John Mayer Apologizes For Racial Slur In 'White Supremacist' Interview

John Mayer is apologizing for using the N-word in a new interview with 'Playboy' magazine.

"I am sorry," says Mayer. "I should have never said the word and I will never say it again. And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself."

"It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged. I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don't have the stomach for it."

This from the singer who also told the magazine in the same interview that sex with Jessica Simpson (photosJessica Simpson photos) was like 'sexual napalm'.

Mayer used the slur when discussing the black community and why he doesn't date black women.

"Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?,'" said Mayer. "If you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n---er pass But I said, 'I can't really have a hood pass. I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We’re full.'"

"My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I've got a Benetton heart and a f--kin' David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my dick. I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

"And Kerry Washington. She's superhot, and she's also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she'd be like, 'Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever.' And you'd be like, 'What? We weren't talking about that.'"

Mayer's remarks caused outrage with his Twitter followers, one of whom aptly wrote: "They don't make rehab centers for being an asshole."
