John Mayer Is Racist?

| Filed under: John Mayer


Once again proving that he is NOT funny, John Mayer had a surprise stand-up set at The Slipper Room in NYC last week that didn't go so well.

Things only got worse after he interrupted comedian Kumail Nanjiani's set after Nanjiani made a snide comment about seeing stand-up from a pop star.

Mayer then hopped up on stage and made "accidentally racist" comments about Nanjian's ethnicity including purposely mispronouncing his name as "Kabul."

He also went on to pretend that he was masturbating to play on the term "getting off" when he was told to get off the stage!


Nanjiani reportedly kept his cool with the moron and went on to have a successful set.

John really needs to give the stand-up career a rest! When are these celebrities going to learn that just because you're good at one thing doesn't mean you're good at everything.

Maybe put out a fragrance or something instead!

    It's cool his music makes up for his "Only Human" fuck up's….Perez your just mad cause he didn't suck you off!!

  2. 2

    it doesn't surprise me. maybe that specific person just pissed him off.

  3. 3

    So this person Kumail Nanjiani's made fun of him and he said something back…. whats the problem? I am not saying its good to be racist, I am korean myself, but if a comedian can dish it out they should be able to take it to.

  4. 4

    Fuck sand people!

  5. 5

    OMG… he misprounced the guy's name?? Oh, it's the end of the world. If he said something really good, we would have heard about that and not the name thing.

  6. 6

    I still love him.

  7. 7

    I put a lot more stock in Mayer's comic ability then I do in your ability to descern what is and what is not in good taste or is or is not funny.
    You think it is funny to call Samantha R. "saMAN" because she is a lesbian. And you think you are helping the gay community?
    NO, and these obvious vendettas you seem to pick up against certain pop stars are childish and make you look bad.
    Grow up Perez, Mario, or whatever you go by. Grow up.

    perez, funy you should say that… when are celebrities goona learn just because they are good at one thing, doesnt mean they're good at everything!!! haaaaa. This is HILARIOUS says the man who fucking blogs but now has a crappy fashion line, stupid songs they sing, multiple books a year????, radio show, tv shit, hosting, and now a fucking FAHSION website… haaaaa

    so listen bitch, you should stick to writing perez hilton cuz all ur really good is is doodling on peoples faces and making stupid comments. john mayer is honesty one of the most talented musicians out that - albeit a big fucking douchebag… i think hes awesome and amazing musician and you know that as well.

    so to say just cause celebs are good at one thing… fucking stick to this craappy ass blog cuz it was barely good 3 years ago, and now its wrechid. i dont know why i come but i still do. its slightly amuzing, but mayer is fucking talented. so go write another book about OTHER people, sing more shitty songs about STDs even tho u get no ass, design another line for Hot Topic or whatever, and take more lie dectors about making out with Johnny M… have a super productive 2010 and maybe spew less hatred?? maybe?? a little?? ok bitch. bye bye

    this guys has always been a complete douchebag, who is self absorbed with his lame tweets, that you just know he thinks are witty and clever but in realistically arent at all.

  10. 10

    Then maybe you should give writing books and music tours a rest, because you sure suck at both of them!!

  11. Ccar says – reply to this


    I don't get why ppl sign up for this website jsut to be overly rude…… Anyways.. Lets not encourage him to do anything but write songs…. no frgrances, clothing lines, childrens books or acting… I think one way of making millions is plenty.

  12. 12

    Re: skinny bitch – yep has a point

  13. 13

    If Lamebert had pretended to masturbate on stage you would have thought he was brilliant and a true artist, douchebag.

  14. 14

    I don't see how this makes him a racist. The name is not necessarily to easy to pronounce.

  15. 15

    i personally do not find him funny & i think he is douchey & personally I CANNOT respect an artist on any grounds if i dislike their personality

    because everytime i turn their song on i think…omg douche!

  16. 16

    Ooook…so HOW does this make him racist?! You just LOOOOVE to stretch the truth, don't you? Sounds to me like, someone was talkin' smack and he gave it back. Big Deal! And good for him for doing stand up, he IS good at it. he's damned funny! You're just jealous you don't have ONE single talent, Perez!

    Oh yea? Is that why I've never heard of Kabul and John Mayer is a household name. Talent holds up. Get over it?

  18. 18

    HE'S ON THE cover of Details Magazine and looks SO beautiful. Full lips, dark eyes, I like him suddenly.

  19. 19

    This is the point where all good whites and minority supplicants go: "I don't see what's so racist?!"

  20. 20

    Re: obama
    You don't know where Kabul is? You, sir, are an idiot.

  21. 21

    John Mayer is a narcissistic douchebag. No one says "accidental" racist things - it must be the way he talks all the time for it to come out so naturally. Real nice there John.

  22. 22

    I'm not saying his comments are/were excusable in any way, and I know he's not exactly known for his stand-up but I was just wondering:
    Don't most comics (if not all) basically make a living off of making fun of people, from celebrities to the general public. Especially pointing out and making fun of stereotypes of different ethnic groups, and such? ….

  23. 23

    Yes, John Mayer, the Kabbalah Killer strikes again! Whether it be African Americans, Women, Gay People and now People of Middle-Eastern decent, Mayer destroys all! Like Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore & Kirstie Alley& Cruise, they ALL hate Persians, Arabs and Muslims. They are disgusting NO-TALENT NOBODIES THAT ARE SO "OVER" Karma. . . A really Good Thing!

  24. 24

    Why does this idiot even have a career? His whole act is ripping off Stevie Ray Vaughn, even Sevies voice. If anyone doesn`t know who Stevie Ray Vaughn is, go to Youtube and type in Stevie Ray Vaughn in search. He was a blues guitar player who died in 1990 in a helicopter crash. EVERYTHING about Mayer is a complete and utter rip off from this guy. It`s ridiculous, if someone was doing an impersonation of someone more well known like Elvis or Michael Jackson would he get this much attention? Of course not, but because Stevie Ray Vaughn isn`t that well known Mayer gets away with it.

    white people are so fucking racist all of u are white and not even bothered by this. PATHETIC FUCKS

  26. 26

    Then why don't u take that advice and use it!

  27. 27

    So lame Perez (and even lamer staff), John is actually quite funny and if you followed John's career at all you would know this. Everything is so stinkin grandiose with you!!! If your stories have anything to do with supposed homophobia or racism, your all over them, no matter what the context. If I called a white person, who's last name is Johnson, Johnny, am I now a racist too? Keep to interesting stories, not making your stories more interesting.

  28. 28

    Re: RRaaZZ – and your racist towards whites, idiot! Racism is racism!

  29. 29

    hahaha hes such a pathetic excuse for a human being . . . pathetic.

  30. 30

    how the fxck does this make him racist?

  31. 31

    hahaha hes such a pathetic excuse for a human being . . . go die, mayer.
    p.s. your music sucks ass too.

  32. 32

    For the record, Kumail is an amazing comic and John was completely out of line.

  33. 33

    wow and sometimes overweight bloggers should stay behind the computer, just saying

  34. POBR says – reply to this


    I was there…..John Mayer was being a total jerk….Kumail is an amazing talent and you will all know who he is soon enough.

  35. 35

    He actually is funny

  36. 36

    Who is this guy? Regardless, he has that type of douche-y looking face.

  37. 37

    I don't care what anyone says, I think John Mayer is hellllla funny. I just think Perez doesn't like to say good stuff about him because he's not gay and he doesn't go by the name Lady GaGa. Yes John Mayer can come off as a douche, but if you're a fan, then you know that's just how he is, thats his sense of humor.

  38. 38

    It's very rare, but this time I do agree with you, Perez. His ego is out of control and he often acts obnoxious.

  39. 39

    Said the douche who has his own fashion website……………………remember posting about Lara Stone when she was on the W Cover with Kate Moss? She is only one of the most celebrated models of the last two years………………..way to go Mario!

  40. 40

    I cant stand him since he said "texting like a dumb white chick" Fuck him! I didn't know white women have been stero-typed to be dumb & Text!
    FUCK JOHN MAYER, HE IS A FUCKING GEEK!!!!! & everyone texts!!

  42. 42

    Soo, since he refused you Perez, now you're going to, "make him pay" by criticizing everything he does on your site? Grow up please… I'm sure this story was greatly exaggerated by you…

  43. 43

    not racist, just a bit dim

  44. 44

    man i just started liking him again.. he knows better than to say racist shit. It's not hard to insult someone without going there.

  45. 45

    Re: italianvenus – yeah but not in a vindictive way like he would have been doing

  46. 46

    great, just when i was getting back into him.. what a douche.
