Thanks , I wondered but could not immediately see the connection.
Bill Maher, for better or worse is a comedic professional. That allows some
leeway in expression especially shock and awe.
I do not consider his remark to be racist or bigoted , nor evidence of him
being a ''bigoted racist''.
He did what comedians do frequently and without rancour and that is
cultural appropriation of actions and speech to make a counterpoint that
might not otherwise be available to him as a caucasian member of the
secular patriarchy - so called.
This media frenzy of 'racial' sensitivity from virtue signalling
'representatives' of minorities and intersectional victim-hoods does not
apparently extend to condemnation of African American and Indian Canadian
comedians that trade heavily on racial epithets and hugely derogatory
historical stereotypical performances, that happen to be funny to all of
us, though perhaps not the PostModernists.
And, I would say it was less of a cock up and more of a storm in a teacup.
I really hope his '' apology '' was as insincere as the outrage dripping
around the internet.

Typo, I meant Bill Maher regarding his "little" cock-up the other day.
