SHOCK: Even liberal Bill Maher says cultural appropriation 'was just made up'

Liberal comedian and commentator Bill Maher said Friday that cultural appropriation is 'just made up."

Maher later added that "these people just want to b*tch."

HBO host Bill Maher sounded off Friday night against “social justice warriors” and “cultural appropriation,” both of which are now commonplace on America’s college campuses perhaps more than anywhere else. 

Campus Reform reported extensively on cultural appropriation controversies around the country, particularly surrounding Halloween costumes or school mascots deemed to be offensive. At American University, even yoga came under scrutiny on the basis of cultural appropriation.

At some schools, students were even given checklists and flow charts to help them determine whether their Halloween costumes were “racist.”

However, as colleges trend more heavily toward combatting “cultural appropriation,” one liberal commentator doesn’t think it’s a problem.

”I feel like that’s something that was just made up,” Maher said Friday on his HBO show Real Time. “No one is hurt by cultural appropriation.” 

”These people just want to bitch,” Maher later added.
