We are highly offended by the way "Celebrity Apprentice" contestants referred to and treated the dwarfism community on the April 5th episode.
We ask that NBC remove the April 5th "Celebrity Apprentice" viral video from its website.
We ask that NBC, The Trump Organization, and Mark Burnett Productions partner with Little People of America and the dwarfism community in order to establish a positive outreach and advocacy program to raise positive awareness of little people.
Little People of America (LPA) is a national non-profit support organization for people with dwarfism and their families, representing thousands of people across the country. As part of the disabled population, people with dwarfism have worked hard to navigate social and physical barriers in order to become full participants and contributors of their communities. Today, people with dwarfism are employed as teachers, social workers, entertainers, lawyers, doctors and scores of other professions. In addition, thousands of people with dwarfism are striving to positively impact all communities in accepting and embracing difference.
