TO APOLOGISE FOR RACIST JOKE
Firstly, this is not about making Bill Maher a scapegoat and before you disregard this thinking 1D fans are angry because of Zayn Malik, think again.This is about how islamophobia, racism and discrimination of ANY kind is wrong, shouldn't be ignored and must end.
Bill Maher publicly not only insulted but also discriminated against Zayn Malik with an islamophobic terrorist joke, which was broadcast on television last night. (04/04/2015) "Where were you during the Boston Marathons?" -- followed by a picture of Zayn next to the Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
This is completely unacceptable. Racism should not become normalised especially on NATIONAL TELEVISION. Bill Maher and whoever wrote the script, need to be severely disciplined and at least apologise to show that this type of behaviour is NEVER ok.
Millions watch his TV show meaning he has an influence on many people, the fact that people in the audience laughed is proof of his negative influence.
