Regrets N-Word Joke
… I Lost Sleep Over It

Bill Maher has apologized for using the n-word on his show Friday night … claiming he’s lost a lot of sleep over it.
Maher just released a statement saying … “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.”
He added that using the word on his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher” was offensive, regretful, and he’s very sorry.
As we reported … Maher was joking with Republican Sen. Ben Sasse about adults wearing Halloween costumes before he dropped the racial slur.
