Denis Leary has written a new book called “We We Suck: a Feel-Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid.”

The book features many of the thoughts of the star of Rescue Me.

In the book, he blames the rise in autism on “inattentive mothers and competitive dads.”

The New York Posts’ Page Six revealed the full excerpt from the book.

“There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can’t compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks … to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons.”

The Autism Society of America has responded negatively to the statements.
