As Seen On Facebook | Wow, the autistic hate here from William Shatner. | Eve Reiland

Wow, the autistic hate here from William Shatner.  I’m going to fix his tweet: Autistic people hate Autism Speaks so when Julia the muppet aligned with an Autistic Hate Group on a PSA, Autistic People cut their ties.  That’s what Autistic People do when their civil and human rights are violated.  There, fixed it.
