Jenny McCarthy posed a question on Twitter, this week. The former Playmate and host of The View asked what the ideal personality trait of a mate would be. The results were not what she had expected… or were they?
McCarthy is somewhat controversial for her beliefs on child vaccination. She believes vaccinating her child was directly responsible for her son developing autism. She also believes she cured her child’s autism by feeding him a gluten free diet. These beliefs have been widely criticized and shot down by much of the scientific community, however, her public status has lead to a large following of other believers.
Her Twitter post about the ideal mate turned into a backlash of responses from people who believe she is single handily leading a movement that will pose a threat to society. McCarthy responded to the negative comments by thanking them for raising her “Q Score” and keeping the job offers flowing.
The following is a sample of the replies and her response.

#JennyAsks they have a basic understanding of science and they don’t shoot of their mouth without supporting evidence

As one whose mother is 100% deaf in one ear due to measles, I’d say — someone who elevates history & science over pseudoscience. #JennyAsks
