Comedian Reginald D Hunter has defended his controversial set at the PFA Player of the Year Awards.

The American used the n-word several times, as well as making jokes about Luis Suarez's ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

The 44-year-old told the Daily Mail: "First of all I had a nice time at the gig. I stayed two or three hours after it was over and if anybody was mad they didn't say anything.

"This whole issue about anti-racism and the nigger word, I didn't do anything different than I have been doing. But all of a sudden these people who want to control people through anti-racism laws get upset.

"Football has been under attack for a while and I'm just the latest tool that they are using so they can say 'football is fucked up'. Just because someone uses the word nigger doesn't mean they are racist in the same way they if they don't use it they're not racist."

Hunter has also denied reports that the PFA have asked him to return his fee for the performance.
