Nigger comedian Reginald D Hunter said today that he apologised unreservedly for using the word "Footballer" in a comedy routine. "I don't know what came over me" he mumbled in an embarrassed confession to Philip Schofield on This Morning.
"If I wasn't black, y'all would see I was blushing to mah roots. I ain't nevah used such language before, massah. Where I come from, we look up to dem footballers - we would do anything just to black their boots. I had no ideah they was seen as such scum of de earth over heah! Anytime y'all want to organise a lynch mob to string up dem racist basterds, just hand me de white pointy hat and de flamin' cross, an I'm wid yo!
