'Bachelor' Juan Pablo Offends Fans Again for What HAS to Be the Last Time

Juan Pablo Galavis and Clare CrawleyUgh. Are you kidding me? I know we really shouldn't be all that shocked or anything, but Juan Pablo Galavis made another offensive comment, basically destroying any hope that was left of him actually having fans by the end of his season of The Bachelor.

He's pulled the language barrier card over and over again to dig himself out of sticky situations, and up until now, I've sort of bought the excuse. A little bit. (I mean, have you heard his English? It's really not great.)

But this time, he went and used the dreaded "R" word -- and I'm really not sure he's going to be able to recover from this one.

Here's how it all went down. Juan P. retweeted this "joke" that was posted by a fan.

Not every flower can save love, but a rose can. Not every plant survives thirst, but a cactus can. Not every retard 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!

And then all hell broke lose, because his retweet was accompanied by, "JAJAJAJAJA LOVED IT …"

(Wait. He loved it? I thought he didn't even understand it. Whatever.)

As you can imagine, people went nuts after seeing this -- but then he dug himself into an even deeper hole by trying to defend himself.

First he reminded everyone that English isn't his thing. And then he told people they need to chill out and "enjoy jokes and sarcasm." Then he followed up with this little gem:

Relax? Um. Ok.

Let me see if I have this straight. According to Juan Pablo, referring to gay people as "more pervert" isn't offensive. And neither is calling someone a retard.

Got it. (Ess ok.)

At this point, the dude should probably just quit while he's ahead and skip the "After the Final Rose" special all together -- because he's going to be absolutely torn to pieces.

Heck, he might want to think about taking a little vaca from the U.S. at least until The Bachelorette starts and we have a new person to obsess over and loathe.

I hear Venezuela is nice this time of year. (Just a suggestion.)

Are you offended by Juan Pablo's latest comment?

Oh, my. No, I'm not offended by his comment. He didn't post a picture of a mentally handicapped person, he didn't refer to someone specifically. People love to hate him, so he's screwed no matter what he says or does. People need to stop being so sensitive over everything.

He can't speak English. He's not a true American. And he's gay which would be ok if he came to terms with it, but he hasn't. Just deport this loser.

Sorry. Folks. not quite sure all the fuss is about. I think he had guts to go up against all those gals. Did like Renee tho. The hullabaloo is just what appears to keep ABC happy. - re: DWTS and Brooke Burke. and All My Children. Liked Jake til he hooked up with the vengeful "blond". Hard too watch since Many have already made their choice and are couples behind the scenes. Hope Chris finds a great gal for him

It was funny. And retard had more than one meaning plus if I'm not calling someone with mental difficulties a retard how am i offending someone?

I don't care for him really but honestly it's clear he does not have command of the English language. His missteps are no different than how people, including you, keep making fun of his speech with the "ess ok" comments. You're no better.

the proper way to address that is mentally changelled, what is this guy thinking? biggest disappointment yet and how long has he been in the United States? "LOSER" But its OK!!! lol

People get over it! Is that all (you) have to think about....the "R" word, the "N" word, the "F" word...the "whatever" word". People should be thinking more about the economy and how "we" are going to get out of the "mess" that this country is in.

To the people saying that it's not a big deal and that we need to get over it: I'm guessing you don't have children or family memebers with special needs. All three of my children have special needs and one of my sons may not be able to ever live independently as an adult. Have you ever seen the tears and hurt on a sweet little boys face because someone called him the r-word? Have you seen how much pain it causes? Using the R-word doesn’t just hurt people with intellectual disabilities, but it also hurt their friends and families. The thing is, when you use the R-word as slang, you really are hurting people with intellectual disabilities because of the negative connotation of your comment. The R-word has been associated with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities since its inception, so when you use the word in a negative context, you’re putting down people with intellectual disabilities, regardless of if you mean to or not. I'm done with Juan Pablo-- he's crossed the line.

ZenMama3 - Bingo! Thank you for your wise words!!!

ZenMama3 - Well spoken. He's used his "language barrier" excuse once too often. Yes - this is a big deal. To those who think it isn't, shame on you !! If you had a mentally challenged family member, you'd feel quite differently. When he was named the Bachelor, I thought, Great !! Now - my opinion of him has drastically changed.
