Dr. Laura Schlessinger Quits Radio Show Amidst N-Word Controversy
Famed radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who recently faced harsh criticism for using the N-word on her radio show has decided not to continue her radio show next season.
According to published reports, Schlessinger stated on Larry King Live that she will now re-sign when her contract runs out at the end of the year, because she wants “to regain her First Amendment rights.”
As previously reported, Schlessinger came under fire after reportedly telling a Black woman who called into her show about her husband's friends being racist.
In the rant caught on audio, Schlessinger complains that Black people are too sensitive and that Black people voted for Obama because of a “Black thing.”
During the duration of the conversation she used the N-word several times, justifying it by saying that “Black comics do it.”
After using the racial epithet 11 times in 5 minutes to make a point during her show, Schlessinger says that she is still “regretful” over the incident.
She also told Larry King that she felt her freedom of speech rights “have been usurped by angry, hateful groups who don't want to debate – they want to eliminate.”
What do you guys think, should people, Black or otherwise be able to use the N-Word? Let us know!
