Nearly eight months after he was fired for making a racially and sexually degrading remark about the Rutgers women’s basketball team, the infamous Don Imus made his re-entrance back to radio today (Dec 3) and has two sidekicks that are raising eyebrows with critics. African-American Comedians Tony Powell and Karith Foster joined him and discussed race relations among other topics on the show.
Imus also made a statement regarding the ladies of the Rutgers Basketball team:
“I will never say anything in my lifetime that will make any of these young women at Rutgers regret or feel foolish that they accepted my apology and forgave me. And no one else will say anything on my program that will make anyone think I did not deserve a second chance.”
But despite his regret for the remarks made to the Rutgers women, Imus (known for being a controversial shock-jock) has made a vow to still not water-down his opinions saying:
“Dick Cheney is still a war criminal,Hillary Clinton is still Satan. And I’m going on the radio.”
