Comedienne Lisa Lampanelli was caught in a Twitter storm on Sunday night when she tweeted a photo of herself and “Girls” creator and star, Lena Dunham, all while using the N-word.

Lampanelli, who is known for her controversial stand ups, points out tons of instances in her life where she has dated black men, or in general makes jokes about other races, so maybe she felt that it was okay to use the N-word.
If you haven’t seen her comedy take a look at the video below.
Bloggers such as Perez Hilton, says she doesn’t mean it in a negative sense at all (which Lampanelli agrees), so the usage of the word is acceptable.
Lampanelli spoke out about her use of the word, click the next page for the video.
