Rachel Jeantel responded to Rush Limbaugh’s use of the word “n—a” during an appearance on HuffPost Live that aired Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Limbaugh had used the word out loud, saying that he was now able to utter it because Jeantel had, in his view, said it was fine to do so during an interview with Piers Morgan.
HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill played the clip for Jeantel, who said she had never heard of Limbaugh before. He then asked for her reaction.
“When you say it out loud in person in front of people, that’s disrespectful,” she said. “It is racist for an adult.”
“Does it matter whether the adult is black or white?” Hill asked. “Yes!” Jeantel said. “When you heard Rush Limbaugh say it just then, did it feel racist to you?” Hill said.
“Well, yes,” Jeantel said. “But I can’t judge him.”
Don’t worry Rachel, we’ll judge him for you. He’s an a$$hole, fawk ’em.
