While appearing on The View this week, Josh Elliott recalled questioning his own sexuality as a teenager when his father revealed he was gay. While guest-hosting on the popular daytime program on Monday, the Good Morning America news anchor said, "My first feeling when my father told me was loyalty, thinking, 'I guess I have to be gay too. Maybe I'm gay? It's a lot to work through as an 8th grade boy." After the show, Elliott received quite a few positive tweets, including one from View cohost Jenny McCarthy, who wrote, "So proud of you."
