Bill Burr Reacts to Wife's Gesture and Defends Freedom of Expression

In a viral moment at UFC 295, comedian Bill Burr’s wife, actress Nia Renee Hill, was caught on camera giving a two-finger salute to former President Donald Trump at Madison Square Garden. The incident unfolded as Trump sat cageside with UFC CEO Dana White, Kid Rock, and Tucker Carlson. Hill’s gesture drew attention and controversy, prompting Bill Burr to react to the situation on The Rich Eisen Show.

Bill Burr expressed support for his wife’s actions, stating,

“I love my wife. You know where you stand with her.”

He emphasized the importance of freedom of expression, highlighting that her gesture did not lead to any arrests and reflected the spirit of a nation where people can express themselves freely.

Burr downplayed the controversy, pointing out that the UFC event was a gathering of fight fans, not a political rally. He humorously remarked,

Despite the uproar, Bill Burr stood by his wife’s actions, describing her as “hilarious” and taking a playful jab at those who took offense.
