    Chevy Chase apologized over the weekend after he dropped an N-bomb, and though there is never any excuse for an old white dude to use that word, it was at least in frustration and the direction of his “Community†character, Pierce Hawthorne, who Chevy feels is being unfairly demonized as a bigot. Apparently, he said something along the lines of, “What’s next? Is Pierce going to be saying “N*****?†Production was halted until Chase issued a formal apology.

    It was in TMZ and the NY Daily News.
    Chevy Chase apologized immediately after using the 'N-word' in a rant late last week.
    It's called acting, people!


    Chevy Chase caught some major flack for using the "N-word" on the set of NBC show "Community" Friday, but the outspoken actor has since apologized for his verbal outburst, insisting that his rant was not directed at any of his African-American cast members.


    Chase, 69, reportedly used the offensive word to air his frustrations about his character's increasingly bigoted views.


    According to TMZ, the actor was unhappy with the kind of dialogue he was being presented with, and angrily suggested that he might be next told to call Donald Glover's character Troy or Yvette Nicole Brown's character Shirley the "N-word."


    TV Line reports that production of the show was briefly halted before Chase apologized for his outburst.


    The former "Saturday Night Live" comedian also "apologized immediately" to his "Community" costars.

    Ignoring the context a word is used in and concentrating only on the word itself.....

    typical.

    Chevy should be thankful he has a job on network TV. If the script requires him to be pissed on, his answer should be "yes sir".

    I forget, for his wedding toast did he claim he gave Howard anal warts or that Howard gave them to him?

    Either way, he's a classy individual.

    I hate to defend Chevy, since he IS an asshole, but what exactly did he do that was so wrong here? He didn't actually call anyone. Reggie.

    I know what you are saying. However, I think a good rule of thumb for us white folks is to never, ever use the word "n****r". An easy way to stay out of trouble.

    An easy way to stay out of trouble but also an easy way of sweeping a problem under the rug. Making it such a taboo to say the word only makes it more influential. Words don't have any power, it's the feeling you put into saying them or you have when hearing them...

    ^Shut up, stupid.

    That's great. Assuming you have a job, why don't you go to a black co-worker and call them a Reggie and report back with your findings.

    Look, you're right. BUT you must admit there is a double standard at work. I listen to hip-hop a lot, and n****r is used constantly.
