‘Tropic Thunder’ Makes Retard Blunder
Spokespersons from the Special Olympics and the American Association of Disabled Persons have protested the use of the term retard in Tropic Thunder. The movie, a farce about filming a Vietnam action flick, is set to be released on Wednesday, August 13. Studio execs have refused to change any of the film’s protested language.
Look for picket lines with a lot of misspelled signs.
