EXCLUSIVE: Jonathan Rhys Meyers Used Racial Slur When Banned From Airline

“This happened a few years ago with Dog the Bounty Hunter who said the N-word in his house…He apologized profusely and is still apologizing…and when you really like somebody, cause y’all know when Jonathan comes on the show you know I pretty much promise my paycheck to Jonathan for one night– that was a joke!,” said Sherri Shepherd. “And when you really like and really admire someone when you find out when someone is drunk because when you’re drunk I believe that’s when stuff form the heart comes out.”

“[It’s called] Veritas– when you’re drinking the truth comes out. Mel Gibson was also drinking when he spouted all those anti-Semitic slurs,” Joy Behar pointed out.

“Stupidity definitely comes out!” Whoopi exclaimed.

A self-proclaimed fan of the troubled star, Sherri’s not sure what to think about the racial rant.

“I like Jon, I’m a fan, but I’m disappointed,” she added. “It makes you look at a person twice when they say something like that… am I still a fan? I think he’s a great actor, but I know Jonathan has had a lot of trouble in the past and I hope he gets it together because he loses fans.”

And Joy had a proposition for Jonathan.

“He needs to come on ‘The View’ and apologize profusely, like Dog did!”
