  5. I hope you don’t have friends who recommend Ayn Rand to you. The fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you gan get re fiction. I hope you picked it up off the floor of the subway and threw it in the nearest garbage pail. She makes Mickey Spillane look like Dostoevsky.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

Crazy how someone could actually care the impact his words has on people…
No “I didn’t mean it that way”, “You took this the wrong way”, “You need to lighten up”
Legitimate concern for the mentality of his listeners

i don’t want to take away from the sincerity of this apology because being confronted with your own ignorance and accepting it without reservation is SO GOOD, but how does anyone exist in the world today and not know that “spastic” is a slur? this is absolutely basic. weird al might be checking all the right boxes but why not do that BEFORE you record your parody tunes?

It’s a really common term for most of the us. It’s still used regularly on television and movies with little or no popular criticism. I’m not saying it’s ok that he didn’t research it, but it’s not surprising to me that he didn’t know.

Two things:
I don’t know where all of the previous commenters come from, but it is worth noting that there has been a pretty big difference between the US and the UK historically about the offensiveness of that particular term… I don’t find it particularly shocking that someone like Weird Al would be ignorant to just how hurtful it can be.
Oh, and another thing… “Crazy”? Really? Someone can just drop that In the middle of a conversation about slurs directed towards people with neurological disorders and everyone’s just going to let it slide?
