Home Television Is Dead Animal Adventurer Steve Irwin’s 12 Year OId Son Being Exploited...

Thursday night’s Tonight show was a repeat of an episode I guess I missed from last February. It featured Robert Irwin, the 12 year old son of the late adventurer Steve Irwin, handling dangerous animals.

Of course, Steve Irwin was killed in 2006 at age 44 by stingray. It bit him in the chest.

Just prior to Irwin’s death, he exposed the then 1 year old Robert to mortal danger when he dangled him in front of a crocodile.

Apparently Irwin’s widow, Terri Irwin, has been doing this with both her kids since Steve’s death. She obviously can’t let go of being famous in Australia, so she’s using the kids. Maybe one of them will be eaten–sounds like good publicity. As far as this 12 year old goes, I don’t want to see him on an American TV show again until he’s of age– 21– and American TV producers should not book him. It’s exploitation.
