Yesterday, Jenny McCarthy slammed Charlie Sheen for failing to publicly reveal that he's HIV positive several years ago when he was first diagnosed.
Lots of women are pissed that Sheen never told them about his condition, but that's because he put them at risk by having sex with them with no prior warning of the risks involved.
McCarthy simply played Sheen's girlfriend on a few episodes of Two and a Half Men, and while that show has been known to cause physical illness, it's only because of the atrocious writing.
McCarthy never had sex with Sheen (as far as we know), so she was never in danger of contracting HIV from him.
That's why it's beyond annoying that she's still going off about how angry she is that she worked with an HIV patient without her knowledge.
Rather than apologizing for her initial remarks, McCarthy went on a Twitter rant last night and inadvertently proved that she's as dumb about HIV as she is about the non-existent link between autism and vaccines:
"The point I raised about Charlie Sheen on my Sirius radio show, had nothing to do with whether or not I think he put me at risk. I simply took issue with the double standard in the industry.
"Every actress (and actor for that matter) must disclose hundreds of personal health matters before ever being allowed to set foot on a film set.
"Yet an actor who interacts physically with dozens of actresses in intimate scenes, is not required to disclose that he has HIV?
"I am very aware that HIV is not spread through kissing, but I also believe that if an actress has to disclose all of her business before kissing a male costar, the actor should be required to disclose something as major as an HIV infection too.
"His disclosures in his personal life are none of my business, and are for him to reconcile with the people he interacted with privately. I am not one of them."
No. Just no. We literally don't know where to begin with this argument.
For one thing, McCarthy literally said, "Ick...it's scary!" on her Sirius show when talking about Sheen's HIV, which sounds an awful lot like someone who thought they were at risk of contracting the illness.
But more importantly, the reason that actors and actresses are required to disclose a condition like a cold sore and not HIV is because oral herpes can be transmitted through kissing, whereas HIV cannot.
If she and Charlie were making a porn together, he would be obligated to inform her that he has HIV.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why dozens of porn stars have ample reason to be pissed at Charlie Sheen, while Jenny McCarthy does not.
