D.L. Hughley Calls Columbus Short’s Wife A “Thirsty B*tch” Who Should Just “Shut The F*ck Up!”

When we learned of the news that Columbus Short had been fired from the hit series, “Scandal” no one was surprised. In fact, we had discussed it just the week before in our Did Y’all See episode, speculating that Shonda was tired of hearing about Short’s deplorable behavior on the weekends and didn’t want the stench of his personal life negatively impacting the great work they were doing on set.

I know there are some true, die hard Harrison fans out there, but honestly, I don’t think Short’s absence will hurt the show one way or another. But apparently comedian and radio host, D.L. Hughley rides for Harrison/Columbus Short like no other. And if you have any doubt about that, you need look no further than a recent radio show where he discussed the allegations Tuere (aka Tanee) McCall-Short, Columbus’ wife, made against him and how, in his opinion, it would be best for her to simply “shut the f*ck up.”

This segment was levels and layers of wrong but we should first begin with the fact that Hughley doesn’t believe McCall-Short’s claims. He believes that since the couple is going through a divorce proceeding, she’s out to sully his reputation.

He said,

“The star of one of the hottest dramas in the country, chokes the f*ck out of his wife? That doesn’t ever happen. I don’t think it happened first off. Like the time Warren Sapp was getting ready to do the Super Bowl and some broad said that he raped her. There are just as many examples of women lying on men in the middle of divorce proceedings to get what they want, as there are men who actually do anything. My point is if he did what she’s alleging he did, she could still get all that she’s going to have and not bring it up now, when it damages his market value that she’s going to be impacted by. If he loses that job nobody’s living in Calabasas anymore.” 

Hughley goes on to say, “I guarantee you, three years from now she’s going to be thinking, “Damn, I should have shut the f*ck up. Cuz women always running out the mouth when they shouldn’t.” 

And then for comedic effect, as his female co-host Jasmine Sanders is speaking, he tunes out almost chanting “dizzy ass broad,“dizzy b*tch” in the background.

Sanders was trying to argue that McCall-Short didn’t run to the tabloids with news that her estranged husband beat her, she filed a police report and a restraining order and TMZ was the agency who learned of the news and broke the story.

Hughley dismissed her, saying that if it hadn’t gotten out she would have sold it to the media. When Sanders accused him of hating women, he said “I don’t hate women. I hate dumb b*tches. I hate women who act against their interests.” 

Sanders then suggested that maybe, perhaps McCall-Short was more concerned for her life than her actual lifestyle. Hughley couldn’t seem to wrap his mind around that one. Instead, he continued to berate McCall-Short, even admitting that if Columbus has an anger or abuse problem, it was Tuere’s fault for picking him. Hughley even managed to throw a little dirt on his own name in the process.

“When you’re very young, you’re very volatile. I’ve been in situations where the police were called. I don’t believe that every time someone says something in the heat of anger, they actually mean it. Everybody want a thug dude, a passionate dude, until you gotta live with your mother in an undisclosed location. You know what kind of dude you picked. Stop it.” 

Hughley’s comments are so disgusting, so vile that I had a hard time believing they came from his mouth. But I listened to the audio and that is indeed him. To hear it is far worse than reading it. There is true loathing behind his voice as if he knows McCall-Short personally. As if she alone represents the women who stand to threaten the little bit of wealth black entertainers have amassed–largely through the support of black women, I might add. I’m not here to psychoanalyze Hughley…professionally but by his own admission his mother wasn’t the most supportive woman in his life. On CNN, he detailed an incident where he won his mother an apple at the fair and she bit into it and said, “This apple is rotten just like you are.”  Judging by his comments on the radio show, it seems that perhaps he hasn’t dealt with those issues and they’re showing up in his opinions and treatment of women.

I’m so tired of hearing men say dumb stuff like “I don’t hate women, I hate b*tches.” Though they would like you to believe otherwise, please believe at the end of the day, in a heated argument, the words are interchangeable. In Hughley’s mind, with no concrete proof, he’s determined that this woman is of low moral standing and she deserves to be called a bitch in a public forum for reporting her domestic abuse? If that’s not woman hating, silencing an allegedly abuse victim, a woman with a child, for the sake of a man’s career, I don’t know what is. Hughley believes that Columbus’ three measly seasons on “Scandal” are more important than McCall-Short’s life being threatened. If you listen to the tape, you’ll hear him argue with Sanders, when she suggests that Columbus could have killed her, “He wasn’t gon’ kill her.” 

Negro, please! You sound crazy.

I understand that women do lie but no more than men. I would love to compare the number of times women have been caught or admitted to lying about being raped or abused vs. the number of times men have raped and beaten women. I’m willing to bet good money that the latter far outweighs the former. I’m not naive enough to believe women don’t lie. And I find those women deplorable and counterproductive to those who have actually endured these tragedies, but the lie exists because rape and domestic abuse are so prevalent, it’s believable.

I don’t know one hundred percent whether McCall-Short is lying or not. Personally, I never doubted the validity of her claims. In fact, knowing that McCall-Short had attempted to file for divorce from Columbus late last year let me know that she had been trying to end this relationship for some time now. Then there was the incident of Columbus fighting someone in a bar because the troll suggested that he had some type of personal relationship with his wife. If we’re going to go along with Hughley’s argument, Columbus who is the “star” of a hit tv show, wouldn’t be knocking random dudes in the bar unconscious, he has too much to lose. But that’s not the case. We’ve seen firsthand that when he’s angry, he resorts to violence. Furthermore, the bar fight happened because the man suggested he was involved with McCall-Short which is right in line with the police report she filed in which she described Short putting a knife to her throat and asking her to name all of the men she’d slept with. There’s a pattern. Does that mean I know without a shadow of a doubt that he did abuse her? No, but I can’t understand what leads Hughley to suggest that she is out for the money and simultaneously trying to destroy his reputation in the process.

My hope is that the community takes Hughley to task for his comments, that, if he doesn’t apologize to McCall-Short, that he really reflects on his poisonous mindset, seeing that he has two daughters and a wife and, in the best case scenario, sits on someone’s couch and work these things out.

I doubt this will happen as his despicable ways and misogyny have been the norm for so long and have made him quite a bit of money. But one can only hope.

What do you think about Hughley’s comments about Tuere McCall-Short?

You can listen to a majority of the radio show in the video below but be forewarned it’s hard to stomach.

  • NeptuneLady

    Could be some truth to what he is saying. The fact is, this wife accuses Short of doing something wrong. That is not proof. I’m not condemning the man on what this soon to be ex-wife said.

  • tlarosa

    This is the same man who says it is okay to sleep in the bed with his grown daughters. I mean, if this lady was really worried about her lifestyle then she wouldn’t have filed the report. There is something more going on and and maybe her life is in trouble. If something like this happened to his daughter then I bet he wouldn’t be sayin gthe same thing. I believe that it is bull crap like this that cause many black women (and women in general) to not want to report abuse to the authority. I saw a black lady getting beat and punched in the parking lot and another customer called the police and she got mad and left with the man. Blame the victim is what he is doing. I stopped supporting this man a very long time ago.

  • experience is best teacher

    Columbus ex-wife is a sore loser…the relationship died…move on…a hit series doesn’t make it any better…maybe for a while…but times up…don’t make up stuff about Columbus..and discredit all the real abuse victims….don’t fight his girlfriends..its wasted energy…go to court get your alimony…child support whatever…you reap what you sow..start sowing some positive fresh new seed..by wishing Mr. Short goodluck…and thank him for the positive things he did bring to your life…DL has just seen this play out before in his family…just as I have

  • notdudanymore

    He must hate woman. He is irrelavant. I would hate to see a man do something like this if he has girls. Anything to get back in the news. All I know SHORT is a punk and the video just shows her on top of another woman he brought there. It show nothing before it. It shows a lack of character on Shorts part. Why would you bring another woman to the house but to bait your wife into a fight. Any woman would have reacted that way. standard tactic and instead of breaking up the fight he is video tapping. As Diddy would say straight up BITCHASSNESS going on here and I am glad he is fired and I have no tolerance for men who abuse their woman end of story.

  • Kozette Livinglifewithoutyou F

    I TOTALLY AGREE D L HUGHLEY! SMDH!

  • dubcc

    After seeing his wife in that other video fighting, I’m thinking both of them have a whole lot to do with the problem that’s been created. Regardless, DL’s views are still out of touch and could have been said in a much more professional way if he had a disagreement. Domestic violence is no joke and should always be taken seriously.

  • loni

  • Absentminded

    Sooo nowhere in the media are females plotting for the come up??? IF columbus did those things then they will come out when he’s on trial, but how are you condemning the man before he’s given his side??? DL should probably chill tho.. Lol

  • Sharita Peyton

    Wow I use to like watching D.L. doing stand-up comedy (old stuff) But now I see a different side of him. I know he’s in the entertainment business but I think he went way too far. We don’t know the whole story of what went down but we should respect their privacy even if it’s out in the open. D.L. needs to get his priorities straight before he gets himself into trouble because karma can be a you know what-we already got sterling out of the NBA for good. So better watch what you say D.L. or you’ll be next. And when did we did start calling women thirsty? (I must be late on that one)

  • will

    “The star of one of the hottest dramas in the country, chokes the f*ck out of his wife? That doesn’t ever happen.” Of course it happens. What a douche.

  • PivotTable

    Hughley is a hurt man. Somebody hurt him and now he has a vendetta against all women. He needs therapy.

    I don’t even watch DWTS, but I happened on one episode and I think he had some constructive criticism from the judges…. his reaction was very unattractive. He took everything personally and reacted like a teenager who was told to clean his room. It was weird.

    So yeah… dude has issues.

  • IllyPhilly

    He was never funny, how did he become famous?

  • denise

    Just because There are more women who DON’T report abuse than women who do for this very reason.
    Yes, D.L Hughley’s mom seems like a monster but just because a man has a good relationship with his mother doesnt always make him a good man or good to women. The prisons are packed with men who love their mommas.

  • Cheryl Robinson

    D.L. You might need to be the one to shut the F**K up. If this young lady gets hurt by this fool what then, domestic violence is not a joke and it happens in rich homes just like it does in poor homes. And the attitude you are displaying is the very reason the rich often get away with it.

  • Nita

    I am shocked and appalled at DL closed-minded comments. I can’t understand how he’s still able to maintain female listeners. He certainly has lost me as a listener. I can’t stand behind someone who makes such vile comments, especially towards women. Someone needs to call him out!

  • TNT

    DL has a lot of self hatred to spit such venom. I hope he gets help with that before he mess around and lose his job because of his anger issues and his apparent low self esteem! FIND JESUS D…IN A HURRY!!

  • Me

    And just like in court, everyone on here believes the woman no matter what she says its always taken as fact. Its funny how she has never had to call the police before but now that they are getting divorced she does. Im not saying he didnt do it but its always funny how quick we are to accept a womans charges without any proof but if he were to call the police and say she did the same thing no one would take his side immediately or everyone would call him a punk for allowing himself to be done like that by a woman.

    I dont know if he did it or not but i do know women do lie a lot when going through divorce in order to have a judgement go their way. they say abuse or child abuse so they can get custody of kids. so please look at the entire picture of this and stop going off your first instincts and stereotype and believing that the man is always wrong or abusive and stop assuming that the woman is always so innocent and never lie. The courts are set up for woman to win no matter what. even if they are caught lying they still dont get any punishment for lying so why wouldnt she say he hurt her.

    Please take 3 minutes and watch the clip below. it happens all the time.
    Please go to youtube and search, the site wont let me post the link:

    Tell em DL you can’t trust anything these sneaky opportunistic b****s say none of us know what happened with Short and his wife but we do know another brothers career takes a hit and his toxic broad is somewhere in the mix move smarter my brothers

    • will

      Wow. How sad. Such misogyny and bitterness.

  • soisaid

    its his show and his opinion. either we like it or we don’t. it doesnt’ mean anything he said was true. that would be between him, columbus and tanee if they chose to address it. we all make comments on blogs about entertainers we know nothing about nor have met. also, him refering to the wife as a b!tch is not collar grabbing shock. how many times do we hear the words b!tch and hoe in rap lyrics by famous rappers and just overlook it? smh

  • Howdy

    I do agree with Hughley on some points. Age is a huge factor in some of our choices/actions! Shorts type of volatile behavior couldn’t have been new. He had to have shown some of it while dating and we make our choice as to who we want.

  • Nya Jacobsen

    He has issues with women. And it sounds like he is or used to be a perpetrator. Having the police called out during domestic disputes only applies to a handful of people. And you can control what comes out your mouth in a heated argument. It’s your mouth, who else is suppose to control it?

  • TrillProphecies93

    I swear each and every day seems like more black men are turning into tap dancing koons for the white man. On top of that they wonder why they get no respect. Sorry but no other race of man will go this hard against his own race of women. Its almost unheard of, I think its sickening they act like black women are the only ones who act a certain way when all women act alike. This man is just angry at black women in general, any man that has a extreme hate for women either secretly wants to be one or has something else to hide. Wonder why his name is D.L. Hughley lolz? His name says it all, but its ok dude I don’t judge… He should of kept his Uncle Tom mouth closed. Nobody really knows of this sambo anyway so he should stop talking like he’s big ish.

  • FromUR2UB

    D L Hughley is just a bitter ugly dude who resents that women find him ugly.

  • anonymouse

    and people say ‘short man syndrome’ is a myth. The ones who have it HATE women and call them b!tches because they’re not first choice. Hughley is embodying that right now.

  • LaCeda Johnson-Williamson

    When he says, she acted against her own interest and should not be believed. THAT is the very reason why she should be believed is that she did act against her own interest. WHY would she lie about something that would only HURT her and her children in the end. He did exactly what she accused him of, only a fool like D.L Hughley would believe otherwise.

  • Guest11

    Maybe he should take his own advice!!! In the past he has spoken about his biological father not being there. Perhaps he has Mommy issues about that and obviously has yet to resolve them!!!

  • Ms. Black ink pen

    1. One of my goals for 2014 was to write for MN, this article makes me reconsider. I really do not care about what your contributors do in their personal lives but from plantation to boardroom the word NEGRO should not be used in professional circles by any race. This goes for any other previously derogatory language used to belittle any race/class of people. Please maintain your high professional standards. Please and Thank you.

    2. The argument of this article is not logically sound. It makes the point (and the thesis) of Hughley’s argument to be that she should shut up because it is not in her best interest to come out with the story and the point he makes is right! Maybe if her husband was dirt poor then speaking out would enable her to get free mental healthcare but realistically, her alimony can afford her a really nice professional and she can afford the help she needs. Now that he is fired and his other endorsements and possibly other contracts go out through the door, his earnings will impact on what she gets. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing. Know that this will not stop his love life or even slow it down because like minded women will still want him.

    She did good by showing her child to get out of such situations, but now both parents’ reputations are tinted by persons taking sides and only the child will pay the price for that. So I really hope it did happen while being sorry that she had to suffer.

    • Olivia

      ” she should shut up because it is not in her best interest to come out with the story and the point he makes is right!”

      She didn’t come out with this story. She alleges via the police report that she was assaulted and threatened by her husband so she called the police and ultimately filed a restraining order. It was TMZ, a gossip site that actively seeks gossip on celebrities, that alerted the public. How on earth is it in her best interest not to contact the police and keep quiet when her husband put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her? Columbus Short has a history of assaulting others and was just recently arrested for assault on a man in a bar. We don’t know what happened between him and his wife, but it is not her actions that caused him to get fired from Scandal. He did that to himself because of his reckless behavior.

    • Sunf1ower_Jones

      I hope you aren’t really a woman. If you are, I hope you don’t have children. I swear the more I read some comments, the more I realized that the educational system has failed us as a country. Did you not read the article or are you just spouting off like some of the bitter men on this board who OBVIOUSLY are bitter.

      You are implying she should keep quiet because of money? Is that would you would tell your daughter? Geez, I swear, I’m scared for the world our children are growing up in.

      What’s more, your last paragraph states, “She did good.” Which one is it, Ms. Black?

  • mmmdot

    This: “Hughley dismissed her, saying that if it hadn’t gotten out she would have sold it to the media.” tells me all I need to know about this misogynistic hateful a$$ troll. He can’t even admit that he’s wrong when he’s confronted with the FACT that all Tuere Short did was file a police report and a restraining order. He so badly wants to believe that any claim of domestic abuse made by a woman is a lie, that even the facts aren’t going to stand in the way of him looking like a malicious JACKA$$. I hope neither one of his daughters goes to him for help if their boyfriend/husband ever hits them. Even worse is that this jerk has the audacity to diminish what kind of danger her life was in! “He wasn’t gon’ kill her.” Who the fxck does he think he is to invalidate what happened to her because *he* has a problem with women? Furthermore, what are 50% of all your husband’s assets going to do for you IF YOU ARE DEAD? The entire point of his screed was to literally silence and discourage women from calling law enforcement on black men if they are being abused. What about trying to discourage abusive black men from physically assaulting women?!?! At every single turn this a$$hole was making excuses for bxtch a$$ men who beat on women like punks. I will never support anything he’s in ever again. Disgusted.

    • Ms. black in pen

      I would not be surprised if he is the first to kill for his daughters even if its because he “trained them better”.

      I’m a woman, I know how real domestic violence is and having said that I hope that like many ordinary women, she is just thankful to have survived the alleged ordeal, train her child and future children to be better and seek to repair the damage in her life.

      • mmmdot

        It’s seriously terrible how many women and children experience DV at some point in their lives. At some point we all need to realize that it’s got to start with educating boys when they are young to respect women and to never use their size or their strength to control or intimidate women. As for “men” like D.L. Hughley, I just don’t *get* their mentality. He doesn’t even seem to believe in holding the men who physically abuse women *CRIMINALLY* or *ETHICALLY* responsible for their actions on any level at all. SMH, I’m sure his reaction to one his daughters dealing with DV would be dysfunctional in some way, shape, or form. And I’m worried for those girls right now, because, seriously how do misogynists like Hughley raise well-adjusted, confident daughters?

  • lovechild

    DL is the bish that needs to shut the f*** up. His misogyny is showing like a mutha*******. I stopped supporting his sorry azz a long time ago, so I had no idea he even had a radio broadcast. His disrespectful rant doesn’t surprise me, but it burns me up nevertheless. If a petition arises to shut his virulent radio broadcast down, I will gladly sign it.

    • CaribbeanGlow

      Good idea! Someone should start one! We have to put our foot down on this trend of attacking black women no matter what.

      • lovechild

        I saw it on a headline on this site that one has been started, I will get further information and sign, we need to hit him where it hurts and thats in the pockets, leave him with no other audience but like minded degenerates.

        • CaribbeanGlow

          Agreed! Try and post it here when you find it! Thank you!

  • DoinMe

    I didn’t know he was a woman-hater with momma issues. Now I know what the “D.L” stands for.

  • southerngirl

    speaking of thirst, why DL always trying to stay relevant? his thirst is real.

  • blackdolphin

    I see that the Jacka$$ is braying ….again!! Have some seats DL. We still ain’t checking for you.

  • An Observation

    So I guess it’s clear how things are ran in his home……or would his wife beg to differ?

  • kiki j

    Nothing this man says is credible. He makes a career off feeding others insecurities. I don’t respect anything he says. He’s ignorant. The anti-abuse supporters will tear him apart for this unless of course of he’s so irrelevant that only the urban community will even here of it. If that’s the case I understand why he’s so angry. No one’s checking for Hughley.

  • Andrea

    I didn’t know he HAD a radio show!

  • Madge

    I don’t like his radio show and want it off the air. His mean-spirited rants are uplifting to no one … such a waste of a golden opportunity to inform and educate listeners.

  • impactdesignmedia@yahoo.com

    Ok I get it, you don’t like the fact he would even dare stick up for a man who was accused of beating or threatening to beat a woman. BUT what if he is right? “WE” don’t know him, nor do we know her. But he does??? Maybe, just maybe he is speaking from experience of what he has seen from the relationship. I reserve my judgement until it comes out that Columbus Short actually did say these things.

    • Nadifa Foulds

      I don’t think the issue is what he believes, but how he has chosen to openly communicate it. I think it is quite possible that the wife could be lying, and moreover I think a lot of people sympathize and want the best for Short’s health and career regardless of whether he is guilty or not. If D.L. cares about Short too and had any remote sense of image and public perception then he would not have said what he did. He should have at most stated a positive expression of support and kept it moving. Now if he doesn’t give two flying you-know-what’s about what people think (most likely he doesn’t) than touché.

  • enufalready

    he’s an arrogant pompous a##

  • Olivia

    Isn’t it ironic that he claims to despise women who are always “running out the mouth” yet his whole career is based on him doing the same thing? His stand up is nothing more than him running off at the mouth on various rants and all he does on his radio show is gossip about celebrities and offer his unsolicited and irrelevant opinion on current events. All he is a mouth! I’ve seen him on everything from The Tonight Show to Bill Maher and he behaves himself like a petty gossiping woman. What full grown man offers his opinion of another man’s marriage?

    I saw him at the airport in Dallas and I swear he was wearing foundation. Maybe he dislikes women because he wants to be one…..?

  • On_Point

    He should be the last one talking, since his koon a s s mafe negative comments concerning black women.

  • Reallytruly

    Giving me more reasons to dislike this clown! Plus he has a wife too (sadly) and supporting abuse against women, personally if I was his wife I would be GONE!

    Certain points DL made I see where he is coming from but he didnt need to come off so bitter and Btch calling, he himself does need to receive counseling if he has issues with women.

  • misss

    I have to agree with him. Its a way to go about things. No Colombus is not right if he did those things but I dont think she went directly to the media herself a lot of the info is public record. She should have divorced him the first or second time and if they get back together after this time which I doubt because no one is going to hire him, Hugley is right nobody will be living in Calabassas smh.

    “I guarantee you, three years from now she’s going to be thinking, “Damn, I should have shut the f*ck up”….. Wow. It’s a pity his clairvoyance doesn’t extend to himself, because nothing he has said is helping Columbus Short’s situation. Drake on Kobe’s wife, Donald Trump on the recent Sterling fiasco; some people should just refrain from speaking publicly lest they embarrass themselves and the person their supporting.

  • kim

    Thats his opinion. I personally don’t think its wise until the facts are out for ANYONE to take sides at this point. Am I angry at what he said…no ….do I agree with some of his comments. …sorry but yeah. …because I know some women like that. All women aren’t victims and all men aren’t automatically guilty. Sorry

    • Sunf1ower_Jones

      Yeah, sorry is right. That’s both you and D.L., but it’s typical. I don’t know if you are a woman or a bitter man, but if you are a woman, you are the kind that sets up back 100 years. You don’t know if she’s wrong either. If you are a man, then it’s typical.

      It’s all about possessions to some people. It’s better her life than some dang house. No, all women aren’t victims, but many are. I suggest you volunteer at a domestic violence shelter. Why would she lie about being abused? He was also accused of knocking out someone at a bar. Do you suppose that person lied too? The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and that’s why he got fired from Scandal.

  • BabyBlue

    D.L has always left a sour taste in my mouth. I never did like him. What a j e r k

  • Demi

    Everbody knows, or should know DL has a distain for women. We all know the type, seen some up here. Women haters rear their ugly heads when the woman has the nerve to complain about being treated badly by a man. Sad Negro

  • Taz

    Never like D.L. He was never funny to me

  • lazy2010

    wow 2014 is the year huh? Everyone is talking crazy and showing their true colors, Hughley is a clown

  • Jill O’Really

    He stopped being funny in 2007. Is this the kind of mentality he’s teaching his daughters? I think he needs medication and an enema.

  • C’mon son

    D.L. Hughley is a sorry excuse for a human being and definitely a man. I was embarrassed that he was even featured on Kings of Comedy. I don’t listen to his misogynistic radio show. All you have to do is flip by for less than 5 seconds to hear him bashing women; specifically black women. SMH. He’s just another victim blamer and abuse apologist.

    • TrillProphecies93

      You can turn on any media outlet and hear brothers bashing sisters. Its at a new sickening level now.

  • Name

    This article just confirms why I never liked D.L. Hughley. He comes off as a self-hating negro who gets a kick out of bashing black women. We dont know what happened between Columbus and his wife but that’s their business and we have no right to pick sides. Domestic violence is nothing to be taken lightly.

    • CaribbeanGlow

      I had to look up his wife out of curiosity. She is black and they’ve been married since 1986! I hope she is okay… God only knows what she has put up with all this time.

      • Ms_Keke

        Yes she is beautiful..they’ve been married since 2005

        • Yvette

          CaribbeanGlow is correct. D.L. and his wife have been married since 1986.

        • mycalah

          You are talking about Columbus and his wife who got married in 2005.

    • mycalah

      Yeah bc most people are saying Columbus needs to get help bc that is obvious. Most people are not calling him out of his name but saying he is messing up and needs to seek professional help.

  • Kristen

    There was ALWAYS something about him I NEVER liked. Total @ss.

    • CaribbeanGlow

      Same here! I didn’t know what it was, but he was always just “ick”… Always made my skin crawl just to look at him.

  • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

    never liked him, never found him funny, he’s a short man & an azz!

  • rainydaze80

    his true republican colors are shining. he probably believes that bs about a woman’s body being able to shut down a “legitimate rape” as well.

    • Annalytical

      “the Republican National Convention literally looks like Nazi Germany.” -D.L. Hughley
      He is not a Republican.

      • TrillProphecies93

        No he is just a koon

        • rainydaze80

          That just made my day! lol

          • TrillProphecies93

            lolz your more than welcome, I’m here to open people’s eyes to the koon phenomena that’s going on lately!

  • Tonie

    What a dckhd! Never liked him…

  • aguy

    why care what any entertainer says , its his job to get noticed. look at V. whatever her name is , with the Clipper “scandal” (like how i threw that one in) . But all she is, all anyone is , from DL to any Kardashian , to any “Real Housewhore of Wherever”, is just begging for the attention to get noticed and will do/say/act anyway to get it. Ratings = $$$$

    • YepYep

      Absolutely! Anythimg to stay relevant!!!

    He’s vile and has venom for women clearly. He has a lot of hatred for women. I see that same hardly disguised contempt in a lot of black men.

    • Val

      After Don Imus called the women on Rutgers basketball team “nappy-headed h*es” DL went on The Tonight Show and said that he agreed with Don Imus. Anyone can go to youtube and search DL and “nappy-headed h*oes” to see it. So, this man has a history of being on the record hating Black women. But, if there’s no price to pay for it then he’s just going to keep doing it.

      • Madge

        Funny you’d bring this up. Just this past weekend, I told somebody that years ago, he laughed off the Don Imus comments and added his two cents — saying that the Rutgers women were indeed nappy-headed hoes. I remember him saying this so vividly. Thanks a lot for standing up for black women, D.L.!

        • mycalah

          I thought he was trying to be funny and thought some comedians go too far but I think this is not just comedy with him but he has some serious issues.

      • CaribbeanGlow

        Yes, that incident has been on my mind amidst this Clippers distraction. On TMZ they had like twelve black faces, set up on a grid like the Brady Bunch, all black men enraged basically because this white man dissed black men. They were mute when the Don Imus thing happened, and any time black women are the target of racism…. such as when John Legend’s then-fiance referred to Quvenzhane Wallis as a brat, amidst her breakout role getting acclaim. A newspaper called her a c u n t too, and no famous black men protected her. And that story was everywhere.

        Edit: Apparently Levar Burton checked The Onion for calling Quvenzhane out of her name.

        • ThatWoman

          Yes her.behind does look like an onion!!

      • yaz

        those utger women were a bit ratchet tho

        • Yvette

          How?

        • Guest

          What was ratchet about them?

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        Oh yes Black Men are forever disrespecting black women. From their music, to their blatant almost joy like glee in condemning us and joining racists in calling a bunch of young, intelligent, athletic, and educated young ladies ‘nappy-headed h*es’. Yet they cry foul that “black women don’t stick by us” No. they do. To a fault. I’ve never ever heard any other race take a public forum to bash their own women. They don’t do it.

  • janelle

    He’s a clown. If he doesn’t know their situation personally, he shouldn’t be making assumptions and calling this woman out of her name. I’m sure he wouldn’t like it if someone called one of his daughters a “thirsty b*tch.”

    • TX2Hi

      He is a devil. Like most bm who have mommy issues, this b it ch has managed to take his hate and carry it around like a badge of honor 20 years later! useless scum
