After sorority girls at University of New Hampshire were recorded saying "n****s" when rapping along to Kanye West's "Gold Digger," a national debate on the word ensued. However, no debate on race would be complete with Piers Morgan giving his unwanted two cents.
In response to the viral video, Morgan penned an op-ed for the Daily Mail wherein he argued there is a difference between "n****r" and "n***a," and if anyone is to blame for white people saying the word, it's rappers like West who put it in their songs.
"But if rappers like Kanye West insist on using it, and writing songs with the word in either form, then it is absolutely predictable and understandable that their fans will sing the songs just as they hear them – regardless of the colour of their skin.
"These Alpha Phi Sorority sisters did nothing wrong.
"If you want someone to blame, then blame Kanye West," Morgan wrote.
