Report: John Mayer Not Really Racist, Just A Terrible Comedian


Hot on the heels of our story last night about how John Mayer's recent interruption of Kumail Nanjiani's stand-up set has some in the comedy community labeling him as an "accidental racist," Mediaite's Rachel Sklar has filed a firsthand report of the goings-on that evening (complete with pictures, no less!). She was sitting in the front-row that night and describes the goings-on as follows: "As someone who was in the audience, neither Kumail nor the audience [...] nor anyone afterward seemed to pick up this 'racist' thread. It was more the 'awkward' thread." Glad we got that settled! [Mediaite]
