HBO has released a statement over Bill using the word:
Once again, Bill Maher is facing backlash.
The very outspoken host of 'Real Time' is garnering harsh criticism right now, after dropping the N word during an interview last night.
While speaking with Senator Ben Sasse, the two were engaging in banter, when Sasse invited Maher to visit his home state of Nebraska. Sasse then also joked that Maher could join him on the farming fields.
“Work in the fields? Senator, I am a house n****r,” to which Sasse shockingly laughed along, before Bill informed the audience he was making a joke.
He's yet to comment any further on the backlash.
