As I’ve mentioned before, I *heart* Big Brother. In fact, I’m probably mildly obsessed. That aside, I’m furious right now! On MySpace, I am a member of a group called “Autism Connections”. I woke up this morning and check my MySpace info to find a bulletin from Autism Connections about my beloved Big Brother. (see below)

So I follow the link to YouTube and this is what I find:
(It won’t allow me to embed the video for some reason so please go and watch at the link for yourself.)

CBS AIRED THIS!!!!

I am sickened by this…this…I don’t know what to call him. No real man would call Autistic children retards and then defend the statement by saying “What? I work with them all day, I’ll call them what I want.” or “Well, they are. They’re all retards, it’s not my fault.” Whatever he is, he’s sick. And not in the “oh I kind of pity him, he doesn’t know any better” kind of sick. He’s just a sick, self-centered, narcisstic….ARGH!

So here’s what we do, we contact CBS and complain. True, they have no control over him. However, they have control over their show.

Next, I suggest we contact United Autism Foundation (the Autism Foundation he is a PR rep for) and we complain to them. Again, they have no control over his actions. However, they control his pay checks or the lack thereof. Autism fundraising is struggling to begin with, we don’t need it connected with a schmuck like Adam.
