When Bill Maher thought it was funny to call himself a "house n*gger", black twitter went crazy. Even Chance the Rapper had something to say about it.
Now, rapper Ice Cube will get to go toe-to-toe with Bill Maher on Friday to discuss the situation.
According to Tha CelebriTea:
The dialogue between the HBO host and rapper is most certainly a conversation not to be missed, especially in light of Cube’s liberal use of the n-word in his music over the years.
While Cube will be in attendance for the show’s next episode, TMZ reports that Senator Al Franken decided to cancel his appearance after Bill Maher’s joke snafu.
Last Friday, Maher publicly joked that he was a “house n*gger” in response to guest Senator Ben Sasse in a conversation where the senator urged the comedian to “work in the fields” for his state, Nebraska.
In light of the remark causing media backlash, Maher apologized for his comment, calling his joke “offensive.”
