Bill Maher issued an apology hours ago for using a racial epithet during an episode of his HBO talk show Real Time with Bill Maher.

“Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I’m up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn’t have said on my live show. Last night was a particularly long night as I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment. The word was offensive and I regret saying it and am very sorry.”

Bill Maher has been known to be a polarizing figure, having been fired in the past for controversial comments. Do you believe Maher is being sincere? Let us know in the comments.
