Jennifer Aniston Uses Word “Retard,” Comes Under Fire

By Daniel Gates



Jennifer Aniston has sparked controversy by using the word “retard” during a “Live with Regis and Kelly” interview on Thursday.

When Regis Philbin told the actress, “You’re playing dress up,” in reference to the recent photo layout in which she mimics Barbra Streisand, Aniston responded, “Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!”

The star’s insensitive slip was met with strong criticism from viewers and advocacy groups. While Aniston didn’t use the word with any malice, it obviously crossed the line of good taste.

Many people think Aniston owes an apology for her remark, while others believe she should get a pass for being careless.

What do you think?
