Bill Maher is catching lots of attention for his use of a racial slur on his Real Time With Bill Maher show on HBO. Amid the outcry and calls for Maher’s firing, Chance The Rapper also raised his voice by asking the network to take the show off the air.

“Please @HBO Do Not Air Another Episode Of Real Time With Bill Maher,” Chance tweeted Saturday morning (June 3). The tweet has been retweeted over 9,000 times with several sub-comments in the tweet thread trying to defend Maher’s use of the slur as an ill-timed joke.

Other debates have kicked off on Twitter regarding Maher’s past line-stepping while also noting his close ties to the Black and Hip Hop communities.

Chance wasn’t the only high-profile name to blast Maher — filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry, Killer Mike, actor Jeffrey Wright, and others have chimed in on the controversy in their respective fashions. Killer Mike, who has been a guest on Real Time, tried to use his platform to warn others away from the outrage over Maher’s use of the “n-word.”

Maher apologized Saturday afternoon for calling himself a “house nigger” on Real Time With Bill Maher during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican from Nebraska.

“I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment,” he said in a statement. “The word was offensive, and I regret saying it and am very sorry.”

But the outry continues.
