Fresh off his apology to the world for his use of the N-word, Bill Maher was joined by Ice Cube on last week’s episode of Real Time to talk about the extremely sensitive topic. The NWA rapper was no holds barred telling the HBO host, “that’s our word. You can’t have it back. I know they trying to get it back…guys that cross the line everyday because they have some black homies and they think it’s cool.”

Oprah even weighed in on the topic on Access Hollywood earlier this month.
