It’s this kind of situation that makes you want to look tiredly at a famous cretin after they issue the standard apology and go “Uh, huh. Thank you. NEXT!!!,” because celebrity stupids apologizing for crap behavior will be queued up until the sun finally hits earth.
Bill Maher barely slept a wink after dropping the n-bomb on his show Friday night, and he’s way sorry. Can you imagine the gritted teeth as pompous ass Bill okayed his publicist releasing this? He probably cracked a molar.
According to Vulture:
“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. 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.”
As you remember, during Bill’s show Real Time, Bill and Nebraska’s Senator Ben Sasse had a jolly exchange in which Bill referred to himself as a house n… (I’m not even going to type the symbols for the expletives). Senator Sassy nervously laughed. The audience nervously laughed. (And some clapped!) And we are a truly depressing race of beings.
HBO also released a statement:
“Bill Maher’s comment last night was completely inexcusable and tasteless. We are removing his deeply offensive comment from any subsequent airings of the show.”
No one’s talking about firing him because you have to really rack up the gross behavior points and eff with advertising dollars before they take a serious look at you. Bill Reilly had to allegedly call up A LOT of ladies to try and get them to listen to him jerk off before he got canned. It takes effort!
As for Bill’s sleep deprivation, there are several remedies. Like over-the-counter sleep aids, or warm milk, or masturbation, or not being publicly flippant about slavery.
