re-re

noun; clipping
retard; mentally-handicapped person
 
This word comes the word "retard," and is most commonly used by mean people to call their (non mentally handicapped) friends stupid. It was formed by the clipping of the word retard after the first syllable and then repeating it. The word was probably simply coined by teenagers who were swept up in the abbreviating craze of 2009-2011.
Etymology : The word retard as a name for a mentally handicapped person comes from the definition of retard as meaning slow or delayed. From Latin re+tardus (slow)
Source : October, 2011 conversation. "You are such a re-re." Said after the "re-re" asked how many stars were on the American flag.
