Jonathan Van Ness is not afraid to speak about the things people tend to shy away from.
Van Ness recently partnered up with Poo-Pourri for a new ad and had one story in particular to share as he promoted the product, which is a before-you-go toilet spray.
The “Queer Eye” favourite told People: “It’s something that everyone does but it’s something that’s very stigmatized and people just feel kind of gross about it.”
He told his own poop story, “It was Sepulveda and Pico [in Los Angeles], and I was in a Kia Rio, at a red light, with nowhere to run.”
“And it wasn’t a ‘shart’ or a ‘chancer’, as my stepdad would have said. This wasn’t a chancer — this was a 27-year-old having a full diarrhea that was brought on by a hot, seafood spinach salad with a kombucha and frozen yogurt.”
Van Ness continued, “I’ve dealt with poo shame, and anywhere we can remove stigma and shame, I want to be here for it.”
