Denis Leary is in some deep water over those harsh comments he made about children with autism. But after coming under fire, he’s set on defending his comments he wrote about the disorder in his new book.
He says in a statement: “If they have read the book, they missed the sections I thought made my feelings about autism very clear: that I not only support the current rational approaches to the diagnoses and treatment of real autism but have witnessed it firsthand while watching very dear old friends raise a functioning autistic child."
Denis should have known better! If you’re a celebrity these days, you have to keep your mouth shut on controversial topics, or the public will criticize you. The only exception is politics!
