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
Batman returned to Real Time with Bill Maher (via ONTD) last night and when the topic of Islamophobia came up, he pretty much turned into an angry face palming machine while debating with Bill and fellow guest Sam Harris. (Side note: I’m really disappointed that it was neuroscientist Sam Harris and not Sam Harris from Star Search.)
Bill Maher started up the fun time conversation by saying that liberals fight for equality and freedom of speech (etc), but when someone says that those things are lacking in the muslim religion, they get mad. Sam Harris, who was on Team Maher, piped in with, “[Americans] have been sold this meme of Islamophobia.” Ben Affleck, a liberal, slapped back at Bill and Sam Harris by saying that they’re painting a broad picture of Islam and lumping all Muslims together when not all Muslims are radicals. Ben called their views “racist” and “gross” and said it’s like saying, “Oh, you shifty Jew!” Michael Steele and Nicholas Kristof were also in the conversation, but it was mostly a battle between Ben, Bill Maher and Sam Harris.
After a little back and forth, Bill turned up it and said that Islam is the “only religion that acts like the mafia and will fucking kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture and write the wrong book.” Ben said that the number of terrorist in the Muslim religion is small and that Bill’s argument is basically, “Black people, you know, they shoot each other.”
If you’ve got 10 minutes and want to spend it watching Bill Maher, Ben Affleck and Sam Harris (not the one from Star Search) go at it about Islam, here you go:
But really, what in the Hell kind of GD television host is Bill Maher? Bill Maher has Ben Affleck on his show, on the night that Gone Girl is released and he doesn’t spend the entire time talking about the one big reason (that may or may not be an accurate pun and I’ll know for sure when I see that shit tonight) why many of us hard-up, dick-hungry sluts are going to see that movie? Bill should’ve done a long profile (again, I’ll know tonight if that’s an accurate pun or not) on the Affleck dick and then in an exclusive interview, he should’ve asked it how it feels about being the breakout star of Gone Girl. I can’t with him. I can’t with any of them.
And here’s Ben looking like a beefed up Ball Park frank in a t-shirt after having breakfast with Jennifer Garner yesterday.
