CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

On Thursday's Chat Room, Sun-Times Splash Editor Susanna Negovan, lifestyle consultant Rochelle Trotter, GDC anchor Dawn Hasbrouck and DNAinfo reporter Mark Konkol discussed the historic decision to close 50 Chicago Public Schools.

The group went on to discuss 9-year-old Marcus Garvey student Asean Johnson, who made an emotional and unscripted speech this week, slamming Mayor Emanuel and fighting to keep his elementary school open. Konkol also spoke to the security concerns that have so many parents up in arms when it comes to their kids getting to their new schools safely.

They also discussed the increase of shirtless men in advertising and media, Disney Channel pulling an episode of "Jessie" where the character Stuart is teased for his gluten-free allergy after backlash from parents, what happens to a woman's body when she wears a corset and what's happening with Charles Ramsey.

On Thursday's Chat Room, Susanna Negovan, Patti Vasquez, AnnaDavlantes listened to how Angela Rose overcame sexual assault and discussed domestic violence with Dr. Daniela Schreier.
