Wayans Drops N-Bomb, Faces Fallout

Posted Dec 6th 2006 12:20PM by TMZ Staff

Damon Wayans became the first famous offender of the Laugh Factory's ban on the use of the n-word, and was fined and banned from the club for three months as a result, Wayans' publicist tells TMZ.
[...]
After Kramer's 'little' episode, the Laugh Factory says they don't want to hear that shit no more whether you're white or black.

Ah, the old racism double-standard. Evidently, it's only a no-no, or a racial slur even, when a non-black person calls a black person an en-eye-double-guh-er.

I'm getting sorta sick of the shit. It's a term of endearment when you're black and call yourself or your friends one, but you sue Richards when he does it.
Yeah, yeah. I know. It is - or rather was - the context. But don't tell me it's proper for a black person to use the word and not for everyone else to. That's bullshit.

I've seen plenty of people who are plenty entertaining without having to utilize the fabled 'n' word in their routine. Maybe Wayans and his ilk are just not talented enough to come up with other adjective. I dunno. But why they're so determined to perpetuate it's usage and not expect it from anyone else is beyond me.

I am not offended if someone uses "THE N-word". To me it just represents a lack of class and intelligence. But what do I know? I'm just an avarage "Saltine-American."

I have to agree. A lack of talent and class. And originality.

its "Guh"...
as in "mommy, how do you spell 'guh'?? cuz Tigger keeps spelling his name with it and I didn't learn it in kimbergarten yet."
I've never liked it, as a syllable combination. Kinda like the C-bomb. No use for it.

That's how I ment to do it, but it didn't come out right. I have since corrected it.

Thanx for the e-nun-see-a-shun. :)
