Killer Mike has been catching some heat for defending HBO talk show host Bill Maher‘s use of the N-word. Mike responded to the controversy by stating that the black community has “bigger things” to concern themselves with.
TMZ recently spoke with Mike about the controversy, and he claims that he would have punched Maher in the stomach if he had ever used the n-word around him at any point.
“I would’ve punched Bill in his stomach. I would’ve punched Bill in his stomach and said, ‘You sound stupid,’ and we would’ve smoked a joint after,” Mike said. “You know why, because that’s what you do when your white friend does that when you’re 13 and he gets a little too comfortable and says it—you punch your friend in the stomach.”
