Los Angeles – April 30, 2014

Radio host and comedian DL Hughley released the following statement in response to controversial remarks he recently made concerning Columbus Short and his spouse Tanee McCall-Short.

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.

Listen to his apology
