TV show host born with disability apparently scares kids

A host of CBeebies, a BCC digital children’s show, has been stirring commotion among parents and their children.

Host Cerrie Burnell, 29, born with one arm, has been said to “scare children” because of her disability.

Parents commented on the CBeebies Web site with great discomfort claiming Burnell would give children nightmares and some wouldn’t be able to cope.

On the otherside, some said the comments are like another form of racism and there are lessons to be learned. It’s discrimination against people with disabilites.

Of children who ask questions about her disability, Burnell said they are asking honestly because they are curious. She explains to them why she is the way she is and they usually move on, said Burnell.
