It's OK That Chevy Chase Used The N-Word, See, Because Richard Pryor Gave Him Permission
Caught up? Good. Just one more thing we have to touch upon before we move on: Remember when Chevy Chase dropped an N-bomb and ended up briefly shutting down production on Community before he ultimately left the series? Yeah, well, about that.
In an interview with Howard Stern, Joel McHale explained -- uncomfortably, like he had no desire to be on Stern's show -- that when McHale attempted to calm Chase down, he would try to fight McHale. Specifically, on the N-word fracas, it turns out it was TOTALLY OK what Chevy Chase said, because Richard Pryor totally gave him permission.
I didn't realize that's how it worked. So, in order to use the N-word freely, all we need to do is get permission from a black friend? Good to know. I'm going to keep that information in my back pocket.
