Several comments were similar to those quoted above. However, anyone commenting and thinking similar things would be terribly wrong. Charlie posted several subsequent videos to clarify this shameful misconception. In the following video, he commented that although he can look straight into the camera and wear glasses, he is actually blind. Charlie explains that blindness is a spectrum and he has 4% of his vision left, commenting that his vision is comparable to seeing through a small straw.

Charlie goes on to explain how he lives the blind life and even shows his card indicating that he is legally blind. He adds that the reason he looks at the camera is because he can; because he wants to show people “how awesome it is to be blind and use your mobility tools”, commenting that it’s cool to show people that you’re proud to be who you are . He also comments that “unfortunately we’re still learning” but says that’s fine and we can all learn together, adding that people don’t need to have the ultimate extreme version of a disability to use any what a mobility tool. Charlie then comments:
The next time you see someone using a cane or showing off how awesome they are using their own mobility tool, whether it’s blindness, whether it’s in a wheelchair, whatever it is, at the instead of thinking, ‘wow, this person is faking this! They’re trying to take advantage of the system, why not be proud of them for standing up for themselves and for living the life they’re really proud of? To be proud of who they are when society shoots them down every day of their lives?
Charlie ends his video by saying, “Let me tell you, people. Blindness is a spectrum. Share this video; it is an important message.
