Famous Non-Blacks Who Dropped N-Bombs

Everyone is all in a bunch over Django and how it calls for White people to drop N-Bombs over Bagdhad because – and we don’t have to be history majors for this – people said the N-word during slavery. Go figure.

Django isn’t the only movie that’s had non-Black actors dropping the word. It’s been going on for decades. Here’s a short history lesson.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx

Leonardo DiCaprio – He was great in Django and played the most believable slave master imaginable. And yes, he came equipped with N-bombs.


Quentin Tarantino – He originally made Spike Lee mad by saying the word a bunch of times in Pulp Fiction.


Louis CK –He’s inserted the N-word into his stand-up act and it’s damn funny. Somehow he manages it without being offensive.


Clint Eastwood – In Escape From Alcatraz back in the 70s, Eastwood said “I just hate N****.” Art imitating life.


Michael Rappaport – He was the infuriating racist from Spike Lee’s Bamboozled. Ironic, no?

LV Hangover

Zach Galifinakis – He used the N-word in Hangover II and caught a ton of flack for it. Probably because the movie wasn’t that funny.

    Jennifer Lopez –
    J. Lo said the N-word in her song “I’m Real.” Diddy let her feel too comfortable we see.


    Bruce Willis – In Die Hard With A Vengeance, the villain made him go to Harlem and wear a sandwich board that said “I hate N****”…kinda funny actually.


    Everyone In Reservoir Dogs – They all dropped N-bombs. No wonder Tarantino gets so much flack.
