Taking issue with Bill Maher dropping his name in reference to President Obama's supposed lack of "real blackness," mild-mannered comedian Wayne Brady recently blew a gasket, threatening physical harm against the HBO host in a manner reminiscent of his now-iconic Chappelle's Show sketch.
"I've had Bill Maher twice now when referencing Obama, he's like: 'Yeah, you know with your Wayne Brady'," the Whose Line Is It Anyway? star told Aisha Tyler during last week's episode of Tyler's podcast Girl on Guy. "Well, so that means it's a diss to Obama to be called me because he wants a brother-brother."
The conversation then took an unexpected turn, with Brady hitting back at Maher by saying he shouldn't claim to know how black someone is "just cause you fuck black hookers." He went on to pledge his willingness to "gladly slap the shit out of Bill Maher in the middle of the street" if he wants to know "how black Wayne Brady is."
Now, Bill Maher would call the cops and he would have his lawyer - I'd get sued and lose my house and it's not worth it for me. But the black man part of me would be so satisfied to slap the shit out of him in front of Cocoa and Ebony and Fox, the three ladies of the night that he has hired.
The game show host attempted to cool things down a bit by insisting that his excoriation "comes from a place of actually respecting Bill Maher's comedy and loving him," but nonetheless taking his comments "personally."
