I agree I watched the interview. I work with people in the hospital a lot who have scars or disfigurements all the time. Not that bad but any of it can really weigh on people who have to wear them all the time. And people who have to deal with the drudgery of feeding tubes etc. Moving on and not acknowledging it as a reality or even attempting to laugh I think is much more offensive. You know the woman knew how uncomfortable she was making Oprah once she removed the veil. Someone had to take that moment and lighten it up so it wasn't like the giant elephant in the room.Originally Posted by JustJuls;3749149;
Besides what would anyone honestly say to her? This woman has to wake up every single morning as she is in a hospital. She is likely surrounded by people who feel much pity for her, who shy away from her. She on the inside the same person she was before this happened and I'm quite sure the person she was before had the ability to laugh. Her life probably wasn't one day of calamity after another. Honest to god what was Oprah supposed to do. Go, "I'm so sorry the chimp ate your face?"
I thought it was a pretty interesting interview and pretty tactfully done.
