Bill Maher is a smug, arrogant, bigoted, and condescending you-know-what
Not to mention hateful and offensive. And according to Tommy Stevenson of the Tuscaloosa News, Bill Maher owes Tuscaloosa a big, fat apology. (Follow-ups here and here.) Even Andrew Sullivan - who has about as much contempt for Alabama and the South as Bill Maher does - agrees.
As a former resident of Tuscaloosa, condolences would be more appropriate than an apology, but let's not get unrealistic.
