Juan Pablo Galavis Raises Eyebrows on Twitter

He’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, and Juan Pablo Galavis re-posted a completely inappropriate tweet from a fan on Twitter on Thursday (March 6).

The “Bachelor” star shared, "Not every flower can save love, but a rose can. Not every plant survives thirst, but a cactus can. Not every r-----d 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!"

After posting the message, Juan added the comment, "JAJAJAJAJA LOVED IT..." despite the fact that it was totally offensive to persons with mental handicaps.

And following a firestorm of criticism, Galavis deleted the tweet and posted a defense- "I'm BLESSED to speak SPANISH, an OK english and a LITTLE bit of portuguese... For those who DON'T I recommend to LEARN... #Culture."

"Yeap, an OK english, my WRITING is HORRIBLE but some of you already UNDESTAND me with all my MISTAKES... People, try to be HAPPY and enjoy JOKES and SARCASM... In Venezuela the R word is USED commonly and by NO means is to OFFEND anyone... #Relax #DifferentCulture #Respect."

He added, "Some people need to TRAVEL and get around the WORLD... The US is a GREAT country but there is a LOT out there... #openyourmind #learnculture."
