Because I’m a yokel from the suburbs of Boston, I was dead chuffed when I was drinking at The Beverly Hills Hotel one afternoon and Courteney Cox, Rachel Zoe, and that guy from Fear The Walking Dead were all wandering around. Monica Geller-Bing read a bar appetizer menu two stools over from me! As pathetic as that sounds, now I wish I hadn’t. Because the Sultan of Brunei owns the hotel, Brunei has recently ok’d punishing homosexual behavior by stoning the “guilty” to death, and George Clooney is now leading a boycott against all of the luxury hotels owned by the Sultan. George Clooney is totally running for president one day and “leading a boycott against a gay-hating Sultan” is a great thing to have on your resume when you want to be the future bleeding heart liberal POTUS. Well, that and “Nespresso machines for all!!!”
Oh, that Bill Maher. He’s gone and done it now. The man who didn’t understand that using the n-word in jest was super-problematic wrote a blog post pissing on comic book fans for overly mourning the passing of Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee. He also insinuated that adults who read comic books are maturity-challenged losers who refuse to grow up. Well, that mouthy bastard has gone and pissed off geeks. That’s one segment of the population that you don’t want on your ass. The evil ones among us chase celebrities off of social media, topple movies by messing with their Rotten Tomatoes score, and will come to your house to protest while cosplaying Zatanna from Justice League. Your quaint little talking heads whinefest will be a smoking hole in the ground, hunty. Now, if you’ll pardon me, I need to squeeze into my Zatanna costume and go protest on Bill’s lawn.
Pundit of “edgy,” Bill Maher resumed hosting his HBO show Real Time last night. Bill was recently castigated by just about everyone and their nana for dropping the n-word.
Bill was hoping to show that he’s salvageable as a human being, so he had Ice Cube on as a guest last night. Ice declared that he was “cool” with Bill. So maybe Bill can get some sleep now. According to Pitchfork:
“I did a bad thing. For black folks, that word, I don’t care who you are, it’s caused pain. It doesn’t matter that it was not said in malice, it caused pain and that’s why I apologized.”
If I insist on bringing you yet another story about Bill Maher, then I should at least give your eyes something adorable like a puppy friend. Specifically, a puppy friend who is wondering what she did wrong in life to deserve being seen in public with the insufferable turnip.
Over the weekend, Kathy Griffin probably sent Bill Maher a bloody Trump mask full of thank you flowers, because the headlines about her stunt and messy press conference got replaced with headlines about him dropping the n-word during a live taping of his show Real Time on HBO. Bill later burped up an apology, saying that he regret saying the word and it kept him up all night. HBO also said that what came out of Bill’s smug hole was inexcusable and tasteless. But while Kathy is finding herself out of several jobs, Bill Maher is keeping his for now.
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.
There are just some words you never want to hear coming from a person’s mouth on television in a non-fictional situation. For instance, you never want to hear someone say “dingleberry,” because that’s just a disgusting word. You never want to hear the phrase “I, Kim Kardashian, take you, [next husband]…” ever again. And you never want to hear a television host use the n-word in a joking manner.
Well, Bill Maher doesn’t care what you want! He’ll attempt to use the n-bomb in a jokey way and you’ll like it! Television rebel Bill went there on his Real Time show last night. Continue reading
