CNN regular and HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill admitted to “promiscuous” use of the “n-word” in a discussion on “CNN Tonight” regarding Justin Bieber and Donald Sterling’s recent racist remarks on Monday.
Hill stated, “I don’t use it in public. I don’t use it on TV. That’s how I keep a job, but in my house I use the n-word promiscuously.” He also agreed with panelist Sunny Hostin that he believes it’s OK for black people to use the racial slur. Interestingly, Hill’s defense of his own use of the term came in a segment where he lambasted Justin Bieber for using the “n-word” in a recently surfaced videotape of him from several years ago.
