Denis Leary is an ASS!


He is blaming parents for the brain disorder, Autism, in his new book, "Why We Suck: a Feel-Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid," the New York Post's Page Six reported.

"There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can't compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks ... to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons," the "Rescue Me" star writes, calling such children "stupid" or "lazy" rather than autistic.

The Autism Society of America called the claims "ridiculous."

"For Mr. Leary to suggest that families or doctors conspire to falsely diagnose autism is ridiculous. ... [His] remarks reflect the same misconceptions of autism being caused by bad or unemotional parenting that were held over 50 years ago," the society responded, according to the New York Post.

In the book, Leary also rips on Dr. Phil, Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, as well as Hillary Clinton.

I have always liked his comedy, especially the Red Sox stuff. This is just ridiculously uncalled for and I urge you not to buy his new book.

You're just now figuring this out? LOL - Leary makes fun of the handicapped, cancer victims and just about every other group he can think of all in the name of "comedy" - he also smokes 2 packs a day in this age when even a child knows it will kill you, so how smart can he be.

Yes, he's funny.....but at the expense of others? He could come up with intelligent, oversational humor but he can't be bothered so he takes the easy route of picking on people who are too weak to defend themselves. He's a bully. Now THAT's lazy and stupid....
