We are all humans. We make mistakes. Sometimes we don't know any better, but we are thankfully able to learn to become better.


So is the case for author John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars, who fully regrets using the "r" word in his young adult book Paper Towns. He describes the main character Q (short for Quentin) as being "so retarded that he becomes kind of brilliant."

Green recently Tweeted back to a fan who was also disappointed with Green's poor choice in words:

Which Green then replied with:

Can I get a round of applause? So, no worries fans. Green has been extra careful in making sure that the offensive word is left out of the film starring Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff.

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, be sure to check it out below:

I will always celebrate a person's change to better themselves. And it seems Green has done just that. Make sure you check out Paper Towns coming to theaters July 24th.
