'View' Guest Host Terry Crews Vociferously Defends Fatherhood to Protests by Single Mother Jenny McCarthy (Video)

“I'm a single mother, and I can guarantee you I can give Evan every one of those things also,” McCarthy says in response to Crew's claim that fathers give children a name, their story and their security.

Guest co-host Terry Crews made a passionate plea for the importance of a father in a child's life on Friday's episode of “The View.”

“I've posted things on social media and people got angry at me and what I said was that there are some things that only a father can give you, OK?” Crews said. “Now, people went, ‘wait, wait, my momma…’ I said, hold up. This is what I believe and I believe this from my heart. We care more about organic food than about organic people.”

Crews explained that fathers gave children a name, their story and their security.

Jenny McCarthy shot back at the “Brooklyn Nine Nine” star and defended her work as a single mother.

“I'm a single mother, and I can guarantee you I can give Evan every one of those things also,” McCarthy interjected.

Sherri Shepherd backed up Crews comments saying that “there are things that a father can do that a mother can't.”

Whoopi Goldberg hit back at Shepherd's remarks saying they took away from the importance of mothers.

“I was raised by a single mother and the story I got from my dad was you're kind of on your own, babe,” Goldberg said. “That's the story I got. What I got from my mother was, you may be on your own, but you're not alone.”

McCarthy argued that she was able to imitate what a man does in ensuring confidence for her kids.

“Are you saying Evan can't get confidence now?” McCarthy pressed. “This can only be from a father?”

“What I'm telling you is a man has got to give him his security somewhere in his life,” Crews shot back.

“Evan is the most confident, awesome kid,” McCarthy countered.
