Why did they remove the word 'Derpy' on MLP?

Is it a bad word for children? Could my little sister walk up to my parents and say 'Look, its Derpy Hooves'? She is 9

it wasn't offensive to mentally handicap people. what the problem was is that kids would use it to make fun of them. derp was commonly used when someone did something stupid or without thinking. what happened is parents complained to mlp because of her name was associated with the word. and sadly, the parents over reacted, and pretty much forced hasbro to remove her from the show. or make her change the name. although, in all things BUT the show, her name is still derpy. and if youre atrue lp fan, she will always remain derpy, no matter what she is called.

Derpy is a pony from my little pony, they shouldn't have removed it at all, unless it's like cursing in some other launguage

It only became offensive after the whole "derp" meme thing got popular. It's gotten to the point where many people associate the word "derp" with mentally handicapped people, usually in a way that's making fun of them.
