*TMZ went straight to Al Sharpton for his take on Larry Wilmore calling President Obama  “my n**ga” at the end of his White House Correspondent’s Dinner set.

The longtime civil rights activist is not happy with Wilmore.

“Larry standing up there using the N-word in front of that kind of crowd to the President of the United States,” Sharpton told TMZ’s Harvey Levin, was “very inappropriate.”

Levin suggested that Obama “seemed okay with it.”

“Oh I don’t think he seemed okay with the n-word,” Rev. Sharpton replied, going on to suggest that the president was trying to be a good sport by not reacting in outrage when it happened.

  1. I’m white and I love Larry’s show, I DVR it all the time. I agree with the Reverend though, totally disrespectful to call Obama the N word, even if he did not meant it negatively. He’s the President of the United States for Christ’s sake!!!! Jeez show some respect!!!!
