Marlee Matlin has responded to the alleged Trump insult story, which was published by Celebrity Apprentice.
The original source of the article has been asked not to use names for fear of legal retaliation for violating non disclosure agreement.
Marlee, an actress, has issued a statement via twitter condeming Donald Trump’s choice of words, also stating that “the fact that we are talking about this during a very important moment in America history has upset me deeply.”
“I am deaf. There are millions of deaf, and hard-of-hearing people like me in the United States and around the world who face discrimination and misunderstanding on a daily basis, it is unacceptable.”
“It’s not about insults or taking each other down. As a person who is deaf, as a woman as a mom, as a wife, as an actor, I have a voice and I am using that voice to make myself heard and vote.”
Most Americans think Donald Trump’s choice of words are insensitive, especially to people with disabilities which is unacceptable and offensive.
Mark Burnette, the Executive Producer of the Apprentice and the President of MGM, however reiterated that he would not release unaided footage and also went further to say that Donald Trump’s campaign has been full of hatred, division and misogyny.
