There’s always someone who brings the mood down at Christmas time.
There was uproar last night when a video resurfaced of disgraced comedian and filmmaker Louis CK unable to stop himself using the N-word.
Sitting in front of Chris Rock, British star Ricky Gervais and a clearly uncomfortable Jerry Seinfeld, the loose-lipped 51-year-old didn’t hold back in the clip from 2011.
Gervais and funnyman Rock soon joined in as the awkward exchange hit social media on Christmas Eve.
The roundtable chat was from hit show Talking Funny – and the backlash after it was discovered has been fierce.
CK said: “When a black guy gets rich, it’s a countdown to when he’s poor again.”
His comments prompt laughter before the Rock calls him: “the blackest white guy I f*****g know”.
He added: “All the negative things we think about black people, this f****r” before CK interrupts: “You’re saying I’m a n*****?”
Rock responds: “You are the n*****est f***ing white man I have ever met.”
Gervais, who also used the term, has come under fire for laughing during the exchange.
TV legend Seinfeld appears to be the only one to come out unscathed.
When asked by CK if he ever said the N-word, Seinfeld swiftly responded, “no” – adding he would never use the word.
It doesn’t bode to well for the disgraced Louis, who has been embarking on a comeback after his allegations of sexual misconduct.
