Paul Mooney is a renowned comedian, but he recently had a tough set on The Arsenio Hall Show that didn’t go over too well.

Says The Urban Daily:

Now for those of you who aren’t old enough to know who comedian Paul Mooney is and what his serious contributions to the world of comedy at large let alone black comedy are…allow us to educate you a little on the significance of this man’s quick wit and his ability to slice and dice others with his words. His thing has always been about race and educating those around him on the disparities between the races.

However, Mooney may have gone too far.

Mooney went on record as saying he was no longer going to use the word Ni**a any more. But he supposedly called a black guy in the audience a, “bald-headed ni**a.”

One person who was there told TMZ… the crowd was stunned — and sat in awkward silence as Mooney tried to transition into different material.
