The Normal Stuff of Legends
Natalie. 17. USA. "Oh well look at you, tiny Nat, barbies shoes nat, little kid potter, traversing the grass for interyard travels to ant hills. Not everyone inherited enough money to buy out Polly pocket when their parents died."-Becca This is the place I used to list my fandoms and obsessions. It was getting a little out of hand. I like a lot of things.  Saved. No survivors.

"ladies and gentlemen, i will be your narrator. my name is aurora borealis! there are over four hundred stars in our galaxy, maybe more. no one knows for sure. many have said the universe is even larger than the indian ocean. that is why it is called infinitum staroctopusium. ah yes, our glorious constellations, take a look. over here we have one with a guy holding some sort of thing. over here, our beloved olympic rings, all seven of them. and here’s one with a fish."

All that practice and no wedding.

You had to remind us of that part, didn’t you?

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?

Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?

So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.

^^^^^

Explanation for puzzled USians: in the UK ‘spastic’ was used as a normal informal medical term for cerebral palsy, giving rise, for example, to the charity ‘The Spastic Society’. However, ‘spastic’ then came to be used as an ableist insult in precisely the same way that ‘retarded’ is used in the US, to the point that it was dropped entirely as a neutral term. (20 years ago The Spastic Society changed their name to SCOPE, reflecting the fact that the term had been entirely co-opted as a slur.)

as a US person I can confirm that I never knew this was a slur, and Weird Al did a great job recognizing and apologizing for his ignorance.

Gonna have to edit that out of my vocabulary from now on. It is good to know.
