This was cut.

  • Dude, Not Funny!: The film had some sort of record for use of slurs on those with disabilities. Support groups and the disabled were angry and pushed for the banning of such offensive terminology, with the word being very much cut down if not virtually extinguished in future media.

A little research shows that yes Tropic Thunder was responsible for the virtual elimination of the term on the grounds of hate speech. What trope can we put this under to address this?
