Now Tim Allen is Using the N-Word
For some reason, TIM ALLEN decided now was a good time to get in depth on his opinion of the N Word.
During an interview with the "Tampa Bay Times", Allen dropped it several times. And he even said the phrase "The N-word" is more offensive than the actual word.
He said, quote, "You want to take the power away from that word so that no one is offended by it. If I have no intent, if I show no intent, if I clearly am not a racist, then how can [N-word] be bad coming out of my mouth?"
He added, quote, "I do a movie with Martin Lawrence, and pretty soon they're referring to me, 'Hey, my [N-word is] up.' So I'm the [N-word] if I'm around you guys but 7 feet away, if I said [N-word], it's not right.
"It's very confusing to the European mind how that works, especially if I've either grown up or evolved or whatever, it literally was growing up in Colorado, with Hispanics and Anglos, that's all I remember."
Tim also seems bothered by the fact that he can't use words like the N-word in his comedy act, and feels that it's an example of how we're, quote, "running backwards."
He later issued a statement saying, quote, "If I offended anyone it wasn't my intention."
