Ugh. 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?
