Bill Maher Apologizes for Using Racial Slur During HBO Show

Share

As the two were talking about adults dressing up for Halloween - relevant in regards to Sasse's release - Maher seemed to have liked the fact that Nebraska adults don't dress up for the holiday the way adults do in California.

Maher's publicists did not respond to an email seeking comment. "I'm not being sexist, I'm just saying that men, when we argue, we're kind of a one-trick pony - we try our thing, and then we sulk when we don't get our way".

Maher used the offensive word after Sasse invited him to visit Nebraska and work in the fields.

His network disagreed, ripping the comment in a statement Saturday as "tasteless" and vowing to cut it from any subsequent airings of the episode.

"I believe that Bill Maher's comment was inexcusable and inappropriate and he should not have said it and I'm pleased he has apologized for making that remark", he told CNN's Ana Cabrera. Quipped Maher. "No, it's a joke".

"Free speech comes with a responsibility to speak up when folks use that word". Maher shot back saying "Work in the fields?" In a series of tweets Saturday, Sasse talked about how he should've reacted.

The czar's 1717 visit paved the way for diplomatic, economic and cultural exchanges between France and Russian Federation . The Versailles exhibition commemorates a visit to France 300 years ago by Peter the Great, known for his European tastes.

HBO issued an additional statement, explaining that they will edit the racial slur from repeats of Maher's show.

Live during an interview last night, erstwhile thorn in the liberal side and inexplicably famous white guy Bill Maher used the n-word in a truly unfunny moment of banter.

HBO also came out and condemned Bill Maher's N-word slur.

Hulk Hogan took exception to Maher's recent remarks. It's therefore an attack on the American Creed.

On social media, people called on HBO to cancel Maher's show. He was sacked from his ABC show "Politically Incorrect" in 2002 after he said the 9/11 hijackers showed courage in crashing planes into buildings, which he contrasted with US military personnel "lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away". "That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, (it's) not cowardly".
