Bill Maher of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher weighed in on the Michael Brown shooting.
“You know what else I find disturbing is that everybody in America just sides with their own people and doesn't look at the facts... The cops,I saw on the news a couple of weeks ago,were wearing bracelets or something that said, ”I am Darren Wilson."Why do you want to throw your lot in with this plain murderer?
And Michael Brown's people. I'm sorry, but Michael Brown's people say he is a gentle giant. Well, we saw that video when he was in that 7-11. No, he wasn't a gentle. He was committing a robbery and he pushed that guy. He was acting like a thug, not a gentle giant. He certainly didn't deserve to be shot for it."
Many of Maher's fans seem to be jumping ship from his show after he made his comments:
Maher's opinions don't seem to be going over well with his fan base. On the other hand, Maher has never seemed to be one to care about that.
