Because old people say the darnedest things, Jennifer Aniston apparently dropped the “R-word” on Live with Regis and Kelly this morning which has already prompted outrage from organizations for the retarded even though her use of it seems to be pretty accurate to me. Us Magazine reports:
On Live with Regis and Kelly Thursday, the Switch star, 41, was discussing dressing up as Barbra Streisand for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar when she let the word slip.
“You’re playing dress up!” Regis told her. She replied, “Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!”
Peter Berns, CEO of The Arc (a nonprofit advocate for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities), tells UsMagazine.com it was “extraordinarily offensive and inappropriate.”
I think she summed up acting fairly. Anyway, I love how this is turning into Jennifer Aniston vs. The World month. First, it was Bill O’Reilly, now it’s only a matter of time before Sarah Palin stops defending Dr. Laura for repeatedly saying “nigger” and starts firing shots from a plane at downtown Manhattan. “Racial slurs, yes. Retard, NO! *ratatatatatatatatat*” That being said, if Angelina Jolie isn’t the end boss, this whole thing is officially retarded and I dare the Special Olympics to say otherwise.
I should probably go cut a check.
