You people are disgusting. You are making fun of a person who has CANCER. Regardless of what you think of him personally, making fun of something as serious as CANCER is cruel. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Good! Sorry, but Don Imusis a racist redneck piece of crap. The human population could use one less a-hole. What goes around comes around.

Stay strong Don..........................think positive!




TMZ, please stay on top of the comments and delete those that are racist. Imus apologized and was fired for the comments he made. He PAID his dues!

This is really sad news. I've always enjoyed listening to Imus in the Morning and did miss his MSNBC live cast. He never pulled punches and disparaged everyone, even himself, without regards to race or color. It is enjoyable to listen to someone that doesn't have to tap-dance around "political correctness". People here should just lighten up and wish the man well. I do hope he battles this with success.

I will put him on my prayer list. He has helped so many children with cancer.

Don Imus and Howard Stern have been bitter enemies and/or rivals for years. It'll be interesting what (if anything) Howard says about this latest development...

I'm rooting for the I-Man. His show is still great, too bad Time Warner doesn' carry it so I have listen online at imusonair.com to repeats.

You know, I am not an Imus fan after what he said two years ago. Still, cancer is nothing to joke about and while I have said some mean things about the man, I won't joke about this one. Hope he gets better.
