Bill Maher Taking Flak Again for Racially Charged Joke

Jul 7, 2017  •  Post A Comment

“Bill Maher is once again under fire for a racially insensitive joke, this time about North Korea and women who work in nail salons,” EW.com reports. “A month after the ‘Real Time’ host sparked outrage by using the N-word on air, Maher tweeted Friday, ‘This N Korean thing is getting tense! I mean, I think it is, I’m on vaca. The ladies at my nail salon are freaking out, that’s what I know!’”

The joke drew a number of critical comments on Maher’s Twitter account. Among them:

  • “Is this another racial slur??! Maybe you should stay on vacation indefinitely!”
  • “I love Bill Maher but he needs to scale back on the racist jokes a bit. This isn’t 1995.”

EW adds: “Maher has long been known for his provocative sense of humor but recently acknowledged crossing a line amid his N-word controversy last month. A week after uttering the slur in a joke gone wrong, Maher apologized on the air and candidly discussed race, comedy, and white privilege with author and sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson.”

  1. Guy’s a smug flaming a**hat who honestly doesn’t know better. He thinks comedy is a shield from criticism because it’s “funny.”

  2. Bill wants to get more attention than Trump and this is the only way he can get attention. If you really want to shut him down cancel your HBO account. If enough people drop their HBO account, he will lose his platform.

  3. Who really cares? He is on HBO.

  4. Let’s all tell some “Jew” jokes. That way, everyone will be happy.
