Porn. Dirty crushes. Vibrators. First love. Fetishes. Cheaters. Mastrubation. It’s all in a day’s work for host of MTV’s “Savage U,” Dan Savage. Dan’s been writing a sex column, “Savage Love,” for over 20 years (yup, before some of you were even born!!), produced plays, published a book, launched the anti-bullying movement It Gets Better, has a podcast and even an iPhone app. Uh yeah, homie is busy. But with all this work and success comes critics. So I asked Dan how he handles his haters.

Well he def. doesn’t channel Maino and wave to his haters. Dan says that if receives around 5,000 emails a week for his sex column, half of those emails are filled with criticism. “2,500 of those emails are people screaming at me. They think I’m wrong, they think the advice is terrible,” he explains¬†nonchalantly. Dan says he’s used to the criticism and actually appreciates it. Wha?! Maybe he is waving to his haters like Maino?! Watch the video below to see what Dan is talking about. He def. has an interesting perspective on the matter. And while you’re at it, check out “Savage U” airing tonight at 11/10 c.
