Talk Back: Is the criticism against Chaz Bono and ABC fair?

 

From CNN's Carol Costello:

Even if you're not a fan of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," you've likely heard of the controversy that erupted on Monday night after it was revealed that transgendered activist Chaz Bono was invited to appear on the show.

Hundreds of viewers are not happy about the invite, with some fans saying they are going to boycott the show and its sponsors, and others claiming that ABC is "pushing the homosexual agenda."

In response, "Dancing With the Stars" executive producer Conrad Green told the Hollywood Reporter, "We don't have an agenda of any sorts. I think of the 120 celebrities we've put on the show, we've had, I think now, three transgender or gay contestants. If that's a homosexual agenda, we're not doing very well at it."

Let us know what you think. Your response may be read on this morning's broadcast.
