Roger Ebert, Who Is Married To A Black Woman, Apologizes For Using The N-Word On Twitter

Film critic Roger Ebert (L) and wife Chaz Ebert

Although he’s down with the brown, is it okay for him to use the n-word in this context??

Roger Ebert apologized Thursday after facing heated criticism for using the n-word in a tweet on Wednesday.

The famed film critic used the word in a Wednesday tweet that linked to a story about the removal of the n-word from a recent version of “Huckleberry Finn.” The word has been replaced by “slave,” a fact Ebert referenced in the tweet.

    What’s wrong with his face?? Looks like he had too may surgeries.

    This story sounds like my brother and his ex girlfriend. He found out she was using the word nygger when he wasn’t around… I believe most white people, men and women, do this ish. About 70% of all of them are still racist.

      Roger Ebert and his wife were on “Sunday Morning” on CBS this past Sunday. He lost his lower jaw to cancer. They looked happy together. Sad, no one here mentions his wife’s name. : (

  • don't ask

    As much as we use the word among ourselves we need not make an issue about this. He only used the word for the purpose of bringing out facts about what was already in the news about a piece of American literature. Lighten up with this pseudo outrage when we call ourselves even worse than that.

    • nat

      thank you

      He was referring to a piece of literature and if people stopped to THINK about the context, it might just make sense. And he NEVER called any black people the N-word. That’s the other thing. If you want to be angry, be mad at all of the ignorant people that spread the n*gga word all over this globe for all races to flaunt and spew publicly. smh.

  • daisy jay

    Apologize? He wasn’t being vulgar when he said it, so I don’t think he should necessarily apologize. It’s possibly to use that word without being profane, folks.

    That is…an interesting looking couple. Love…love will blind you? Ha I think that was mean. I bet somebody’s gonna accuse her of self hate in 3, 2…1….

  • http://google SMH

    Call me n*gger all day long but just don’t try and get physical because I’m trigger happy and don’t give a f*ck.

    • mellowmoodd7

  • G.M.

    now we finally know the real reason why his mouth is like that, he must of said “n199er” around the wrong brothers and they pop his a$$ in the mouth and knocked his jaw clean off, u think he would of learned from it then lmao

  • if anything be noble

    Here’s Johnny, I agree with you 100% regarding the C Rock thing. When I say it doesn’t mean Black, I mean, regardless of what someone ignorant means by saying it, we know who we are.

    • Curious1 aka Flawless Beauty

      NO…we don’t..that’s a myth

  • Allie

    Seriously, anyone who is offended scroll back up, re-read the tweet and take 5 min to think about it…and i actually agree with what he said and yes i’m a black female

    • Here's Johnny

      Black females have been sticking up for white men for centuries, so yes, I fully believe you’re a black woman.

    • Curious1 aka Flawless Beauty

      LOL…shoot forget the Tweet…read the BOOK…and latest news about this controversy to either keep the authentic writing of the book 100% untouched all the 200+ Nygger references or change it, to substitute Nygger with “another more pallable PC” word…for todays 21st century…

    • Curious1 aka Flawless Beauty

      ALWAYS Sticking up for YT Boys??….prove that absurd accusation…wow

    • Allie

      @Here’s Johnny: I’m really sorry that you’re as ignorant as you are
