'The Little Couple' sneak peek: Bill explains why the word 'midget' is offensive
"A friend of mine runs a show called 'Focus on Abilities,' and he invited me to be one of his guests to talk a little bit about having a disability and career opportunities and some of the obstacles I've had to overcome," he explains.
He tells a story about how a story about how a prospective employer yelled at an underling for balking at his height rather than looking at his qualifications, and explains why "the m-word" is offensive.
"Why is the m-word, midget, a bad word? It's more the fact that nobody's ever said it to me or anybody I know where they were referring to me in a positive light and that being a compliment," he explains.
"The Little Couple" airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
