Bill Maher’s ex-girlfriend says he used N-word frequently
Coco Johnson dated Maher for a year and a half. She eventually sued him for $9 million after their relationship ended because, according to Johnson, Maher not only for failing to follow through on his promise to marry her but also because of verbal abuse and degrading racial comments.
“I just think that anyone who uses the N-word is very insensitive. Just use another word, you know, next time. I’m sure that he’s learned his lesson,” Johnson said when asked about Maher’s controversial joke, according to TMZ. “Maybe a little sensitivity training at the NAACP could do some use.” Maher came under fire last Friday on “Real Time” when, sitting with Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Maher was jokingly asked to the state and work in the fields.
“It’s so condescending, and just sad and disappointing that someone so intelligent would stoop to that level.”
