DL Hughley is finally being made to eat crow for his black woman hating ways.

DL Hughley Apologizes For Calling Columbus Short’s Wife A Thirsty Ho On Radio

Last week Hughley came under fire for comments he made on his radio show regarding Columbus Short’s ugly estrangement from wife Tanee McCall-Short.

Here’s a rundown of what was said, via xoJane:

“I think that broad shouldn’t be telling all his business if she gone take him to court,” said Hughley.

He dismisses the concerns of his female co-host, Jasmine Sanders, to converse with male co-host Steve Wilson because he has “nuts.” As Wilson intermittently laughs in the background, Hughley stops just short of calling McCall-Short a liar whose friends posed as witnesses to her abuse. “I don’t think you believe half the isht you saying right now, Jasmine,” said Hughley as Wilson laughed. “This b***h was thirsty. The b****h was thirsty. What, she gone go back to dancing? She gone f**k her money up?”

“I think that broad shouldn’t be telling all his business if she gone take him to court,” said Hughley.

“When you’re very young, you’re very volatile,” Hughley said. “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.” Sanders chimed in and said, “I don’t think that’s always the case.” Hughley’s response? “Well, you’re dumb.”

Whoa… Not that we thought anybody should ever pay DL much attention, but no wonder he’s apologizing now!!!

In a statement posted on his website DL Hughley asked forgiveness for his comments:

Last week during an after-show segment of my radio show, “The DL Hughley Show,” I unintentionally offended some people.

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.

Today, as always, the phone lines to The DL Hughley Show will be open. We’ll address this topic with the DL Question of the Day and will discuss it throughout the show today from 3pm – 7pm ET.

Do you think the apology is enough? Would you accept it?

Hit the flip to see what he had to say for himself on the air today.

Here’s part of the transcript from today’s show via DL’s website:

DL: So Jasmine, you know the story a couple of weeks ago I was broadcasting in Charlotte…

Jasmine: Right.

DL: Columbus Short’s wife came up and she is alleging that he had hit her with a wine bottle and assaulted her with a knife. I quickly jumped to Columbus Short’s defense, and I put my mouth, my, my, if this were a joke, or if I had a done a joke that people got offended by I can honestly say I wouldn’t be apologizing. I don’t think humor, as subjective, as sometime as cutting that it can be, I think that’s something, that’s where I draw a line, I won’t apologize for that.

What I will apologize for is putting my mouth on a woman who was victimized by a man who I know, and before I knew the facts, or before I knew the severity or before I knew much of anything about it. And so Tanee McCall-Short, I put, I basically said that she was probably a gold digger and I had no idea of the severity of what was going on. I quickly … my, my, my sole apology is that I put my mouth on a woman, who was in fact being victimized, and that it came off as me silencing victims. Which, you know, that you were brutalized once and then I do it again. And so I am not in the habit of apologizing for things I don’t mean. I’m not in the habit of saying things that I don’t mean. That was a comment I made, and putting my mouth on that woman was something I sincerely apologize for.

So I don’t condone violence. I’ve been married to a woman for 30 years I can honestly say I’ve never physically abused anyone, well, men, but they deserved it. And I’ve never encouraged a woman to be silent deliberately about abuse. So if it came off that way I have to apologize. I don’t know that you can encourage many women to be silent about much, but I want them to be silent in general, but just not about abuse.

Steve: Here we go.

Jasmine: Yeah.

DL: I want them to have, I certainly want them to have a voice when somebody victimizes them. And as I said several times on that show I think that anybody who victimizes anybody should be prosecuted to the fullest of the law.

Steve: You did say that.

D.L.: I said it several times. And I think that a lot of times, you know, you’re in a position where your words carry a lot more weight than you give them credit for. So if somebody was offended by what I did, and certainly to this young lady, Tanee, I didn’t know that I was defending a dude who then later tore the door off the hinges.

Jasmine: Yeah, he was a little koo-koo.

D.L.: So I pride myself on being a man, and you can’t be a man just when you’re doing something you like. You have to be a man when you’re doing something that has been, when you’ve wronged somebody, and for that I give my apology. The phone lines will be open, we will discuss this, you can talk to me about anything. So give us a call let us know what you think, 877 242 2426

SMH… The hell kinda apology is this? This ninja right here… Hell naw. Do you think he was wrong to make the joke about encouraging women to be silent amid what was supposed to be a sincere apology?
