Bill Maher apologizes but media doesn’t like it.

I’m a House N***.” Maher told the audience he was joking, but the backlash on social media was immediate.
Sasse also added his comment saying he wish he’s spoken up to Maher right away and asked him … “Why would you think it’s OK to use that word? The history of the n-word is an attack on universal human dignity … Don’t use it.”
