Comedian and overlord Bill Maher found himself in hot water over the weekend after he used a racial slur in a joke on his HBO show. During a conversation with the Nebraska senator Ben Sasse (R) Maher showed what a badass he was when Sasse invited him to come to his home country and “work in the fields”.
“Work in the fields?” Maher replied “Senator, I am a ****** house.”
HBO promised on Saturday to remove the offensive word from future broadcasts, and Maher issued an apology:
Friday nights are always my worst night sleep because I’m figuring out what I should or shouldn’t have said on my live show. Last night was a particularly long night because I regret the word I used in live moment banter. The word was offensive and I regret saying it and I’m so sorry.
But for a pro wrestling legend with twenty-four inch pythons, bro, that just wasn’t good enough.
hulk hogan took to Twitter to sub-tweet about the controversy:
Hogan was ousted from his WWE job in July 2015 (although he’ll be back soon) after comments made in a secretly recorded cuckold sex tape were leaked following a legal battle with website Gawker. Speaking to a radio host’s wife Bubba the Love Spongewho Hogan had sex with in the video, Hogan had the following to say about his daughter’s relationship with a black man.
I don’t know if Brooke was fucking the black man’s son. I mean, I don’t have any double standards. I mean, I’m racist, up to a point, fucking ******s. But then, when it comes to nice people and shit, and whatever. I mean, I’d rather if she was going to fuck a ******, I’d rather she marry an 8 foot tall ****** worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. Damn ******.
Does Hogan feel like Maher is getting off too easily? Maybe he feels like Maher is getting a better deal than him. Maybe his bandanas are too tight. Or maybe he’s working on a shoot himself, bro.
Either way, maybe, just maybe, the Hulkster should have stayed out of the ring for this one.
