(ANI): American Idol winner Jordin Sparks apparently has no regrets
about lashing out at MTV Video Music Awards host Russell Brand
after he made fun of Jonas Brothers pledge to remain virgins until
marriage. "It got to a point where she was so peeved she couldn"t
take it anymore. Jordin felt very strongly the issue needed to be
addressed and has no regrets saying what she said," Fox quoted a
source, as saying.
Representatives for Sparks and Brand did not comment on the
matter. Meanwhile, Brand's 'retard cowboy fella' reference towards
President George Bush has also outraged numerous disability groups.
"We don't think the words retard or retarded should be used in
connection with people," Andrew Imparato, the president of the
American Association of People with Disabilities, said.
either word gets used, we find it offensive, don't think it's
funny, and find it similar to the n word in that it has a long and
sordid history and does real harm to the people who have carried
that label historically," he added.
