Well, Matlin, who is hearing impaired in real life, was allegedly called 'retarded' repeatedly, by Donald Trump.
That's the latest installment of Trump, real person, by the Daily Beast, reporting on the Republican nominee's behavior on the set of the Apprentice, where he made a habit of calling a deaf actress on the show "retarded."
Matlin is the only deaf actress to win the Academy Award for Best Actress.
This is what the Daily Beast reports:
[Trump] would often equate that she was mentally retarded, said one source, who described how kind Matlin and her interpreter Jack Jason were.
During the taping of the show, Trump would often scribble down notes while sitting at the table of the boardroomthe shows primary set.
A person familiar with the notes who helped clean up after tapings said that on one of the pieces of paper, Trump wrote: Marlee, is she retarded??
[Trump] would make fun of her voice. It actually sounded a lot like what he did [to] the New York Times guy, another person who worked on The Apprentice for years told The Daily Beast, referring to when Trump mocked a disabled reporter last year. The source said this incident occurred outside the boardroom, during a break from filming.
Like, to make it seem like she was mentally not there? [It] sounded like he got a real kick out of it. It was really upsetting
In the boardroom, he would talk to her like she was special, the source said.
Oh, Trump also reportedly made inappropriate sexual comments to Matlin on set, which hardly seems like news at this point. Matlin performed at the 2011 roast of Trump on Comedy Central, which is evidence she took Trumps comments pretty well or very badly.
DMK local functionary Lingadurai reportedly made critical remarks about the health condition of Jayalalithaa in an inebriated condition on Sunday night.
AIADMK Councillor James Raj, who was passing by, got angry over the remarks and entered into arguments leading to fisticuffs, police said.
Lingadurai was admitted to the Pollachi government hospital in the early hours of today, claiming assault by the councillor. Raj also was admitted to the same hospital, complaining that Lingadurai had assaulted him, police said.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying, when asked about PM Modi's comments, said China is against "the linking of terrorism to any specific country, ethnicity or religion."
"Everyone knows that India and Pakistan are victims of terrorism. Pakistan has made huge efforts and great sacrifices in fighting terrorism. I think the international community should respect this," the spokesperson added.
The PM's comment was made in Goa to the leaders of BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - as part of his government's diplomatic drive to isolate Pakistan after the September 18 attack on an army base in Uri in Kashmir in which 19 soldiers were killed.China and Pakistan consider each other "all-weather friends" and have close diplomatic, economic and security ties.
Despite counties like the US and Russia supporting India's decision to carry out surgical strikes in Pakistan last month, China, which is building a $46 billion export corridor through Pakistan and parts of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir to the Arabian Sea coast, has been cautious in its comments.
PM Modi met one-on-one with President Xi Jinping in Goa, but China remains adamant on two issues crucial for India: China has not softened its stand against India entering the 48-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group; it is also still blocking India's request for a UN ban on Masood Azhar, who heads terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.

India is against Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, but does not hate" its people, the minister said and offered help to conduct anti-terrorism campaign in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir for the "closure of terror factories".
The Home Minister's attack on Pakistan comes a day after Prime Minsister Narendra Modi dubbed it as the mothership of terrorism.
Two militant outfits in Pakistan have detailed a chat about Arnab Goswami and the eight-page conversation in Urdu was provided by Military Intelligence to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs according to highly placed Army sources in South Block, New Delhi. His security is likely to be looked after by the Maharashtra government.
Joint Secretary in the Union Home Ministry had sought help from DGP Maharashtra to provide 20 policemen to Goswami round-the-clock.
Four police guards will be posted at his house and four will be in his office. Goswami will now have to share his schedule of engagements with the police and all visitors will be frisked.
Goswami is not the first journalist to get security cover from the Centre. Before him, journalists such as Zee Newss Sudhir Chaudhary (X category), Samachar Pluss Umesh Kumar (Y category) and Ashwini Kumar Chopra (Z Plus category) have been provided security by the government.
The outfit, Sangharsh, had accused the organisers of playing with the nationalist sentiment of people of India, at a time of tension with Pakistan after the Uri terror attack. They had also sought police permission to protest over the screening of the 1958 Pakistani film at the 18th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star, which begins from October 20.
"Given the current situation, the Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival with Star has decided not to programme 'Jago Hua Savera' as part of the Restored Classics Section," organisers of the festival said in a statement. Directed by AJ Kardar, "Jago Hua Savera" was selected as the entry from Pakistan for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 32nd Academy Awards in 1960.
The film was co-produced during the days of undivided Pakistan (now independent Pakistan and Bangladesh) and shot in Dhaka. It tells the tale of life in a small fishing village where everyone dreams of owning their own boat. The film was set to be screened in the 'restored classic' section of the festival, which is chaired by superstar Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao.
The 18th edition of the festival will be held from October 20-27 in which over 180 films from 54 countries would be screened at several spots across the megapolis.

Acting on a tip off, a team of Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) on Saturday raided a house near Sheikhupura bypass where nine to ten members of banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were hiding. They tried to escape by using a car and two motorcycles and were chased up to a branch road where they opened fire at the cops, forcing the security personnel to retaliate, the CTD spokesperson said. "When the shootout ended, six of the terrorists were dead and the rest had fled," the spokesperson was quoted as saying by 'Dawn'.

This is particularly significant, because The Nation is a newspaper considered close to the Pakistani government as well as the military establishment. And in the context of Prime Minister Narendra Modi sparing no efforts to continually highlight cross-border terror attacks - yesterday he alluded to Pakistan as the " mothership of terror " - Pakistan's own media stepping in to rap its government's knuckles could well be a sign that civil society there is rattled, following the Uri attack in India and its global condemnation.
Citing the fact that even Pakistan's so-called strategic ally, China, has expressed concern about inaction on terror, the editorial says that the government needs to indiscriminately crack down on all non-state terror actors, and back its words with action.
"Modi's statement shows just how committed New Delhi is when it comes to isolating Pakistan globally. From cancelling the Saarc summit to boycotting Pakistani artistes, the Modi regime is hell-bent on weakening Pakistan at every international forum... When and if isolated, the impact would be drastic, and Pakistan would never want that," says the editorial.

In a statement released by Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Aziz said that "Modi is misleading his BRICS and BIMSTEC colleagues", after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that Pakistan is the 'mothership of terrorism" Aziz alleged that the Indian leadership was desperately trying to hide what he termed as "brutalities" in Kashmir."
The UN and OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) have rejected Indian attempts to equate Kashmiris' movement for self-determination with terrorism," the adviser remarked, adding that the United Nations has repeatedly emphasised that people fighting for their self-determination cannot be categorised as terrorists by the occupying state.
Aziz further said that Pakistan joins all the members of BRICS and BIMSTEC in condemning terrorism and reaffirms its full commitment to fight the menace of terrorism without discrimination.
He alleged that Pakistan is a victim of "Indian interference and subversive activities", which are aimed at destabilising the country.
Prime Minister Modi, while addressing the BRICS Summit yesterday, launched a veiled attack at Pakistan saying, "Tragically, the mother-ship of terrorism is a country in India's neighbourhood."

"As per indications available from the markets of different states, as of now there seems to be an expect decline of about 30 per cent in consumption of Chinese products on this Diwali in comparison to last year which in itself would be a strong indication to China and other countries as far as the consumption of Chinese goods in India is concerned," the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) said in a statement.
