Looks like high-profile beefs have spilled out over the edges of hip-hop and have bled into the world of … TV???
Wayne Brady says he’ll slap the taste out of HBO talk show host Bill Maher for some off-color jokes he made at Brady’s expense.
Brady, who has acquired a reputation as a nice guy with a “well-manicured” personality on TV shows like “Let’s Make A Deal” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” went volcanic on Maher on Aisha Tyler’s podcast, “Girl on Guy.” In the interview, Brady takes issue with fellow comedian Bill Maher for repeatedly referring to President Obama as “your Wayne Brady,” then slams Maher for his reputed preference for low-class black women.
“That means it’s a diss to Obama to be called me because he wants a brother brother,” Brady said, before revving it up into fifth gear about Maher. In fact, Brady verbally struck Maher … uhhh … below the belt.
“Just because you f— black hookers, just because you had that particular black experience,” Brady continued before he edited his own tongue. “I have to stop myself to getting into it because I realize the thing is if I had gone on his show, or even doing it online, I’m not going to win. Because as soon as you back off, he still has his platform to say whatever he wants to.”
Brady, 40, had one final stinging remark for Maher, telling him that if Maher really wanted to “know how black Wayne Brady is,” then Brady would “gladly slap the s— out of Bill Maher in front of Coco and Ebony and Fox, the three ladies of the night he has hired.”
Well, OK. Are you as surprised as I am that Brady went it in hard on a fellow TV star like that? I personally didn’t think he had it in him.
