Just another self-aggrandizing “Warrior Mom” who spun a tale to ca$h in on attention and $$ on the back of her child. At least her ignorant yap is no longer in the spotlight where autism is concerned.
Jenny McCarthy: My Son Is Being Bullied – But He Doesn't Realize It
By Charlotte Triggs
Seeing her son Evan, 12, get bullied while off at summer camp has been Jenny McCarthy's nightmare.
But watching his reaction – because of his autism, he doesn't pick up on social cues well enough to realize he's being bullied – has left her wondering what to do.
In a conversation on The View Monday, McCarthy, 41, described her conundrum.
"My son's main goal is to make as many friends as possible," McCarthy said, before adding that she got a heartbreaking email from the camp revealing that the kids he believes are his "friends" are actually bullying him.
"They're laughing at him but he laughs too," she said. "I said, 'You have to find the kids that like you and are nice to you. Who do you sit next to in the cafeteria?' And he said, 'No one. I ask, and they say no.' "
In some ways, McCarthy is relieved Evan is unaware he's being ostracized. "It's so wonderful that he's not aware that kids are making fun of him. But at what point do I need to teach him that?" she asked. "Evan told me, 'They ask me to put bugs down my pants and I do it and they laugh.' He thinks it's funny. Do I just let him be? At what point does it stop? In high school they'll be like, 'Here drink this?' 'Okay!' "

The departing “View” co-host shared the story about her 12-year-old son, whom she called a “rule follower,” on her Sirius radio show “Dirty Sexy Funny,” according to ABC News.
“We're driving in the car and of course I text and drive," she said on the radio program. "He called the police on me and said, 'My mom is texting and driving right now.' True story."
The radio host said she responded by throwing his phone out the car window. But that wasn’t the only time Evan called the police about his famous mom. When she once sneaked out of the house to smoke a cigarette, he became anxious when couldn’t find her, and so called for help.
"He called 911 and said, 'I am alone in the house. My mom abandoned me,'" McCarthy said. "I go back in the house and it's 911 and they're like, 'Your child just called. Is there an emergency?' I'm like, 'What? No! Everything is fine.'"
