Comedian D.L. Hughley, who has drawn protests for his own controversial comments on the Rutgers University women’s basketball team, supports Don Imus. According to Page Six:

”AS Don Imus gets ready to go back to work, the famed radio host has the support of D.L. Hughley, who recently told AVClub.com, ‘I watched Don Imus … support Harold Ford and Barack Obama. I also watched him take politicians to task for their treatment of Katrina victims. I have a bit of context. And it would be hypocritical for me to deny somebody else the right to express themselves the way they see fit.”’

Hughley is the host of HBO’s popular ”Def Comedy Jam,” which is not entirely unfamiliar with controversy or, for that matter, intense media examination.
