Marlee Matlin has responded to the reports that Donald Trump made fun of her and called her names during her time on Celebrity Apprentice.
Several sources allegedly came forward and told the Daily Beast the Republican presidential candidate often mimicked the deaf, Oscar-winning actress, repeatedly calling her "retarded" and demeaning her.
Matlin responded to the reports on Twitter Friday, posting a statement that read: "Recent media reports have circulated that Donald Trump allegedly referred me to as 'retarded,'" she began. "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."
