Comedian Reginald D Hunter caused controversy at the PFA awards last night by repeatedly using the word "n*****."
Hunter, who appears regularly on Have I Got News For You, started his set with a joke about Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who was banned for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra last season.
The audience included former Chelsea player Paul Elliott, who resigned from the FA for using the word "n*****" in a text message, and the association's chairman David Bernstein who stripped John Terry of the England captaincy after an incident with Anton Ferdinand.
PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor reportedly dismissed the controversy, saying: "Well he's a comedian, isn't he?"
