Bill Maher Says He Regrets Using ‘Offensive’ Racial Slur In Apology

UPDATE: 2:40 p.m. ET ― Following the nonstop criticism, Maher has apologized for using a racial slur on his Friday show. In a statement to HuffPost, he said:

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.  

PREVIOUSLY:

“Inexcusable” and “tasteless.”

Those are the words HBO used Saturday to describe Bill Maher’s use of the N-word on his talk show, “Real Time with Bill Maher.

The host used the offensive word during a segment with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on Friday’s show after he told Maher, “We’d love to have you work in the fields with us.”

Maher replied, “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n****r!”

The comedian told the audience it was a joke, but criticism of his remarks has been relentless, with Maher trending at the top of Twitter throughout the day. 

Now, HBO has released a statement to People, saying, “Bill Maher’s comment last night was completely inexcusable and tasteless.”

The statement adds that HBO will remove the “deeply offensive comment from any subsequent airings of the show.” 

As HuffPost’s Doha Madani points out, this type of controversy isn’t new for Maher. The comedian has a history of making offensive comments, once even comparing Muslim singer Zayn Malik to the Boston Marathon bomber.

Following the “joke” on Friday, many are calling for Maher to be fired from “Real Time.”

Thus far, Maher hasn’t issued a statement on the controversy and his reps have not answered requests for comment.

Scorpions Drummer Jailed: James Kottak Reportedly Sentenced For Offensive Behavior In Dubai

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Newspapers in the United Arab Emirates are reporting that the American drummer for the rock band Scorpions has been sentenced to one month in jail after being convicted of offensive behavior in Dubai.

The government-backed National newspaper reported Tuesday that James Kottak was convicted of insulting Islam, raising his middle finger and being under the influence of alcohol while in transit at Dubai airport. The Gulf News daily says he was arrested April 3 en route from Russia to Bahrain, where the German band was scheduled to perform at a Formula One race. Kottak was a no-show at the April 5 concert.

The newspapers say Kottak admitted to drinking but denied other charges.

The Scorpions’ manager didn’t respond to requests for comment. Kottak’s local lawyer couldn’t immediately be reached.
