Jennifer Aniston Drops The R-Word In TV-Interview.

A week after being criticized by Bill O’Reilly on the O’Reilly Factor for allegedly promoting single-parenthood, Jennifer Aniston is embroiled in controversy again. This time she dropped the R-word (retard) while being interviewed by Regis Philbin on network television about her recent Barbara Streisand-inspired-photo-shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. While this hardly seems like big news, several groups have expressed their outrage over Aniston’s language.

It seems that Aniston just can’t get a break these days. It’s not like she’s starring in a sex tape or Internet porn (we’re looking at you Kendra Wilkinson), yet the media often hounds her for the slightest transgression. Here is Aniston’s quote in full after Regis commented that she was playing dress up: “Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!” Yes, that’s it. No big deal right?

Not according to Special Olympics spokesperson Kirsten Seckler who spoke out against Aniston saying, “Sadly, people use the word pervasively even if they don’t realize it. People with intellectual disabilities have fought their whole lives for understanding and recognition. When people use the R-word it’s hurtful…” How Aniston, an actress who brings joy to millions of people’s lives with her talents is hurting anyone is debatable, however it has provided the media with a reason to pick on her in the same way she supposedly picked on the handicapped in this case.

In related news, Aniston’s new film The Switch, co-starring Jason Bateman begins playing today. Despite the controversy surrounding her, Aniston showed up in a black mini-skirt showing off her fantastic toned legs last night. Looks like she’s recovered quickly!
