The son of the main characters has cerebral palsy, and there are scenes of him being addressed as such by bullies and antagonists. One more intense example is a group of boys mocking him in a store but (spoilers) the main bully gets his ass beat. Characters generally react negatively to the slurs use.

YES. (So far) it's in S01E01, S01E07, S02E02, S02E04. Mostly used by Maddy and few other characters who are pretty flawed

A few minutes from the end the last episode of season 3, when homelander is in a crowd of his supporters, a protestor is called a variation of the r slur. mute & turn off captions from 57:22-57:24 and you won't see/hear it. the dialogue isn't important so you won't miss anything. (SPOILERS) if you wanna be extra safe and skip it, a protestor calls homelander a fascist and throws a can at his kid, so homelander lasers the guy's head off and everyone cheers.

Too many instances to count but mostly in the episodes where the disabled boy Timmy is involved, he is referred to it directly as a slur.

I can't list all the examples in early seasons but season 3 episode 9 has the r slur in the title of the episode as well as the description. do not watch this episode for sure if the r word triggers you.

The R slur is used mere minutes into the film, I do not remember it being used again. As for the R word, not in this film. However sexual assault Contant is riddled throughout it.

Used against two different people with down syndrome but not while they are in the room or directly to them, just while referring to them in a mostly well intended way.

at around 15:30, bianca says to kat ‘can’t you just find some blind, dead, r*tard to take you to the movies so i can have one date?’ during an argument. if this is triggering to you i’d recommend stopping when kat walks up the stairs, and replaying when she starts talking again.

S1E9 Rick says he would’ve become “r*tarded” if Satan’s plan succeeded, Morty chastises him for this but Rick alleges that he would’ve “literally become mentally r*tarded.” Morty than alleges that neurotypical people have tabooed the slur to “feel better about themselves” so make of that what you will.
