Remove “retard” and “retarded” hashtags from Instagram

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

“Retard” is an ableist slur that is incredibly offensive to people with disabilities and the people that care about them. It is an outdated word that belittles and dehumanizes people with disabilities. Eliminating this word from our society’s vocabulary is about respecting all people. It’s inappropriate to have this word and related words be hashtags on Instagram. Tell Instagram to ban any hashtag with the word “retard” or “retarded” in it and demand respect for people with disabilities.
