Rosie O’Donnell revealed one of her secrets on today’s Rosie Show. She has anxiety and fear surrounding little people.
In other news, Chelsea Handler revealed that she rescued little person Chuy from a life of porn!
Rosie needs to realize that little people are just like you and me.
See. Nothing to be afraid of.
Update: A commentator from DISboards.com perhaps said it best:
Another member adds, “She has anxiety around little people. She didn’t say she wanted them all dead.”
In fact, I think Rosie did a good thing. She brought attention to the gentlemen Peter Dinklage mentioned in his Golden Globe speech: Martin Henderson.
Martin Henderson is a 37-year-old aspiring actor who was thrown to the ground by an assailant outside a bar in England, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The assault, allegedly inspired by a “dwarf tossing” competition, left Henderson with a fractured arm and issues with standing, he told the Telegraph. He may be permanently confined to a wheelchair.
Both Dinklage and Henderson were born with achondroplasia, a disorder that causes dwarfism.
