Marlee Matlin Responds to Reports Donald Trump Mocked Her For Being Deaf

Marlee Matlin is speaking out after reports surfaced that Donald Trump mocked and demeaned her during her time on Celebrity Apprentice.

According to the Daily Beast, the 51-year-old actress was made fun of for being deaf and called “retarded” by Donald.

“The term is abhorrent and should never be used. The fact that we are talking about this during a very important moment in American history has upset me deeply,” Marlee wrote on her Twitter after reports surfaced.

She added, “So what’s my response? 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’m using that voice to make myself heard…and vote.”
