Nigger Nigger Nigger Nigger

Damon Wayans was banned from the Laugh Factory yesterday after he dropped the "N-Bomb" sixteen times on Sunday at the infamous comedy club, now known as the stage that killed the career of Michael "Kramer" Richards.

"I'll be damned if the white man uses that word last," Wayans, the star of such films as "Mo' Money", reportedly said.

The Sunset Strip landmark recently warned comedians that they would be fined a whopping $20 for each time they uttered the racial slur (that is typically deemed less offensive coming from the mouths of African-Americans), which is why Wayans brought a handful of cash on stage with him as he performed his 20-minute act.

The comedian began his raucous routine by saying "Give yourselves a big round of applause for coming down and supporting 'Nigger Night,'" according to TMZ.

The $320 fine -- and three-month ban -- were confirmed by his rep, the gossip site said.

Unlike our friends at the Laugh Factory, LAist still believes that the freedom of speech doesn't come with a $20 price tag per word. And we find the hysterical knee-jerk reaction of the use of any words uttered by a former television star whose meltdown was captured on a cameraphone... hysterical.
