Jennifer Aniston stuck her foot in her mouth on a recent appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. While talking about a new movie, Aniston called herself a ‘retard’. That comment has outraged many and the timing couldn’t be worse, as there is currently a national movement that aims to eliminate the r-word from popular use.
Aniston’s exact quote was: “Yeah, I got to play dress up. I do it for a living, like a retard.”

How should Jennifer Aniston apologize for using the word ‘retard’? A good place for her to start would be R-World.org. On that site, individuals can pledge to stop using the r-word. As of this posting, more than 135,000 pledges have been made.
