Kevin Hart Weighs In on Bill Maher’s N-Word Controversy

The comedian has a lot to say about it.

Bill Maher's use of the n-word on his HBO talk show Real Time still has people talking (and fuming) — now for the reason that he seems to be facing zero consequences for the offensive move.
But Maher is still catching a lot of heat from his fellow celebrities for referring to himself as a "house n*gga" on national television, with the latest to weigh in being his fellow comedian Kevin Hart.

During a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, Hart shared his views on the controversy.
"I've seen Bill Maher come to the defense of Black people on several occasions, [but] that's a bad judgment," he says. "Granted, I don't think Bill Maher is a racist, but that's a bad judgment." He adds, "It's inappropriate and it's not right. So to say that, to say that and say it the way you said it, as comfortable as you said it in a joking form, you're wrong. Now, granted, you can issue all the apologies you want, but to say it on your platform — that's tacky."
