Daphne Oz Speaks Out Against Critics Calling for Her Dad’s Resignation
Daphne Oz hit the red carpet in support of the Food Bank for New York at last night's Can Do Awards, but also chose to speak out in support of her father, Dr. Oz, who came under fire earlier this week from a group of doctors questioning his ethics, who want him to resign from his faculty position at Columbia University.
“The Chew” co-host told “Extra,” the experience has been “painful,” but they are getting through it as a family, saying, “The really nice thing is that as a family, we can go through anything, and we are so close.”
Daphne revealed to “Extra” that her father will speak out to the naysayers during his show on Thursday. “It is very powerful, the message that he has to share about kind of how bogus the things coming out are.” She continued, “What I would say is, the biggest thing for him is just making sure that America can have conversations; we're about free speech, we about making smart and informed consumer decisions. That to me is the most important thing for me as a parent. I just want the best information I can have to share with my family and to make good decisions for my family, so the more we can have of that conversation, the better we are.”
“That's all his life has been about,” Daphne says of her dad. “Sharing that good information for America, making us healthier, making us happier.”
