Bill Maher finally took things way too far, and Chance The Rapper is over it!
On last Friday’s episode of his HBO talk show Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher sat down to chat with Ben Sasse, the Republican senator from Nebraska. Maher is actually originally from Nebraska if you didn’t know. After chatting for a bit, the interview went all the way LEFT and Maher thought it was cute and appropriate to say the N-word.
“I gotta get to Nebraska more,” Maher said.
“You’re welcome. We’d love to have you work in the fields with us,” said Sasse.
Then, Maher stepped in it, “Work in the field?” he said with his signature comedic tone of disgust. “I’m a house n—–.”
Seriously, why?!! Maher has come forward and apologized for his use of the racial slur. He told the New York Times, “Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I’m up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn’t have said on my live show.Last night was a particularly long night as I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment. The word was offensive, and I regret saying it and am very sorry.” You think?!!!
Our favorite Chicago native is saying it’s definitely not enough. Over the weekend, the 24-year old tweeted, “Please @HBO Do Not Air Another Episode Of Real Time With Bill Maher.”

Maher is used to pushing the envelope, and that’s fine, but boldly using the N-word is disrespectful, and ridiculous. This is why other white people think it’s cute to say the word in casual conversation and expect Black people not to react. Honestly, he does need to face some much stronger repercussions for his behavior, and while he’s at it, he needs to sit down and watch Netflix’s Dear White People.
