Cuba Gooding Jr. isn't afraid of a little controversy.
The actor, who made Tom Cruise scream, "I love black people" in "Jerry Maguire," dropped an N-bomb outside of Butter nightclub in New York last night, proudly declaring, "That's right, I said it!"
It's the second time in two weeks that TMZ cameras captured Cuba making racially charged statements, but Cuba doesn't seem to mind. "At least I got all my clothes on."
