Chance the Rapper Asks HBO to Fire Bill Maher Over Racial Slur

Chance the Rapper doesn’t think Bill Maher deserves to keep his job at HBO after he used a racial slur live on the air.

“Please @HBO. Do not air another episode of Real Time with Bill Maher,” the Grammy-winning rapper wrote on Twitter on Saturday (June 3), the day after the episode aired.

HBO has condemned Maher‘s actions and has said the slur will be edited out of future broadcasts of the episode. No word yet on if he’ll be disciplined for his words.

DO YOU THINK
Bill Maher should be fired for saying the N-word on TV?

    I get that he is not supposed to use the word and why it’s seen as racist. but if you dont want people to call you a certain name, stop calling yourself that name.

  • plez

    So agree. Rappers started using the word under the premise that by using the word it would the sting out of it. Well obviously that failed. So everyone needs to stop using it.

  • VanityInsecurity

    So you are calling for a white man to be fired for a word that you most likely use hundreds of times on a daily basis. If black folks can use it so can white ppl. stop with the double standards & then scream about wanting more diversity. equality isn’t subjective.

    I’m a lifelong liberal myself and I am so freaking sick of this ultra PC stuff. Enough. Yes it was a stupid joke. No, he isn’t automatically racist and shouldn’t lose his career for it.

    I am so sick of people pulling the race card. We strive for a society where we don’t see color or sexual orientation yet quite often the people who might be subject to discrimination might be the biggest hypocrites of all.

    Bill Maher should only be punished for using the word after every single black person on HBO stops using the word as well. Including comedians in their comedy specials. You cannot tell a white person not to use a word that is so widely used by blacks. THAT’S racist.

  • Gentle

    Blacks have taken the n word and turned it into an empowering colloquialism. But others use the n word only as a joke. No one uses the words chinks, spicks, or terrorists jokingly. If you are not black, nor raised by parents born before desegregation then you have no understanding or depth on how to properly use the n word. Point blank if you are not a racist then you wouldn’t be arguing so hard for non blacks to use the word.

  • Gentle

    Not all blacks are the same and not all blacks care to use the n word. But until you understand the phrase “generational curse” you could never fathom a black mother calling her 6 year old daughter a little b$@ch. or calling her 10 year old son a punk a$$. It not right. But it won’t change over night. These women were raised by oppressed black men and women decades ago and the n word to you seems like just another funny racial slur. When in actuality its more of a mentality. A mentality that you should be so fortunate not to have.
