DL Hughley apologizes for calling Columbus Short’s wife a “Thirsty Hoe”

DL Hughley may be forgiving himself, but it’s hard to tell if women’s groups are going to be so gracious.  Hughley went onto his radio show this week and apologized for a series of remarks that had millions up in arms.

During an unfortunate rant on his show, Hughley referred to Columbus Short’s wife as a “thirsty hoe” for pursuing domestic violence allegations against the actor that led to him being fired from the hit TV show, “Scandal.”  Activists felt that Hughley’s words put women in danger around the world by attaching a stigma to domestic violence victims, many of whom are in real danger from their partners.

Here’s what Hughley said on the air:

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 r@ped 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.”

“I guarantee you, three years from now she’s going to be thinking, ‘Damn, I should have shut the f*ck up … women always running out the mouth when they shouldn’t.’ This b*tch was thirsty. The b*tch was thirsty. What, she gone go back to dancing? She gone f*ck her money up?”

Right after Hughley’s comments, a petition was filed on demanding that he apologize publicly for his remarks.  Hughley was concerned about the backlash and immediately issued this apology:

“In regards to Columbus Short’s legal issues, I jumped to a conclusion and blamed Tanee McCall-Short; and I’m sorry. My intent was not to quiet victims.

When I did speak of the topic on air, I repeatedly emphasized then, and as I do now, that anyone who is convicted of domestic violence, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law; and that is what I believe.”

Is is that easy for someone to get off the hook for saying things they can’t take back?  This isn’t the first time that Hughley has gotten a show and done something that led to him nearly being banned.  Below is a clip of the CNN show he had a few years ago that was so embarrassing that CNN took him off the air immediately.  Both black and white people wanted him gone after this one.

Is DL funny or has he lost his relevance?
