Conservative political commentator and constant provocateur Ann Coulter sparked outrage when she referred to President Obama as a 'retard' after the third and final debate.
Her harsh Twitter message was greeted with a thoughtful, lengthy open letter from a Special Olympics athlete who condemned her actions in the kindest way.
John Franklin Stephens, a 30-year-old athlete with Downs Syndrome, wrote that he urged Coulter to apologize for her statement.
Attacks: John Franklin Stephens wrote an open letter to Ann Coulter after she used a slur
‘Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?’ he wrote.
Stephen’s response comes after Coulter tweeted her support of Mitt Romney’s behavior during the third debate but in a way that he likely did not appreciate.
‘I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard,’ she wrote Monday night immediately after the debate.
Coulter, who has nearly 270,000 Twitter followers, was unapologetic and went on to use the word again the next day, this time using President Obama’s campaign quip ‘Romnesia’ alleging that his Republican competitor forgets his positions.
‘Obama: "Stage 3 Romneysia" - because cancer references are HILARIOUS. If he's "the smartest guy in the room" it must be one retarded room,’ she wrote the next day.
