Bill Maher's Ex Says He Used The N-Word Regularly


Cube questioned during an interview with Rolling Stone.

The actress says she doesn't know him personally, but she doesn't think he's a racist, but he's probably shocked that people took offense, and his feelings are hurt.

Abdul-Jabbar, yes the very same Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who is the all-time leading scorer and player with the most career wins in National Basketball Association history, says he doesn't think that Maher should be fired for what he did. "Why did you think you could get away with that?"

HBO, which promised to edit out the comment in future airings of the episode, released a statement saying: "Bill Maher's comment last night was completely inexcusable and tasteless".

"Work in the fields?" asked Maher. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) last week, the political commentator jokingly referred to himself as a "house n***er".

Sen. Al Franken, who was also scheduled to appear on the show, has canceled, calling Maher's words "inappropriate and inoffensive". Cube will be promoting the anniversary and re-issue of his album, Death Certificate, but you can definitely expect him to share his thoughts with Maher on his usage of the N-word. There were also claims that Maher verbally abused her with degrading racial comments. Why is this still offensive? Should we use it, shouldn't we use it?' - this, that, and the other.

"You'll see me on there Friday, and I'll say what I gotta say", he continued. It wasn't a cakewalk for a so-called 'house [N-word],' either, unless you like being raped.

This, Abdul-Jabbar said, was an inoffensive use of the N-word. And it's just not amusing, the bully mentality.

"It's just not amusing to diss at least the ones who got it f-ed up", he went on. "And it becomes like a facade of a lot of bullshit". He sums up his point succinctly, adding, "sometimes, you gotta know when to shut up. I am glad Maher, too, recognized as such and issued an apology", Sanders said in an email to The Huffington Post. "Everybody feels like they can make a joke and cross that line". If you put yourself in a position to be viewed in a negative way from the public - with social media being the way that it is - if it's negative, it is going to spread.

"The n-word is not a joke to be thrown about and it is never OK to make light of slavery and/or the experiences of enslaved people".
