I have a wonderful 9 year old son with Autism and he is one of the most pleasant children I have ever been around. While my opinion may be bias because he is my son, I have had other people express the same sentiment including daycare workers. The comments on the show are very offensive because they are attempting to use autism as an insult. Many people would benefit from being more like my son with autism. Autism being used as an insult is just downright ignorant and I almost feel sorry for the writer who wrote the comment because they are unfortunate to not know a child like my son.
Bottom line, if you don't understand something, become informed instead of using the little knowledge you do have as a punch line.

I have a son who is on the spectrum and know how bullying can hurt them. The media needs to stop encouraging this negative behavior.

i have two nieces with autism and the comments offended me immensely. Also, it's outdated to say a person is "Autistic". You say a person with Autism.

I have a niece with Autism and she is the most amazing little girl in the world. To hear how you use the word Autistic is down right rude, wrong and awful. Im truly disappointed.

I have a son with autism. He does not behave in the manner you are stereotyping him. These kids put up with enough bullying throughout their lives, without autism becoming the new reference for 'retard'

I work with children with autism. Individuals with autism are extremely talented and should not be portrayed as having lesser ability or being any less intelligent. They are just like everyone else and are extremely talented. It makes me sad to see such hurtful things being said, just because a lack of knowledge and awareness.
