Hot on the heels of homophobic comments he made in January that enraged the public, Juan has done it again — this time mocking the mentally disabled.
On Thursday Juan Pablo retweeted an insensitive joke made by a fan that read:
"Not every flower can save love, but a rose can. Not every plant survives thirst, but a cactus can. Not every retard can read, but look at you go, little buddy! Today you should take a moment and send an encouraging message to a f**ked up friend, just as I've done. I don't care if you lick windows, or interfere with farm animals. You hang in there cup cake, you're f**king special to me, you're my friend, look at you smiling at your phone! You crayon eating bastard you!"

He even went on to claim that in his home country of Venezuela, "retard" is not an offensive word.

The season finale of The Bachelor airs on Monday, March 10.
