A woman uses TikTok to slam a comedian on a carnival cruise for allegedly using the N-word during his show.
The woman, who goes by the name Pamela Frilot (@thepamelafrilot), says comedian Rob O’Reilly repeatedly used the insult before telling viewers to “get the fuck out” if they were offended. One of Frilot’s recent videos shows a six-second clip of the comedian on stage, but the video has no sound.
“So just now on Carnival Cruise and it’s perfectly fine to hire someone who uses the N-word multiple times on their show and when the issue was raised he said and I quote ‘if you’re offended, get out ‘” the video reads onscreen text.
Get me off this ship!!

In another video, Frilot explains that she doesn’t have a video of the comedian saying the N-word because viewers have been asked not to record on comedy shows. She readily complied with the request until O’Reilly’s alleged insults surfaced.
Viewers applauded the TikToker for reaching out, although some users said it was “strange” that she didn’t have audio of the comedian saying the N-word.
“Idk why people want proof or the actual audio of him saying it. Why can’t you believe her? This man does stand up on a cruise,” commented one viewer. “Why are people trying to give him the benefit of the doubt? He’s nobody and people want to believe he might be innocent.”
“Sister you give time thank you for sharing this video and spreading awareness!! WE WILL HELP YOU GET HOME SAFE GIRLIE,” commented another viewer.
An IMDB page lists O’Reilly as a comedian with appearances on Comedy Central Live in GothamNBC’s Last Comic Standand on the Tonight show as Jay Leno’s correspondent. His Twitter and Facebook accounts appear to be either deleted or suspended.
A Carnival Cruise Line spokesman emailed the Daily Dot that O’Reilly’s future performances have been canceled.
“We do not tolerate this language or behavior,” they wrote. “The person in question will no longer be welcome on Carnival ships and the remaining scheduled performances have been cancelled.”
The Daily Dot reached out to Frilot via a TikTok comment.
