Penn State Scandal: Sheryl Underwood Breaks Down Talking About PSU Tragedy (VIDEO)

As the Penn State scandal continues to make headlines, various media outlets are examining the alleged actions of former football coach Jerry Sandusky, who is currently charged with 40 counts of sexual abusing eight underage boys.

Comedienne Sheryl Underwood touched on the controversial topic on a recent episode of "The Talk," where she shared her personal experience similar to the recent news story.

"I'm going to say it, from probably the only person on this table who has ever been through something like this, this is how it's done," she said. "You watch them, you break them down, and then you blame them for whatever you do as an adult..."

"This man, if this is true, was allowed to do this. And this community needs to take responsibility for him." Check out Underwood's full comment in the clip above.
