Refresh For Updates Bill Maher’s use of the N-word on Real Time With Bill Maher last night has drawn condemnation from HBO, an apology from the host, comparisons to Kathy Griffin’s bloody Trump photo, and even a “what I should have said” response from Maher’s guest last night, Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse.

Here is a selection of the responses from actors, comedians, musicians, pundits and the congressman. We’ll update as additional reactions come in.
