John Mayer

Sorry for Dropping

the N-Word

2/10/2010 6:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John MayerJohn Mayer is apologizing for using the N-Word in that explosively controversial Playboy interview in which he compared his penis to a white supremacist.

During the interview, Mayer stated that "black people" love him -- and then he brought up the topic of a "hood pass."

While explaining the meaning of a hood pass, Mayer said, "It's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n*gger pass."

But moments ago, Mayer issued an apology, via Twitter, saying "I am sorry that I used the word. And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself."

Mayer added, "It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged."

To me, John, while talented, is very insecure and needs attention. Unfortunately, he alienates others in doing so. Hopefully, he will learn from his mistakes and keep his mouth closed until he has something worthwhile to say.

What a punk for apologizing. Who's going to apologize to you when they start calling you a racist? NOBODY!

There were so many reasons to be offended by his interview, that his apology seems to be empty words. Kiss my hind parts John Mayer. You are simple minded and I will never EVER listen to your music and nor will I listen to any artist that use you in production of their music. Take your Dave Duke C*ck and go to HELL!

Obviously it is something he uses in his everyday language so it was very easy for him to use in an interview with ease. It is a shame because we talk a good game but living the life the exemplifies such is apparently not eveident.

a tiny part, yes that describes John's non existent package, he's got a tiny pecker, a teenie weenie, a limp shrimp.

it's hard to get excited about the mannish Jessica Simpson.

she probably farted on his face.

I think he is like heidi and spencer from the hills they should stop giving him the press. I think he is mental nothing like degrading other people to give yourself more press time i think the whole interview should be pulled and not give the man the time of day for a while and see how well he likes his own medicine. I really think theese women need to speak up like jessica simpson and tell him he was really crappy in bed and paste it all over the covers of the tabloids. So as far as i am Concerned Playboy shoul reconsider printing this article. This does not say much for playboy either why print something like this, and they are now willing to let heidi show off her plastic surgery to sell copys she is a nobody why give her press. She is a nobody off of a teenybopper mtv show that is fake, lets get real. Now as far as mayor goes he is a very wealthy man and accomplished musician why put yourself out there for bad press unless you are mental and very insicure.
