Radio host Don Imus called the Rutgers University women's basketball team "nappy headed hos" on his nationally syndicated program.
The National Association of Black Journalists demanded his immediate firing after the man known as "Imus in the Morning" put his foot deep in his mouth Wednesday. Imus questioned the players' looks, describing them as tattooed "rough girls" His producer compared the team which has eight black members to the NBA's Toronto Raptors.
Imus was speaking with producer Bernard McGurk when the ncaa title game between Rutgers and Tennessee came up.
"That's some rough girls from Rutgers, " Imus said."Man, they got tattoos. . ."
"Some hardcore hos, " said McGurk.
"That's some nappy headed hos there, I'm going to tell you that," Imus said.
Imus who is best known for his own nappy head and whoring for any radio audience he can beg, borrow or blow claims to not have understood the outrage over his remarks: "We nappy haired hoes has got to stick together. . . It's hard out there for a nhh, millionaire radio dick!"
