He's still mentally 11 years old. He looks at his Dad for approval or even assurance. Trauma is real . Pray he's getting healing

He's saying "everything's great" but his voice and spirit sounds dead. PTSD. Poor young man. Please get him psychiatric help.

For anyone wondering how’s he doing now, unfortunately the step dad passed away last year due to bladder cancer. And Shawn has married and is a father now!

The better question might be - Why did his parents allow him to be subjected to this interview?

Author — Terri Pebsworth

Author

He was severely sexually abused, the way he keeps looking at his father for approval, is just heartbreaking

He was so scared. He was holding his dad's hand and constantly looking to his dad for approval and guidance. Sadly you can tell it's bc of the trauma this kid endured.

Update: He is now 28 years old and married with kids.

This seems more like an interrogation.. I see very little empathy and no consideration...

Oprah doesn't care that he's mentally traumatized she just wants ratings for her show

Author — Jessica Bryant

Why the hell did Oprah put that boy through that? Obviously he wasn't ready to talk. All for ratings.

Author — Kelly Clark

He was not emotionally ready for this interview. Maybe in ten years with therapy but right now he isn’t.

I actually had the pleasure of working with Shawn on the floor of a nursing home a few years ago and I assure you that he was not still 11 years old mentally. This man is one of the strongest people I have ever met that's been thru the unthinkable but came out if it still a great person. God love him.

The boy did not want to be found, as he felt ashamed by what had happened to him by the perpetrator. Typical for sexual abuse victims to feel guilty or ashamed as though it was their fault. He was happy to be found but not entirely. A lot happened to him and he has to now figure out how to move through the world being the person he is now.

Oprah is so annoying and tactless in this awkward interview.

Author — Steve Mano

Author

That child did not need a camera in his face. I can feel the trauma through my phone.

He talks about very emotional things and she answers with “yeah, ” and quickly asks another question. She is emotionally flat and insensitive.

This is awful. That poor boy wasn’t ready to talk about what happened

Author — Jade M

Author

So he said he doesn’t feel comfortable talking about the question he asked so her response is ‘ok so I’ll say it instead’ and the whole time she was talking about it you could see him curl up to his dad and hold his hand... just why?! He said he wasn’t comfortable and you said it anyway for your dumb TV show?!

You can hear the stress, anxiety and pain in his voice, why would the parents ever let this interview happen?
