Whoopi Goldberg Isn't Mad At Bill Maher For Saying The N-Word — But Not Everyone On The View Agrees!

no title

Are you white and longing for the freedom to say the n-word without social backlash? Don't worry — Whoopi Goldberg has your back!

On Monday's The View, the panel discussed the recent controversy that came after Bill Maher used a certain word on Real Time last Friday.

The comedian jokingly labeled himself a "House n*****" after Republican Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse invited him to work in the fields of his state, but most social media users weren't laughing — some even called for the removal of Maher's HBO show.

While a few of The View cohosts admitted they couldn't separate the word from it's nasty history, Whoopi had NO problem with Maher's casual utterance.

Why? Because she thinks we should strip the n-word of its power once and for all!

Do U agree? Watch the clip (below) to see what the comedienne and her co-panelists have to say about the controversy!

Whoa! Bill Maher Drops N-Word On Real Time — And EVERYONE Is Calling For HBO To Fire Him

no title

UPDATE, 3:13 p.m. ET:

Maher has released an apology about the incident:

"Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I'm up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn't have said on my live show. Last night was a particularly long night as I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment. The word was offensive and I regret saying it and am very sorry."



Not cool, Bill Maher.

During an interview with Republican Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse on his HBO show Real Time last night, Maher dropped the n-word in casual conversation, leading to an awkward moment with the politician and an even bigger blow-back from Twitter and others afterward.

Maher was trying to make a joke, it'd seem, but that's obviously not a very smart word to use in a joke, no matter the context.
