Jennifer Aniston has been having a hard time with the media lately. First she was publicly attacked by Bill O’Reilly after promoting single mothers and now she seems to have found herself in hot water once again.
While I totally support the comments Jen made on single parenting, her slip-up on Live with Regis & Kelly was a little disappointing coming from such a respected actress.
During the interview (which can be seen in the video below), Aniston uses the term “retard” while joking with Regis.
Was it appropriate to use that word in an interview? Probably not. Was it a mistake that most of us have likely made at some point in our lives? Yes.
Give the woman a break. A lot of people have said a lot worse and gotten away with it.
If you’re mad at Jen for saying it, you should be mad at Regis and most of the members of the audience who laughed after her comment.
Do you think Jen’s use of the word retard was inappropriate?
