Chance The Rapper Demands That Bill Maher Gets Fired From HBO For Using Racial Slur

Close

Bill Maher crossed the line and this time, no one will let him forget it- especially Chance The Rapper.

On Friday night's episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the HBO talk show host sat down with Nebraskan Republican senator, Ben Sasse. During the segment, Sasse mentioned how much he would love to visit his home state, Nebraska.

Once Sasse invited Maher to visit, "We'd love to have you work in the fields with us."

The political satirist replied with, "Work in the fields? Senator, I'm a house n*****."

Maher's comment sparked outrage online.

The comedian issued an apology for using the racial slur, however, it was too little, too late for the Chicago rapper to accept.

Since Chance The Rapper voiced his opinion on social media, the 24-year-old's large fanbase supported his beliefs and retweeted his post nearly 16,000 times and liked it about 47,000 times.

"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," Maher said in a statement according to The New York Times.

"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."

A source told TMZ that HBO has no plans of letting Maher go. This comes as a shock to many since this isn't the first time Maher has said the racial slur on air before,
