larry wilmore

It's been a tough few months for late night TV host Larry Wilmore. First CNN blacklisted him, and now his 'Nightly Show' on Comedy Central has been canceled.

Wilmore made headlines in May after he called the president of the United States a "nigga" during Barack Obama's final White House Correspondents Dinner.

The comedian was criticized for referring to the outgoing president as "my nigga" during his standup routine at the dinner.

Wilmore also provoked indignation from CNN for mocking anchors Wolf Blitzer and Don Lemon.

During the immediate fallout, CNN canceled Wilmore's appearance on Lemon's nightly show.

Comedy Central president Kent Alterman said the decision came down to poor ratings.

"Unfortunately, it hasn't connected with our audience in ways that we need it to," Alterman told The Hollywood Reporter.

Maybe Wilmore's homie, Obama, can get him a job at the White House?

  • Rachel

    Who knew he had a show ???

  • LibraGirlonly

    I have never watched but off topic one of the ladies from LHH Hollyweird called her husband a Nigga on air last night. I just shock my head. How can we say tell another race it's wrong when they see and hear us in TV using the word. A white chick was in a discussion with her black co worker about using the N word. From what I gathered while standing at the deli counter. White chick called her black co worker the N word. She was telling the other black girl she didn't want to get fired because she will loose custody of her son. Black girl said you should have thought about that before you said it. White girl said you guys call each other that all the time. Black girl says no mam you white you don't get to say it. I was like hey can I just get some cheese please. Lol

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Where IZ it?!?! ???

    ?Hey sis

  • LibraGirlonly

    I agree that they want to say it but I don't think it's good look for us to go in TV saying it. I say it at times but never around certain folks.

  • i troll it like i see it

    He did this to himself.

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    Perhaps Larry's simply not ready for prime time :shrug:
    He's a bona fide writer though, so he should recover nicely, and get back to the rivers and lakes he's used to - behind the scenes, lol.

  • Libra80sBaby

    BRUH..I'm reading about Eddie Lawng on other sites and they are rippin this man a new asshole....lol

  • LibraGirlonly

    He might be in need of a new one anyway.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Well, since he tends to like assholes...... LMAO

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Again? What he do now?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The White House had to have approved his skit before the Dinner.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Look like an AIDS or crack patient, old ass raisinette, a plucked Foghorn Leghorn (I forgot who threw out that gem) and a tired Squidward (says Lurk), claiming it's a "diet" and he's staying away from "slave meals."

  • Libra80sBaby

    Nothing new..that skelator ass picture

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Eh he'll be alright

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    oh Libra.... you didn't even bother to say 'no pun'

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'm pretty sure he gets a nice check from Black-ish

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    You there! You go now! (and take that other "Libra" with you!)

  • NegroDamus

    he swallowed some raw mixed meat, none of that slave menu meat the..he Mr. Organic and what not

  • Libra80sBaby

    nah..lol

  • Libra80sBaby

    Waterfalls and Bishop Lawng might be connected

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    he's a lie and the truth ain't in him. I dated vegetarian (I know it's diff from vegan, but still....) and that dude ain't never looked like Ed (boy) Lover!
    I'm not wishing anything bad on him, but I don't believe this explanation either.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I LOVE that show! I wish Tracee and Anthony were together IRL

  • Libra80sBaby

    Dre Mammy, Jenifer Lewis be having me WEAK

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Right up his ALLEY ?

    OH ?

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He just needs to come out the closet already. Whoever wants to still follow him can and everybody else can stop putting on the blindfold to his bullshitt. I don't have a problem with him being gay. I take issue with him lying about it and still trying to take money in the name of the Lord with the foundation of lies. Jesus, Buddah, Mohammad and Mickey Mouse knows he is gay... just be honest already.

  • Buttercup

    LOL. Did you just call him a ol' dirty lie?

  • Sucker Free

    I guess...ninja still sounds cooler

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    (did I mention that I'm not speakin to you on tuhday?)

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    yes, I've been a fan of hers for years (and I love her name)

  • hottlanta

    I tell them that Jeff Foxworthy made millions off 'you ain't nothing but a REDNECK jokes". (goggle it) There is also a reality redneck show and redneck games. I have also heard white people call each other redneck to each other. So can I call you a redneck since white people call each other redneck. Every time I say that back to them their face turns red.

  • hottlanta

    STOP!!!!!!!!!

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    yeah, if you can get it in on the clock, you winning, lol

  • LeBrick James

    Well, I dont wish the man any ill will, but if he dies in the next year or two from "pneumonia" I wont be surprised at all.

  • MookieFly

    Por Que??? ???

  • LuLu

  • LuLu

    I wholeheartedly agree with that, too! I was shocked he did it AND to the POTUS! LOL

  • Libra80sBaby

    I dont want nobody...fukin with me IN THESE STREETS!

  • NegroDamus

    He aint in the closet, and if he is the doors aren't on the hinges lmao...Oh and as far as the members, they're too prideful to admit being duped.. so to save face they're staying under the guise of "forgiveness"

  • JustB

    What about the fact that he is just not funny...

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    A lot of comedians out there are not funny, and how they have a show is beyond my reasoning. They just hand anyone a mic, band and desk just because they tell a joke or two...doesn't mean they need their own show... just ask Mo'Nique.

  • Phillybruh

    He just wasn't funny in that format. I'm still trying to figure out who thinks Hannibul Burris is funny.

  • Rahab

    He reminded folks about Bill Cosby accusations.

  • Rahab

    He reminded folks about Bill Cosby accusations.

  • Candance

    That's unfortunate. That is a word for him to say and Pres Obama to receive.... I guess you have to be grown adult to understand and not feel some kind of way.

  • Buttercup

    Hahaha. Is that right? I love it as well because it's very similar to my name.

  • Blak

    Don't you mean hopefully his "nigga" Obama would help a brutha out?!?! lol

  • Karma WhO

    when u get blacklisted..its a wrap! ask mo'nique!

  • LibraGirlonly

    Lol I'm going to use that!!

  • 88

    The word Niger is in the bible.
    Acts 13:1
    Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger.

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!
  • Mystery User

    Good! He's not funny anyways - never was!

  • KB

    I read a few today on a FB page and was ROFLMAO at 6am ?. Is he trying to be the new Dr. Sebi (RIP)?

  • Zizzle

    Great job, Larry, but you kept it waaayyy too real for 'em, obviously.

  • chango1976

    Obama paid him back with the smile and laughs but got him fired

  • Hmmm~?

    Not even the whites like his coon ass. He's annoying to everyone.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Yes!!! ???

  • stanhope

    Miss Lemon who sits on more YT richards that Miss Bruce Jenner and that's saying something

  • Ms Leone

    The guy doesn't look funny he just looks of obnoxious. Being loud and black doesn't automatically make yu funny.
