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 The word has been replaced by “slave,” a fact Ebert referenced in the tweet.
