She continued, “In your home, you guys can do whatever you want. I don't want my son to be growing up and seeing two men kissing each other and thinking this is normal because this is not f**king normal!"

Captain Sandy told TooFab in an interview on June 3, ahead of the preview being released, "I heard it through chatter. Like, the crew don't run to me and say, 'Did you hear what happened?!' They're not like that. They basically keep it to themselves. But someone mentioned Mila’s comments, and I just thought, 'Wow.'"
