Jennifer Aniston under fire for using the word 'retard’

Jennifer Aniston, who was promoting her new movie The Switch on US chat show Live with Regis and Kelly, has been criticised by disability groups after using the word in reference to a recent photo shoot in which she posed as Barbra Streisand.

In reference to the Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot, she replied to a question from co-host Regis Philbin by saying “Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!”

Peter Berns, CEO of The Arc, a non-profit group who support those with intellectual and developmental disabilities said the use of the word was “extraordinarily offensive and inappropriate.”

Speaking to Us Magazine, he said: “Frankly, someone in her position ought to know better.

“She is using language that is offensive to a large segment of the population in this country.”

Aniston was criticised earlier this week following comments about marriage. Bill O’Reilly, the Fox News host, said the 41-year-old actor was “destructive to our society” after she discussed she said: “Women are realising it more and more knowing that they don’t have to settle with a man just to have that child.”

In Aniston's latest film, she plays a single woman who uses a sperm donor to get pregnant.

Nice to have you back. I’ve just checked here occasionally over the last several months, partly because I was travelling a lot in the second half of the year during my sabbatical, which alas ended last weekend. Now that you’ve set the scene, I look forward to some informative and entertaining observations of life in Uppsala. Whatever the merits of Facebook, there’s still a place in the world for literate blogs.
