After immense collective rage over Donald Sterling urging his hooker to pull back on the color Instagram photos, America had to take a break and dry its holier-than-thou powder. Everybody missed the weird chubby dude on American Idol dropping the R-bomb. Caleb Johnson was kind of pissed that the fans on Twitter voted to compel him to sing Aerosmith's I Don't Want to Miss a Thing. I can't blame mini-Meatloaf for not wanting to flap his fleshy jowls to that that particularly shitty song. But he went and ripped on the American Idol fans on Twitter with an incredible disregard for socially sensitive language:
Twitter gives access to a bunch of retards to talk to me. I don't really enjoy having to see somebody telling me what song I have to sing.Oh, no you didn't, Caleb. You can't call the Twitter retards a bunch of retards. Inane privileged rejects who suck at sports, maybe, but retards? Who gave this kid media training? Not the same people who got him to fudge out an apology shortly thereafter.
For the record that juvenile comment I made in the interview was not directed towards my fans but to the wackos that send hundreds of hate messages a day to me! You guys are amazing and I cannot thank you enough for your support. Sorry if it offended anybody it was the wrong choice of words.Nice try, Caleb. But you've been branded an insensitive.
