Kate Gosselin Calls Other Moms The R-Word In A Leaked Email!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad SadKate GosselinGIFs

kate gosselin used r word in 2006 email

This is just awful!!!

Kate Gosselin has been in the news for almost all bad reasons lately, and this is just adding onto the pile.

The Jon & Kate Plus Eight star is the subject of a new tell-all by author Robert Hoffman, who got ahold of some of the mother’s more unflattering moments. Like the time she used the r-word in an email!

Hoffman explains that in an email forwarded by Jon Gosselin, to his ex-wife, from an organization, Kate used some very offensive language toward the group! Hoffman explained:

“On December 31, 2006, Jon forwarded Kate an email that he had received the day before from the coordinator of something called the ‘MOST’ forum. (MOST stands for Mothers of Supertwins.) The forum coordinator, ‘Patti T,’ asked Jon if he would post something to introduce himself and his family on the forum. It is not clear why Patti T’s email annoyed Kate, but her curt response to Jon about it is offensive. Kate said, ‘These people are retarded!’”

Just FYI, using the r-word is NEVER okay!

In response, the Special Olympics gave out their general statement about the issue, saying:

“We’re always saddened and disappointed when we hear people using the R-word. We encourage people to go to R-word.org and take the pledge. It’s important because it’s respect toward everyone.”

We also encourage everyone to never use that word ever! Why would you in the first place!?

Hopefully, since that happened back in 2006, Kate has learned her lesson and no longer uses that awful term.

    I am not defending the inappropriate usage of this word by any means, but just want to point out that the American Association on Mental Retardation and schools were using the word retardation as an appropriate term and definition until 2006, when intellectual disability replaced it.

    Again, her context was inappropriate here, but keep in mind the term was more widely used and accepted as a definition in society through 2006.

    This article is retarded.

  8. B. D. says – reply to this


    Is this all that you idiots can do …. find an email that is 8 years old. You are truly screw balls.

  9. M to the H says – reply to this


    Argh, the word Retard is an actual word which means slow… so yeah, I will use that word as I see fit. I wouldn't call actual mentally disabled people retarded because it does have an insulting quality to it, but for goodness sake it is a real word!!!!

    1480–90; < Latin retardāre to delay, protract, equivalent to re- re- + tardāre to loiter, be slow, derivative of tardus slow; see tardy

    So we also shouldn't say "stupid" "Slow" "silly" "idiot" "dumb"? - but calling someone an F*&^%$# C*&T would be fine though right? Argh. This world.

    The word "retard" has nothing to do with down syndrome whatsoever. It simply means "slow" or "stupid". Get over it and move on.

  11. Biable Dianorga says – reply to this

    Re: maggie – Maggie, I like you. Very soon the use of the spoken and written word will be obsolete. We will be Grunting, swinging our arms, carrying a club and climbing back into a tree. Now that is retarded.

    This shows once again her emotionally abusive behavior and thought process towards others. Isn't one of her own sons developmentally challenged? If so, this choice of the English language is all the more sickening as is her lack of respect for others in general. It's like my grandmother use to say…."thinking it is as bad as saying it out loud"…in this case typing it is too!

  15. bikergirl222 says – reply to this


    seriously? you lecturing about someone else being a bully when you built your existence on bullying and slamming others ! shame shame

  16. SammiD says – reply to this


    This is a "story" about something that happend 8 YEARS AGO!!!!
    Who cares? Get a life!

  17. s says – reply to this


    This story is retarded…as in the definition of retarded: "Delay or hold back in terms of progress, development, or accomplishment: his progress was retarded by his limp." So because a super small number of the population chooses to only recognize the negative, slang, connotation of the word, no one can use it in its proper usage? You people are retarded…in the sense that you hold back the progress of mankind with your stupidity.

    This story is pretty retarded. Get over yourself, has-been.
