What did Mario Lopez say to get him in trouble?

Lopez, 45, told Candace Owens that it’s “dangerous” as a parent to show support for their transgender kids.  During the 40-minute interview, the conservative commentator noted that it is a “weird trend” for celebrities to allow their children to choose what gender they identify with.

“I’m never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids, obviously, and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can’t go wrong, but at the same time, my God, if you’re 3 years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make that determination.”
