Some Seriously Shady Stuff Has Come Out About Bill Maher SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : Bill Maher has made an entire career out of being politically incorrect — but sometimes he arguably goes too far. While his career has survived relatively unscathed, that doesn’t mean some of his sketchier moments didn’t make big waves. Here are some of the shady things that have come out about Bill Maher.
During a 2017 live taping of Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher dropped a racial slur, sparking outrage. In a later conversation with author and sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson, Maher offered a rambling public apology, though he prefaced it by saying:
“There is a lot of bulls— apologizing in America, and I am against that.”
However, Maher did want to apologize to those he may have offended most, saying,
“For black folks, that word — I don’t care who you are — has caused pain. I’m not here to do that.”
He tried to explain why he ever used the offensive word in the first place, explaining,
“The comic mind goes to a weird place sometimes.”
He quickly added,
“It doesn’t matter that it wasn’t said in malice, it wasn’t, but if it brought back pain to people, that’s why I apologize freely.”
