Ice Cube To Battle Bill Maher Over N-Word Use On This Week’s ‘Real Time’
Bill Maher probably won’t be suspended or fired for dropping the n-word on his show last week, but that doesn’t mean he’s getting off scot-free.
According to TMZ, special guests on this week’s show include a ni**a with an attitude, Ice Cube.
Cube’s appearance was scheduled before Bill opened his mouth to spew the volatile racial slur, the purpose of the visit was to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his album Death Certificate which released during the tension following the Rodney King beating.
Cube’s rep says it’s actually perfect timing because the album:
“…sadly, speaks to many of the same race issues we as a society are still dealing with today.”
Minnesota Senator Al Franken has cancelled his scheduled appearance this week following “house ni**a”-gate.
Not sure if we’re gonna get an Ice Cube who sides with the likes of Killer Mike (that wasn’t supposed to rhyme), or a militant Ice Cube who is gonna come for Bill’s neck. Either way, we’ll be tuned in to see the back-and-forth.
Speaking of Killer Mike, flip the page to see what he would have done if Bill Maher said n-word in front of him…
