Bill Maher is no stranger to controversy, however, on Friday night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, he crossed a line. There are just some things white people don’t do.
During an interview with Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska), Maher responded to a comment made by Sasse, by calling himself a “house n*gger.”
The internet immediately responded, many with outrage.
Bill Maher went from talking down to Cornell West to proclaiming to be a "House N*gger"… My don't they grow up fast? https://t.co/0uJhvWn4tc

Maybe don't be the white guy that tries to explain why it was okay for Bill Maher to say the n-word.

Some defended him.
Bill Maher & Eminem are the only 2 that get the "N- word pass"

Maher’s latest offense follows a heated exchange he had with recent guest Dr. Cornel West, in which he pointed his finger in West’s face.
