Jessica Unhappy With John Mayer's Comments

It was just a matter of time before Jessica Simpson caught wind of John Mayer's Playboy interview that was released today.

He definitely didn't hold back when it came to expressing the details of their intimate life together when they were dating. He even referred to sex with Jess as "a drug."

We weren't sure if Jess would be flattered by John's comments, or completely mortified. But after reading her tweet this morning, it's safe to assume she's downright pissed!

Jess tweeted: "interesting day so far...hmm. at least i am boxing 2-a-days this week."

Perhaps she can picture her ex's mug on the bag?! And Jessica isn't the only put off my John's honesty in the article. He went into detail about his own manly parts, saying, "My d*ck is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fu*kin’ David Duke c*ck. I'm going to start dating separately from my d*ck. …I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s super hot and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, ‘Yeah, I sucked his d*ck. Whatever.'"

Neither actresses' reps responded with statements, but Katheryn Russell-Brown, director of the Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations at the University of Florida and author of The Color of Crime, tells Us Weekly that Mayer seems to be saying "black women are not just not his type, they're not in his class. They're beneath him."

Adds Laurie L. Mulvey, co-director of the Race Relations Project at Penn State University: "Both white people and people of color will be offended by Mayer commenting so flippantly about an issue that has caused so much pain in this culture, especially to black women."

Richard T. Ford, author of The Race Card: How Bluffing About Bias Makes Race Relations Worse, also told the mag, "Tragically, this is what passes for edginess for many celebrities today -- someone blurting out the most crude and insulting thing that comes to what we might charitably call his 'mind.' Mayer did say one smart in the interview: 'I think the world would be better off if I stopped doing interviews.' Amen."

Yeah, whatever happened to that theory?! All John does is run his mouth!

UPDATE: John Mayer has responded to the criticism of his interview by apologizing for using the "N" word. He tweeted: "Re: using the 'N word' in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word. And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged."

"And while I'm using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it's time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews... It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it's gotten out of hand and I've created somewhat of a monster."

"I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don't have the stomach for it. Again, because I don't want anyone to think I'm equivocating: I should have never said the word and I will never say it again."
