Ice Cube has commented on the Bill Maher controversy, and will still be appearing on 'Real Time'.
However, the former N.W.A. star also questioned the nature of the outrage that has engulfed the conversation since has not been particularly constructive. He’s due to appear on Maher’s chat show ‘Real Time’ this Friday, and it seems likely that he’ll be taking the host to task over his throwaway, unscripted remark.
On last Friday’s episode (June 2nd) of HBO’s real time, Maher was speaking to Republican senator Ben Sasse when the politician invited him to “work in the fields” with him in his state of Nebraska.

Ben Affleck doesn't like Bill Maher's views on Islam, very much.
Ben Affleck called out Bill Maher over his “gross, racist, disgusting” ideas about Islam during a heated debate on the presenter’s Real Time show on Friday night. Affleck took time out of promoting his latest movie Gone Girl to appear alongside author Sam Harris, former chair of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele and Nicholas Kristof.

Maher set out his stall early, telling Harris, "You and I have been trying to make the case that liberals need to stand up for liberal principles," Maher said to fellow panelist, author Sam Harris. “Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles that liberals applaud for,” Maher continued, “…but then when you say in the Muslim world this is what's lacking, then they get upset.”

Maher, Affleck, and a panel of other guests had it out on the still controversial issue.
Ben Affleck and Bill Maher just couldn’t see eye to eye on the issue of islam during Friday night’s Real Time With Bill Maher. Affleck appeared alongside other panelists, including author Sam Harris. The actor/director/producer quickly got into a heated debate with Maher, over the host’s negative portrayal of islam and those, who practice it.
In his speech, Affleck defended tolerance and diversity.
Harris expressed his stance on the issue: "We can criticize Christians…but when you want to talk about the treatment of women, homosexuals and free thinkers in the Muslim world, liberals have failed us. The crucial point of confusion is we have been sold this meme of Islamaphobia –where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people, which is intellectually ridiculous."
