After contestants in an April episode of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice created a detergent ad called “Jesse James and the Midgets,” miniature activists from Little People of America went to the Federal Communications Commission to ban the use of the word “midget” on broadcast TV, claiming the word is just as offensive as racial slurs.

The contestants on the show, including Joan Rivers, who believes the sub-species is created in midget-mills and survives off a strict diet of sugar packets and Keebler brand cookies suggested bathing little people in detergent and hanging them up to dry.

The Detroit Free Press reports that “calls to the FCC and Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump were not immediately answered today. NBC Universal representatives didn’t immediately respond to e-mail messages, and the telephone rang unanswered at their Los Angeles office.”

Until someone decides to answer their phone, we suggest using more appropriate terms such as, Pocket-Pal, Tiny-Timber, or Lenny Loompa.

Jack In The Box‘s commercial midgetploitation was not deemed offensive by Little People of America because “at the end of the day, work is work. The burgers are just the right size and really are that good.”

    The only reason why they are making a sink is for money.

    Where does it stop with the censorship? Pretty soon, saying just ANYTHING to anyone will be deemed as "offensive". The people in this country have gotten so thin skinned it's sickening.
