** Charlie once again says the word (uncensored!) in "Hero or Hate Crime?" In addition, the conflict of the episode is kicked off when Frank [[ItMakesSenseInContext saves Mac's life by calling him a faggot]], and they argue about whether or not that was acceptable.

* The image board 4 Chan [[DefiedTrope defies]] this trope, using the word "fag" to refer to ''everyone''. Anonymous who draw are "drawfags", writers are "writefags", and there are even a few Christians on the board[[note]]Don't ask how someone can use 4chan and still be a Christian. Just ''don't''.[[/note]] who refer to themselves as "Christfags". They also like to use the word "nigger" to refer to certain black people, much like the Chris Rock routine mentioned above. Interestingly, some Anons have forsaken the "-fag" suffix in favor of "-friend". The term's use as a suffix meaning "person" is also taken to its logical conclusion, and in threads about sexuality, you'll see "[[HypocriticalHumor straightfags]]," and yes-- "fagfags."

* A variation in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How The Light Gets In]]'', where Dean and Laurel are both [[RecoveredAddict recovered alcoholics]]. When Laurel is inexplicably resurrected, Felicity suggests [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay making sure its Laurel]] by offering her a glass of wine. Sara and Dean are both outraged by the idea, and a few seconds later Sara calls Oliver on his long standing ableism towards Laurel. Upon waking, Laurel quips to Dean that [[INeedAFreakingDrink she needs a drink]].
-->'''Dean:''' What? We can joke about it
-->'''Laurel:''' It's called GallowsHumor.

* Averted in ''Series/LukeCage.'' The title character gets [[BerserkButton pissed]] at hearing this word, even and ''especially'' if another black person uses it. His reactions range from going into a CharacterFillibuster or WorldOfCardboardSpeech or just plain kicking the user's ass.

* ''Series/DearWhitePeople'': This is the cause of Reggie's fight with a white student, the latter having said the word in repeating the lyrics of a rap song. Sam later also tells Gabe she'll say it, but he can't, though light-heartedly.

* Implicit by Raleigh, NC {{nerdcore}} outfit Music/SithClan: only the band's two black members use the n-word, the two white members avoid it.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe'': With the n-word in question being "nerd". That is, host Peter Sagal claims the right to make fun of nerds due to being one himself. He says the same of jokes about Jews and UsefulNotes/NewJersey.

[[folder:Talk Shows]]
* On ''Series/RealTimeWithBillMaher'', Maher faced heavy criticism for joking about being a ďhouse niggerĒ during an interview with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE). The following week, both [[Creator/IceCube rapper Ice Cube]] and Bernie Sanders advisor Symone Sanders were guests on the show and explained why Maher could not use the word, even during a comedy routine. Ice Cube in particular deconstructed the logic by which many white people believe they can use but still cannot. A clip of his comments is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnwiYdFaRfk linked here]] and is quoted [[Quotes/NWordPrivileges here]].
-->'''Ice Cube''': Itís in the lexicon Ö but thatís our word now. Thatís our word now, and you canít have it back.

%%* The page image comes from a VGCats parody of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2100nNGJc2o commercials like this one]] from the introduction of the PSP. Over a dozen such commercials were made, with squirrels as borderline racist [[JiveTurkey jive turkeys]], dustballs as Latinos, and talking baseballs with [[HahvahdYahdInMyCah Boston accents]].
