Jenny McCarthy – told while co presenting, The View, on Monday that seeing her son Evan, 12, being bullied while at summer camp has been a nightmare. She received an email from the summer camp telling her that the kids he believes to be friends are actually bullying him.

However, she told that because of his autism, he doesn’t pick up on social cues to realize that he is being bullied. This has left her wondering what to do.

She told, on The View:

“They’re laughing at him but he laughs too,”

Adding further that she told her son:

“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.”

McCarthy told that in a way she is relieved that Evan is unaware he’s being ostracized and being made fun of.  But then added at what point does she need to tell him the truth?

“At what point does it stop? In high school they’ll be like, ‘Here drink this?’ ‘Okay!'”

McCarthy will be leaving the show after this season.
