Sure, the sun can be used to create energy, but it also has the power to create some serious controversy.
The Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation is blasting Rosie O’Donnell for discussing the safety of sunbathing earlier in the week and stating that, “Exposure to the sun isn’t dangerous.”
The organization believes the comments to be “ill-informed” and “irresponsible” and is asking the television personality to retract her statements in a public service announcement. Whoa!
Well known cartoonist Marisa Marchetto, who is a longtime supporter of the group, tells New York Post’s gossip column PageSix, “Going out into the sun without protection is as, or even more dangerous, than having unprotected sex.”
Well I’m not sure about that, but certainly one should be careful.
What do you think about O’Donnell’s comments? Does she have a responsibility to explain herself, or is the Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation taking this all just a bit too far? Chime in and share your thoughts!
