On the heels of her controversial father-figures-are-irrelevant comments, Jennifer Aniston used the “retard” word during an interview on the Regis & Kelly show. Expect Jen’s BFF, Bill O’Reilly, to comment on this matter shortly. According to Us magazine:
“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.”
Her PR rep must be very busy this week!
