*Update: Just moments after this posting went up Arrested Development removed their "Tranny" advert from their facebook page!.
Arrested development is using this defamation on it's facebook page in a cheap promotional stunt aimed to outrage the transgender community by pandering to transphobic people hoping to pick the show up off the cutting room floor.
"Since its debut in 2003, the series has received widespread critical acclaim, including six Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe, and it has attracted a cult following, including several fan-based websites. In 2007, Time listed it among the magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME." In 2008, the show was ranked 16th on Entertainment Weekly's "New TV Classics" list.In 2011, IGN named Arrested Development the funniest show of all time."Its a lowlife cheap ploy to get attention and its, not humorous or even acceptable.
"Despite acclaim from critics, Arrested Development received low ratings and viewership on Fox, which canceled the series in 2006. Rumors of a fourth season and a feature film persisted until 2011, when Netflix agreed to license new episodes and distribute them exclusively on its streaming video service. Fifteen brand new episodes will be released simultaneously on May 26, 2013. The script of an Arrested Development film has also been in development, with the main cast purported to reprise their original roles." wiki/Arrested_Development

Apparently this wasn't the first time "Arrested Development" used a blatant transphobic meme to get a cheap laugh. From the "Sad Sack" episode. Maeby gives her mother a 'shemale' Tee shirt and convinces her to proudly wear it.
The 'joke' was on her mother because everyone then thought she was transgender. The 'joke' in reality is transexuality. This is so deeply rooted in misogynistic transphobia and wrong on so many levels.
