BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Wanda Sykes says when she heard about the comments Don Imus made about the Rutgers women's basketball team, her jaw dropped in shock.
But knowing Sykes, she wasn't just leaving it there. She says the reason she reacted that way is that she “thought Imus died, like, nine years ago.” Sykes says Imus has “one of those faces that belongs in the obituaries.”
Sykes spoke out about the Imus comments during her appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." She says she's been contacted by just about every media outlet seeking her views on the situation.
She says that has caused her to wonder: "since when did I become the spokesperson for nappy-headed hos?"
