Imus Pulls an Imus -- Round Two

6/23/2008 8:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Open mouth, insert foot ... again.
Don Imus
Don Imus did it again this morning, wondering aloud about the race of NFL star Adam "Pacman" Jones after hearing of all the various run-ins with the law Jones has had. "What color is he?" Imus asked his co-host. After being told he was African-American, he shot back, "Well, there you go." Do some people never learn?

Like clockwork, Al Sharpton came back with a statement.

"It has been reported to me that statements were made by Mr. Imus this morning and National Action Network has monitored his show since his return. I find the inference of his remark disturbing because it plays into stereotypes. Any use of stereotypes is always counterproductive. We will determine in the next day or so whether or not his remark warrants direct action on our part as we did in April of last year."

Imus was fired last year after he referred to the Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos." WABC, the station that broadcasts the show, said Imus will explain his comments on Tuesday's show. Good luck with that.

Mr Sharpton needs to realize that in America we have FREEDOM OF SPEECH. He is entitled to his opinion. If you don't like him, don't listen. There are more important issues out there.

I heard this live this morning and he was defending the guy - the PC Police need to stop taking people's comments out of context and let the First Amendment work. The man is at his Ranch w/ kids with cancer and I hope he doesn't have to know what a bunch of idiots Americans are to believe everything they read!

This man has done huge damage to himself and other innocent people. Keep him off the air. He adds nothing important to the discourse on life today in America.

Hey, USCUSC...are you getting your statistics from the actual NEWS or just TMZ? I think there are plenty of white people - celebrities AND commoners - who've been arrested recently for driving under the influence.

Go I-Man. I'm also an Imus fan and used to get up at 3 a.m. Pacific Time to watch him. Sharpton- find something worthwhile to do with your life. Off the subject maybe - but I switch channels whenever Al Roker comes on.
