The Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday there’s nothing funny about comedian Bill Maher using the N-word.

“Oh no! There are no exceptions that make this acceptable,” Sharpton said on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” in railing against the HBO star.

Maher has since apologized for the racial slur and HBO said it will remove the “deeply offensive comment” from any subsequent airings of the “Real Time with Bill Maher Show.”

Sharpton has led the charge against conservative commentators for saying racially insensitive things, including Don Imus and Rush Limbaugh.

On his Sunday talk show, Sharpton said civil rights activists must be consistent in their outrage when the N-word is used – even by their friends.
