OMG. WTF is wrong with this guy? The Bachelor. Juan Pablo Galavis laughs at a joke from one of his fans that uses the R word, and then calls the people who are offended “uncultured.” He’s got to be kidding. But sadly, he’s not.
The Bachelor star retweeted a fan Thursday who shared an insensitive joke that made fun of people with mental handicaps. It read: “Not every flower can save love, but a rose can. Not every plant survives thirst, but a cactus can. Not every r—–d can read, but look at you go, little buddy! Today you should take a moment and send an encouraging message to a f–ked up friend, just as I’ve done. I don’t care if you lick windows, or interfere with farm animals. You hang in there cup cake, you’re f–king special to me, you’re my friend, look at you smiling at your phone! You crayon eating bastard you!”
When he retweeted the user, he added, “JAJAJAJAJA LOVED IT…” His comment has since been deleted.
Of course, he blames it on the “language barrier” claiming the word “retard” is a perfectly acceptable word in Venezuela. Huh? Venezuelans are in the habit of using offensive English language slurs, and no one bats an eye? OK then.
Galavis went on to defend himself, tweeting, “I’m BLESSED to speak SPANISH, an OK english and a LITTLE bit of portuguese… For those who DON’T I recommend to LEARN… #Culture.” He continued, “Yeap, an OK english, my WRITING is HORRIBLE but some of you already UNDESTAND me with all my MISTAKES… People, try to be HAPPY and enjoy JOKES and SARCASM… In Venezuela the R word is USED commonly and by NO means is to OFFEND anyone… #Relax #DifferentCulture #Respect.”
The reality star and single dad then told his followers, “Some people need to TRAVEL and get around the WORLD… The US is a GREAT country but there is a LOT out there… #openyourmind #learnculture.”
Let’s review. Those of you who find the use of a word widely considered offensive and a slur, ARE JUST A BUNCH OF UNCULTURED HICKS WHO NEED TO GET OUT OF THEIR HOUSES ONCE IN A WHILE. Juan Pablo is an idiot. Between this, the slut shaming and calling LGBT people “perverts,” it’s no wonder ABC didn’t cast him on Dancing with the Stars. And that contestant, Andi Dorfman called him an asshole. Which, apparently, he is.
