of a child would be roundly condemned not cheered.

Child abuse. And GMA endorses it. Shame on them.

Why is this mainstream? Why does no one involved have a conscience? I keep looking at Michael Strahan for some sign of fatherly discomfort w/ this, but it's clear nobody in the audience has the courage to object, leave, or step out of line (with the woke orthodoxy). Child abuse.

Just wow. This is child abuse and disgusting they would show this.

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.
Shame on the parents and GMA for promoting such behavior. What’s becoming of our society when this action by a young boy is applauded?

That poor child. I am crying for this entire, exploiting, abusive scenario. The hypocrisy and promotion of whatever this is has me on my knees for this child and all involved with placing him in the spotlight.

Everyone in that studio should be ashamed of themselves. Just plain sickness. Just goes to show you that Society has lost their moral compass. God have mercy on us all.
