John Mayer Apologizes For Dropping the N-Bomb in ‘Playboy’

You made one smart move at least, John. Apologizing via Twitter is the surest way for millions of people to see just how sorry you are for your cataclysmic screw-up

John Mayer’s mouth sure ain’t a wonderland. In fact, the singer’s loose lips have caused an uproar after he stupidly dropped the N-bomb in an interview with Playboy magazine. And now that he’s taking major heat for his toolbox trap, he decided to post his apology – via Twitter (natch) where the whole wide world could see just how vewy sowwy he was.

“Re using the “N word” in an interview. 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,” the 32-year-old crooner tweeted Feb. 10. “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.”

Why is John apologizing? Check out his comment in Playboy and YOU be the judge.

“Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, “I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’”

We just have one comment – Taylor Swift, why in the hell are you dating this guy?!
