    Anyone who uses the word retard in relation a person with developmental delay is an arse hole.

    Anyone who takes offense because someone uses the word retard to describe something like Snooki or in relation to themselves doing something dumb is an arse hole.

    TACT people. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH..blah,blah,blah, BS, BS, BS. If I hear anyone use this word, I think A LOT LESS OF THEM & will speak my peace of mind when I hear this word.. Now that is freedom of speech. American Idiots-a name of a certain album...starting to believe it's TRUE.

    People need to get a "LIFE" she said retard... not to mention she was referring to herself... and when I referred to someone with a disabilty I use the term special. If you take offense maybe you should move to a country that doesn't have freedom of speech.

    Paleeese!! E-one should already know how much this women "does NOT" ever hurt or say anything to hurt them intentionally.....Obviously it did hurt some ppl, but u gotta understand and forgive...God didn't make a perfect person. I do not know 1 person in the world that hasn't said something in private that they would never want the world to hear....she just happens to have to watch every word she says,,,becuz of ppl like U!!! Leave her alone....

    @andrea ismail...um, it's spelled "dumBer then dumB."

    Who gives a flyin' crap...Obama made this same mistake and people forgave him and forgot about it. And, furthermore, if we are no longer calling them "retards" and are now calling them "people with intelligence disabilities" (person-first classification) than it would stand to reason that this isn't offensive and in fact it would have been more offensive if she had said "I do it for a living, like a person with intelligence disabilities."

    The word "retard" doesn't just refer to a mentally slow person. The dictionary says it also means a person who is stupid, obtuse, or ineffective in some way. I am so tired of people trying to impose their own insecurities on everyone else. If when you use the word retard, you mean it in a disparaging way and you feel bad about it, don't use it!!! It won't be long and mechanics won't be allowed to retard a distributor!

    Jesus, who really cares...so she called "herself" a retard...wtf...
    The sooner someone tells the media and public to F-off the sooner all this political correctness BS will be over...
    Way to go Jennifer you did just fine....

    Please, she did it on purpose!! She's just another not so talented actor who will do anything to get more attention and to have the media talking about her. I can't stand her! Any woman who is considering paying a surrogate to give birth to her child because she doesn't want to ruin her body is extremely shallow!

    Another example of people trying to be pc. They don't realize Jennifer is human like the rest of us. Maybe it was poor taste but it was likely just a 'slip of the tongue'. I don't think she said it to hurt or offend anyone and she was referring to herself anyway. People need to get a grip and not freak out over this.Don't make a mountain out of a molehill over this. It's just stupid. The fact is there are people who are retarded, the word has been around forever it's not going away so get over it. People are being way too sensitive about this.
