Difference being, Chris Rock didn't coin the word nigger, so his opinion on whether it's about behaviour is just his opinion.

Whereas Malki very much did make the comic in question, so what he says about what it refers to is the Word of God.

He wasn't the one who verbed it, though, so its current use is not bound by the cartoon. Informed by, but not bound by. Something some people fail to grasp.
