In 2007, Don Imus referred to Rutgers University woman’s basketball team as “nappy headed hos” and “jiggaboos”. That incident made national news and caused Don Imus to be terminated a week later.
Don Imus passed away on Decemeber 27, 2019. Reports are coming in that as Don Imus was on his death bed he reportedly told a close family member, “Tell all of those nappy headed hos that I’m sorry & I’ll miss them and may they go on to have a wonderful life being a jiggaboo.”
