Is Jimmy Kimmel Prank 'We Ate Your Halloween Candy' Bad For Kids?

Psychologist Robi Ludwig weighs in on a prank conducted by ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel where parents tell their children they ate all their Halloween candy.

Ludwig said on "New Day" Friday, "this isn't funny if you are a parent who is tricking a child, video taping the reaction and putting it on the air."

Watch the video and let us know, do you think this is amusing or harmful?

    Oh please! Halloween's origin is not-so-pretty. This 'therapist' is taking it a bit far. It's candy. Nothing good about candy anyway... So please, lighten up. Besides, they'll forget all about it in the morning!
