Bill Maher may not be around much longer. Suffice to say, he probably won’t be missed. It has been reported that he just put out this tweet:
This N Korean thing is getting tense! I mean, I think it is, I’m on vaca. The ladies at my nail salon are freaking out, that’s what I know!
Of course Bill Maher is a comedian who just not too recently has been renewed for a 15th and 16th season.
After his racially charged language in a recent show, Maher may not have a show for much longer. If he does, I’ll be surprised and if HBO allows it the move will raise questions about the responsibility of the network for Maher’ s inexcusable slur.

Now, when you criticize people for hate and crime they have committed, as I do, I am exercising my free speech and calling for responsibility.
To classify and categorize groups of people based on their beliefs, ethnicities and social groups is something totally different. When you make money off of language like that it is just like supporting such speech and comments.
Bill Maher is obviously a racist or someone who thinks he is so privileged that he thinks it’s okay to say what he says. I can’t imagine he would attempt to dive into the well of classifying remarks again without giving a clarification about his remarks about women in nail salons. Maher should write a blog or website so people wouldn’t be offended by a 140 word statement.
As of now the tweet hasn’t been deleted. Even if he was hacked the door was already opened by a remark that has been synonymous with hate through generation after generation. You can reach your own conclusions about the tweets meaning.
North Koreans are being oppressed by hunger and starvation in a militarized state that threatens all with abuse and death for loyalty. I feel sorry for North Korea and hope people who know relatives and those imprisoned by the regime don’t have to face discrimination for having heritage from there or for whatever reason why people at a nail salon would be freaking out. Everyone is.
