Jesse Jackson May Pay For His Racist Rant

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rev. Jesse Jackson may have to put his money where his mouth is.

Last week, news broke of Jackson calling Barack Obama the n-word during an off-air conversation on FOX News.

Now, Jamie Masada, owner of the Laugh Factory comedy club, is asking Jackson to pay a hefty fine for his racist slip.

At the Laugh Factory, Masada has a rule that anyone who drops the n-bomb on stage has to cough up cash for their racial rant, and Rev. Jackson is no exception.

Masada says, “It was absolutely wrong. We charge a minimum of $50 every time someone says it, but I think he should pay more because he’s the first person to tell people not to use that word. He is a hypocrite.”

Masada – who’s fined comedians like Dave Chappelle and Michael Richards for using the n-bomb – assures that he’ll hunt Jackson down until he pays up.

He says, “I’ll go after him and take him to the Supreme Court of Comedy if he doesn’t pay.”
