Was Scandal Star Columbus Short High or Drunk during his Tom Joyner Interview?

By  |  244 Comments

Scandal star Columbus Short has a career that is barely hanging on by a thread.   His character, Harrison Wright, was possibly taken out by Olivia Pope’s father during the season finale.  Observers think that leaving his character on the edges of the script allows the producers to decide if they want him to “live” next season or not.

Columbus has been charged multiple times with battering his wife, and also threatening to kill her and kill himself.  He also hauled off and punched a man in a bar, which has made people question his mental health and self-control.   Then, he made things worse for himself during an interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, where he referred to Tom as a “n*gger” during the interview.

Short used his publicist to get back to the TJMS to try to explain what happened during the unfortunate morning.   He didn’t address the reasons that his wife, Tanee McCall has filed for divorce for the third time.  Instead, he tried to explain himself in a way that kind of makes sense, but doesn’t when you listen to his interview.  When asked specifically if he was high or drunk during the conversation, his answer was the expected “heck no.”  Here is his statement:

“TJMS, My sincerest apologies for the confusion over my appearance on your show last Friday morning. I am a long time supporter and admirer of The Tom Joyner Morning Show and I was looking forward to an opportunity to speak with you and your audience.  Unfortunately, the early morning (approximately 5:45AM Pacific Time) following a late-night event had me at what some describe, less than my best.

To clarify a few of my statements:

1. I rarely use the “n” word and I could not have picked a worse time to do so. I deeply apologize for directing it towards you.

2. Regarding my statements about women being insecure, I am a strong believer and supporter of women and I am always amazed by all that our better halves accomplish. I come from a family of strong black women and I would never discredit or minimize their success. I have the deepest respect for women, their strength and innate beauty. To suggest anything else was never my intent. I simply wanted to emphasize that women have no reason to feel that way and my song, “Gave Ya”, is meant to convey just that.

3. Lastly, just to clarify, I was not high, drunk or otherwise under the influence. I was simply exhausted. After a long day, the early call threw off my schedule.

This was no excuse – you and those who support me deserved better.  Please accept my deepest apologies for any misunderstandings for that morning call. It would be an honor to appear on the TJMS in the future to set things right with your audience.”

    What he did does not have anything to do with the hit television drama “Scandal”

    The man apologized. Can we move on?! I doubt it. Cant please all the ppl all the time. Plus, we have writers, blogers, analyst who stay in biz by doing just that. Now we will hve ppl giving us their interpetation of what he just said and what it really means. Honestly, I just get so tired of it all.
