David, Thank you for your comment but we choose not to repeat the comment as it may well offend readers.
I think we can guess what the comment was. A slur, by the way, is something done to someone else. You can’t slur yourself. The comment about ‘working for greater inclusion and acceptance’ is a bit pointless in this situation but these kinds of lines are trotted out at every opportunity, even though it is sort of stating the obvious. No one these days would publicly say that they are working for the opposite of these things.
