John Mayer Totally Comfortable Using Racist Slurs In Stand Up Premiere
It hurts The Apiary to see a hateful phrase like “The N-word.” You can imagine how uncomfortable we feel saying “Un burrito con frijoles negros, por favor” to the China-man behind the counter of the Mexican taco stand down the street.

Mayer’s performance was jeered as “the most awkward, offensive, unfunny 15 minute comedy act” Blogger Jason Pinter, has ever seen. Pinter has obviously never bared witness to Patrick Duffy in any given episode of Step By Step.
Hold the porkchops though. Sherrod Small, a comedian who was working The Comedy Cellar that night, rushed to defend John Mayer’s act and said, “Everybody loved [his use of the N-word].”
