Jenny McCarthy may be best-known as being an anti-vaccination activist who may have helped contribute to America’s worst measles outbreak in two decades.

My God! What is it with all this political correctness?! She made a JOKE. I can see why some would be offended but to call her transphobic is a huge leap
