DL Hughley in West Hollywood

Defiant comedian D.L. Hughley has come under heat fire over his insensitive and race-baiting tweet about Hollywood screen legend Debbie Reynolds.

Reynolds died on Wednesday at age 84 — a day after losing her daughter, Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher, who died of a heart attack on Tuesday.

As tributes poured in from around the world for Fisher and Reynolds, Hughley saw an opportunity to attract attention to himself.

Hughley, who isn’t funny, tweeted: “Debbie Reynolds died a day after her daughter did! Black Mama’s don’t die cuz they kids do! They cry and say God don’t make no mistakes (sic)”.

His deleted tweet did not sit well with many followers, who attacked Hughley for his insensitivity.

“This is a perfect example of inserting race where it is inappropriate to do so,” one critic wrote. “A family lost two people in two days, and THAT’S what you say?”

“As if we needed more proof that you aren’t funny,” a wise person remarked, while another tweeted: “Somehow you have managed to trivialize the death of two beloved phenoms and the pain of black mothers who lost their kids.”


  • nucynu25

    I aint mad ..

  • hotntot95

    SMH…where they do that at?…it’s a time and place for jokes DL…

  • Carrington

    I guess I would expect something different if he wasn’t a comedian and they try to find funny in most situations. A comedian will come back a month later and reenact everything that happened at his OWN mama’s fune… so, as someone with a healthy sense of humor – I ain’t that mad. But I get why people DIDN’T get it.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    We get his show here in the afternoons so I listen to him often on my commute home. He is WOKE as HELL I will say. But this was bad timing this joke and in bad taste.

  • Low E. TUH!

    WELL STATED…MY SENTIMENTS.

  • Low E. TUH!

    TIMING BAD…BUT NOT INSENSITIVE. AND NOT EXACTLY ATTENTION SEEKING IMO…

  • Buttercup

    He tried to make a joke. It fell flat. Move on.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Hughley, who isn’t funny
    ^^^^^^^^
    Folk kill me with this comedian is funny. This one aint. Folks sense of humor is very very much subjective. What is side splitting to ME…might not be to the next. I’ve seen this debate often here in the Garden over the years, normally in re to Katt and Kevin.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    He tells jokes for a living, many times jokes offend. Shurgs, no.big deal.

  • hotntot95

    Yep…I like him…but the timing is bad

  • Buttercup

    I could not stand him during his Comic View era. These past 3-4 years though? I’ve become a huge fan.

  • Low E. TUH!

    “…many times jokes offend”

    HAIL HOW MANY TIMES?

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    That memes though!!!!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    We talked about how black Twitter dragged the damn life out of Ellen Pompeo/Meredith Grey yet for using black emoticons?

  • Low E. TUH!

    HIS KINGS OF COMEDY SET WAS BY FAR THE LEAST FUNNIEST – BUT THE EXTENDED SET THAT THEY CUT WAS HILARIOUS!

  • hotntot95

    He knows it too…that’s why he deleted it…why do people delete? Lol.. own it!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    We can’t say everything we think out loud whether it’s true or not.

  • Annaunki

    “Black Mama’s don’t die cuz they kids do! They cry and say God don’t make no mistakes (sic)”.

    “selective outrage” eh

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    We saw Corey Holculm, his ENTIRE STaND UP is surrounded around is about side chics
    Oh my gawd…i laughed so hard.

    He joked about
    Side babbies dont even get a real bir cer…i hollered for a good 5 mins
    Abortions

    Some left…he said they musta been offended. Guess what he kept telling jokes.

  • MissHarlem

    Eh I’m not mad at his tweet or any comic really. Was it too soon…yea but Eh. I actually like some of his tweets or posts so again Eh. Next

  • SummerBaby

    His publicist or manager probably told him to delete.

  • Buttercup

    I can’t even think of one of his jokes on Kings of Comedy, but I can come up with Bernie’s, Steve’s, and Ceddy’s with no problems. I really appreciate DL now though.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    He has a nationally syndicated afternoon show on radio. cant be pissing off his sponsors messing with his scrilla.

  • hotntot95

    Tact and sensitivity is gone chile…nobody cares until somebody say sumthin about they mama passing

  • nicelyput32

    I agree..it’s a matter of opinion. DL maybe worth the price of admission to some but I’m not going to see him even if it’s free.

  • Angelfrmbklyn

    I completely get his message. Prayers aren’t always the answer. Actions are in order and long overdue

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Rherotical?

  • MissHarlem

    Love this gif. Love Red Foxx.

  • SummerBaby

    He pisses people off when he talks about side babies. ?

  • Tlowe89

    It was definitely an insensitive joke, but many jokes comedians tell are insensitive, yet people still find them funny. I think if he would’ve said this joke 3 years from now people would’ve laughed or at least not taken it so harshly. But at the time families are still grieving, so it’s mostly bad timing for jokes of the sort

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I hated him on there and Kings too. But his newer comedy vids and I have seen him live since that era…I love him. And that show is good in afternoons.

  • hotntot95

    It’s like trying to shove toothpaste back in the tube tho…it’s too late…*shrugs,*

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Oh my gawd Summer. My head hurt when we left. I wanted to run, i could not breath.

  • MissHarlem

    Ugh thank you. Shit annoys me. What I think is cute you won’t. Damn dumb

  • Buttercup

    Yep. I saw him at the comedy club when I was out in the Midwest. He’s grown on me a lot.

  • sunni_daze

    It’s his flat disrespect to women. Any man that can talk that bad about women, is gay and dying to fall out the closet.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    3 years from now?

    I have tears in my eyes, do you understand comedy?

  • hotntot95

    These public figures need to do better…I bet he ready to fight if somebody made a joke about his mama after she died…

  • SummerBaby

    He was on Sway in the morning awhile back & I was on a road trip. I was cracking up the whole time at his azz. Folks were calling in & were pissed ya heard me.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Every comedian is not for everyone. Just like everyone cant wear half tops.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Every single Kevin Hart post and we get quite A FEW here…it comes up. Katt too bc most of his show out sessions of late have been in ATL. Why I pacifically used those two. Its silly

  • SummerBaby

    I tend to find humor in most things even things that have been painful in my own life.

  • Irony

    I love Ellen!

  • SaltineCrackers

    Inappropriate. We used to be better than this.

  • nucynu25

    Almost as bad as the woke vs the unwoke. I always says this but alot of shit is abt perceptions . Thats why eyewitness accts are so faulty sometimes .. 2 ppl could witness the same event & still come back with 2 diff recounts that they genuinely beleive they saw .

  • Carrington

    You was right when you said what you said. Personally, I think that DL is a riot. I love his brand of political comedy. I could sit back and watch he and Bill Maher’s comedic approach to real life issues over Mike Epps, who plenty people find hilarious – while I don’t. What’s funny to me ain’t necessarily for you.

  • Buttercup
  • Irony

    Silver lining!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    +1. they dragged the life outta her tho and then turned the corner and dragged her again. It was ugly

  • nucynu25

    Me too.. i hve been dead ass crying and looked at myself in the mirror and been like eww you ugly .. cry cutier bish

  • cherrypie

    I saw him at our local improv this past summer and thought he was hilarious. His comedy is not for everyone which was evident as alot of people were not laughing and some stood up and left. I’m not a side bytch and have no side babies so it didnt affect me at all.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Same here! Example, in movie we saw…i laughed so hard about when he fought death. That was hirlious to me and a few others. Why…because i know whats its like to step right to the light. I think thats why I laugh so much.

  • Carrington

    I was my grandma’s favorite. We spoke on the phone for a couple hours at a time about 4 days per week. When she died, my cousin and I were in the pews talking about the church hats and shameful ensembles and DYING laughing. She kept saying, “get away from me… we’re supposed to be sad up in here.” and I said, “Please, if granny was in here, she would’ve already passed me a note talking about Bay-su’s hat!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    If it was a black celebrity whose mother passed and a white comedian made a joke then hell ?????? and it’s gates pits , ?????, fires and everything else would be out!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    They dragging her because she used block

  • Incog-knee-gress

    He not supposed to stop his routine. He did right. You offended then geaux >>>>>>

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Smh

  • Torae

    Everyone is sensitive these days. This guy tells jokes. Went to one of his shows and he was going in on funny looking audience members. It dont matter what he says everyone on the internet gets upset, mad, outraged ?…then forget about it the following week…

  • Irony

    I’m not on Twitter, but Ellen has BLACK babies, a black husband, she has stood up for black lives matter, she has a black employer. To me she’s ALL things black in a snow capsule. I don’t believe she appropriate culture, she’s really down for the cause. But this is my opinion.

  • Buttercup

    Have you been hanging around in my bathroom? LMBO

  • nucynu25

    lmao

  • LibraGirlonly

    I didn’t see anything wrong with it. Dang Sandra go hard for your own people sometimes.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Upvotes you 200 times, and wondering if you yew my cousin. But you cant be cause I was my granny favorite.?

  • Traci404

    The words often used in this case are….”too soon? ”

    Yep, the joke would have been funny next year…but not the next day

  • LibraGirlonly

    Yesssssss

    http://www.hollywood.com/general/ellen-pompeo-responds-to-backlash-over-black-emoji-use-60669453/
    And here is the kicker…the topic she used the emoticons ON? Was in FAVOR of a documentary on the KKK being changed. A cause SHE alone had championed for. Im not on Twitter either and with the holiday… I just caught wind of this mess Monday and again today when they were speaking on it TJMS.

  • Irony

    Picture this 2006 sitting at the front of the church, at my grandfather’s funeral (a pallbearer) I made all my cousins laugh talking about how granddad would stutter. The whole front row was laughing at a funeral.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Ppl too serious. It had no bad reference on Debbie whatsoever

  • Sucker Free

    Abortion and miscarriage jokes are not for everyone

  • TeeTee

    my current bff lost her grandfather last night. Sucks because I knew that he was getting ready to go after she went and say him. I think she did to tho. I am praying for that family

  • LibraGirlonly

    Can’t stand his guy arse

  • Oliver Brady

    DL is anti alt-right supremacy, Trump, so he’s alright with me. I wrote an entire dissertation on his tweet and the multiple interpretations of this tweet. However places like breitbarf and sr aren’t the place for all of that. No need to argue down supremacists.

  • WackaBlocka

    when Amy schumer did the mock beyonce video and Wanda sykes dissed trump america went bonkers … Robin Williams Redd Foxx Richard Pryor Eddie Murphy heck even Dave Chapelle and countless other comedians in rare form … when they cracked jokes they offended EVERYBODY and america laughed and kept it pushin … now everybody has PMS and wants an apology … yes timing as a comedian is imperative to the reception of the joke also tweeting instead of being in a comedy club which I think did not help Wanda Sykes smh, but the platform also matters so yes he’s a comedian that should also understand that america is in a sensitive place socially … everybody is wrong here he made a bad joke at the wrong time but it doesn’t make him the devil …america also has a mob mentality … so many levels too little time … i think as whole “america ” is having a nervous break down … we think its a joke but I think the revolution has already begun

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Okay. I agree with parts of this here too.

  • nucynu25

    america also has a mob mentality … so many levels too little time … i think as whole “america ” is having a nervous break down … we think its a joke but I think the revolution has already begun..i liked this pt

  • nucynu25

    everybody is wrong here..Ole righteous one how can you dictate opinions ?

  • Torae

    Yea i dont think its that serious for outrage…but thats just me…

  • LibraGirlonly

    Me either

  • Butter

    Its Comedy ! Geesh! I get the reason people upset, but People do stand up on dead celebrities all the time. They go in on Michael Jackson, and no one says anything. Fcuk them, did they show up and offer condolences for the Slain blacks who died at the hand of the Police?

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Sounds like me and my 1st cousin at my own grandma’s funeral. Listening to my aunts with speech impediments trying to out ugly cry each other AND talk at the same time almost made me forget where I was. I had real tears laughing and my uncle on the other side of trying to console cause he thought we was tore up.

    But I tend to find humor at the most inappropriate times anyway, so there’s that.

  • SayWhatNow?

    I didnt read it yet, but he needs a mustache asap!

  • nucynu25

    LMAO

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He’s saying black mothers don’t love their kids as hard or as deeply. He’s saying black mom’s shed a tear and goes on, as they will not fall out die after their kid dies. He’s not poking fun or even making an joke. It was one of those left for you to interpret or read between the lines.

    It’s not a tweet I’d send now or ever. Debbie Reynolds was so funny in every tv show I’ve seen her appear on. I hate hearing people leave this way – broken heart. Life is hard, but death can be harder.

  • n1kk1a

    He’s never been funny to me. Ever.

  • T Kenny

    i wish he stop wearing those big as scarfs around his neck. is he hiding something??

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Black Twitter be all the way OUTTA line. I was like DAMN. She was giving A & E the complete and utter bidness over that documentary and used some black emotis and yall do her like that?

  • hotntot95

    Thankyou.! !!Kids and mama’s are off limits in black families…?

  • nucynu25

    Sorry but where the hell would you get that first pt from . DL is woke as hell he aint trying to say that shit .. what he really saying is blk mommas are strong … bury their babies, cry & pray … even if those prayers may not be answered they continue on . CMON

  • Zizzle

    Sorry, but I don’t detect any race-baiting. It’s usually the racists who see race in everything – it consumes their lives – so I see this as just another case of them pointing their fingers at something that doesn’t exist.

  • Yoni

    I laugh at funerals. I tend to laugh at the most inappropriate times. Not a nervousness either. Just I have a dark humor about me. But what HE said, was not funny and didn’t need to leave his fingers.

  • Sucker Free

    Its fashion…self expression hun

  • nucynu25

    bloop

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Nope, you should laugh. I was the same way when my typically drunk great uncle got up and spoke at my maternal grandmother’s funeral. I just remember my sister looking back at me repeatedly, laughing. One of my uncles, seated next to her, put his head down and started laughing at my commenting of drunk uncle’s speech.

    During the repast, everyone kept bringing up drunk uncle and wishing he’d sit down ‘in our heads.’ So it was comic relief for all.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Chase, pushes you iff bottom stoop. ?

  • LibraGirlonly

    He is saying no such thing. He is trying to say the strength copper, chocolate, honey colored, etc. woman have is insurmountable.

  • Yoni

    Why I kinda like his “outfit” tho’? LOL

    I laugh all the time in inappropriate situations. Fck it.

    I guess we can add funny or unfunny comedians to the list of things that get the people going.

    NAH, this is mild .

    It has been, but I’m seeing new font jumping in here.

    He’s saying black mothers don’t love their kids as hard or as deeply. He’s saying black mom’s shed a tear and life goes on, as they will not fall out die after their kid dies. He’s not poking fun or even making an joke. It was one of those left for you to interpret or read between the lines.
    ———–
    How did you interpret that 1st part????? I think you read some other lines that weren’t there cause I didn’t get that

  • Sucker Free

    I think he told a miscarriage joke when I saw him…it didn’t bother me tho

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    He used to get on my nerves when he would laugh at his own jokes on stage back in the day.

  • SayWhatNow?

    The man that sung at my uncles funeral could not sing a lick! Once all of my cousins made eye contact we laughed so hard and loud. It was awful and I know my uncle was cursing him out about it.

  • Sucker Free

    I think scarves are fly as fukk

  • Jen_no_juice

    Though it’s was too soon for his “joke”, that’s what he does. Comic relief

  • LibraGirlonly

    I think he is funny. To each is own.

  • nucynu25

    Nobody did .

  • Listen2Me

    +1. But I think that a scarf makes anything cute.

  • felinelurker

    I follow him on IG & made the same comment. Too soon

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I don’t think it’s race baiting either. I honestly don’t think he meant any harm, just wanted to make light of the situation.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    New post. Fake couple

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    That’s how I used to get the lil lurks to shut up all that damn crying. Taking them straight to the bathroom and stand them on the counter and say, “Now look at youself”

    Maybe 10 seconds later, crying ceased.

  • Tlowe89

    What. I hope your not being rude by asking me do I understand comedy, because I love all things comedy. I also understand grief. Anyone here can imagine it would be rough to lose two family members a just day apart is tragic, and then imagine someone making jokes about it, probably less that 24 hrs after the 2nd death. I know 3 years sound like a long time, but who knows when it’s a good time to make jokes about the situation. Yes 3 yrs is a stretch and people will forget who Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher are. But 24 hrs is way too soon.

  • mark

    I never thought he was funny. Or cat Williams

  • Keesh5000

    I see what your trying to say. Its almost like Black people are expected to see death or Mothers and Fathers( from prisin) are expected to see their child die at a faster pace than White people. Its like we should expect or accept death at any time and move on. Maybe it didn’t go so well considering Hughley might have a bigger White fan base than say….Lil Duval, if he would have tweeted that. This would not be a topic on the blog

  • MissHarlem

    This fake outrage is what’s hilarious. Gtf on with your sensitive shit. When it’s time to be outraged y’all get quiet like a church mouse. Miserable ass

  • Scorpio

    He has never been funny, and his jokes have always been race tilted, but not in an intelligent way. Back when CNN hired him for his show I couldn’t understand why, but then it was canceled shortly after, guess they thought what were we thinking?

    Now thats terrible….??

    DL Hughley has always been a mean spirited “comedian.” Never did like him. He’s not funny so he immediately just starts being cold or rude..no real effort put into his comedy.

  • sunni_daze

    Me either. And he won’t get a dime of my money and some cool shows have come up but he was on the bill. Had to pass.

    What’s also funny is how people are mad.

    a lot of black comedians do it, even your fave…

  • Tlowe89

    To tread lightly, I never asked you who you buried nor did I write my post to offend you if that’s what happened. I simply stated my opinion and that was all. I wasn’t telling anyone in this forum what I believe is what you all should and need to believe. It’s my opinion and I’m not here for any slick remarks. I don’t understand what’s going on in these comment sections on this site the past 24 hrs, but some of you all are being pretty nasty toward one another. Someone bluntly called someone stupid for because they mentioned a fact about a politician who said one thing and later said another. Just pure disrespect going on for no reason at all.

    And you Take Care as well Miss.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Or you will get hands ?? Upside your jaw!!!!

  • Jen_no_juice

    He’s a COMEDIAN! Do you not know they are here to entertain, make folks smile even when they’re hurting, bring happiness where there sadness, make fukking jokes,etc. I stated his joke was too soon dayum don’t come for me and you don’t know job descriptions. *gives you a rolling chair* be gone

  • HIS4EVA

    agreed

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    It aint new. Nope

  • Breez’n Thru

    I think people are tripping off of the person who made the joke more than anything. I don’t see what the problem is. When my grandma died me, my brother, and my uncle cracked jokes during the funeral but my pops was pissed. Man she was 94 years old. She won’t off limits. We find humor in damn near everything. Life is short. Laugh often…

    ur opinion, dear. To me, he was funny as hell on Kings of Comedy and when he hosted the Shaq All star Comedy Jam. He makes a lot of political jokes so you’re kinda forced to keep up with what he’s saying or you will indeed get bored…but this, was just very insensitive to that grieving family!

  • Sucker Free

    That interpretation was as crazy as that thing on Snoop’s head ?

  • Carolina Blue

    I have no idea who they are.

  • NovemberFling

    LOL. I think someone snatched the mic outta her hand.

  • ThisHarryHere

    He’s a comedian, its all about timing. This was the exact right time to pos that tweet. I’m upset he took it down. Also, i doubt the dead care about respect seeing as how they’re dead. As stated before, https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1e46f6709450fa08ea95b58f3eaf4ec2e342dee921eb41db3803c19db0241ab1.gif

    I looooove me some Corey! That man always has me in tears laughin!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    WTH was that tweet supposed to even mean?

    DL needs to go to rehab pronto.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Some of you kill me you will come and stand up for folks that wouldn’t care if you lived or died and think you are nothing but you will cry and hoop and holler for massa but will throw your own away so fast it will make your head spin. I don’t care if he funny or not he cares about his people so I”m on his side. Stay on code melanated people stay on code cause the sprites will always stay on code and stick behind each other no matter what they do. Some of us need to learn the same language

  • LibraGirlonly

    Debbie is ok she lived a good life so what’s the problem??

  • Jamie Jay

    I’m sorry but the grieving process is real and her daughter lost her mom and grandma in the same week. Us black folk grieve and for him to say that was tacky. Never found him funny and he messing with the wrong one, those star wars fanatics will end his career over his lame opinion.

  • Annaunki

    hunny they are everywhere….lol from what i seen

  • nick c

    I think your looking to hard into it, DL is just not funny is the point here.

  • LibraGirlonly

    No not really I got it trust me I got it and get it. He’s rude, ain’t funny but so what he said what he said and what’s the point some people thought it was funny.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So you can’t even be objective and call DL out for his ish?

    He has said some relevant things over the years but this was a huge fail.

    Sorry but I can’t get his comment/joke.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah you supported Trump so yeah you would think something like this is funny.

  • LibraGirlonly

    No I can’t see it and fail or not I’m riding with him .

  • WackaBlocka

    traditionally when a comedian cracks a joke he expects people to laugh … so if people are ripping you a new one then maybe it was the wrong time to crack it .. and at the same time we do have freedom of speech so a person has the right to speak his peace and you don’t have to read it or listen to it .. people like to dictate/control others words movements … america is missing respect and compassion right now .. I also don’t dictate opinions but I do have my own … hence the opinion forum we are in right now 😉

  • country57

    D.L. Hughley was the only comedian who was not funny on Kings Of Comedy. I always fast forward his segment. He is NOT funny!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Except the ‘joke’ wasn’t funny.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Except you were family and DL in this case isn’t.

  • Pam

    Truth!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But you were practically family DL in this case isn’t and messages lose context when posted on social media.

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    I lost a son. I’m black and that reasoning did help me through. But his timing is awful, and the tweet was so unnecessary.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Let him vent … Folks are just tired … Js ..

  • Desiree Edwards

    hahahah…still missing the point…

  • Not Down With The BS

    I’m not understanding how people think this tweet was in any way funny.

    Is he mocking Debbie Reynolds being so overcome with grief that she had a stroke and then died?

    Is he saying that when black women’s children die, they are not overcome with the same amount of grief? They just shrug it off as God’s design?

    Or is he saying that black women are stronger than white women when their children die?

    I find every above premise reprehensible. No ‘normal’ woman could just shrug off their child dying. In death, when people are inextricably connected, they are extremely impacted by their loved one’s death. If there is another interpretation, let me know.

    I see that there is a comment below about someone cracking jokes at his grandmother’s funeral. I don’t get that. If it’s to laugh to keep from crying, fine. A person dying in old age is the best possible scenario of death, yet that doesn’t mean it’s not profoundly hurtful. You’ll be cracking jokes when your moms or dads die? No hurt or grief, huh? Wtf is that about? You can in no way be close to the person you are mocking.

    Yes, people grieve differently. However, the structure of the tweet implies that black women don’t ‘feel’ when their own children die. That’s what I see when I interpret the tweet.

    When is death of a family member a laughable matter? Unless you don’t actually love that family member. That sounds more like contempt for that person. There is nothing amusing in this tweet.

  • IAmLegend

    I have never ever ever thought DL Hughley was funny. Never!

    But! He does offer very insightful commentary from time to time. This obviously was not one of those moments.

  • S T

    ???? that’s funny. Smh.

  • S T

    Spike Lee in the picture

    Be real tho, most of his joke aren’t funny

    I thought that was Rusty Westbrook.

    No, you are. You just want to be extra sensitive…
    I mean, i know people wake up to be petty but you woke up just to get your cry on. You just want to be in your feels all day long. Carry on. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5c4a62f2222bc503088da00ac29e26f427c37942b8697889f6abf179a87ccc77.gif

  • Karma WhO

    again, YOUR OPINION! I’ve always found him funny even on his sitcom.. he most of the time speaks truths, and I love how he pokes fun at “Growing up black”.. you have to be able to relate, like Paul Mooney, he’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I think he’s funny as shyt lol…but I will say again, this comment was highly inappropriate while this family is grieving..

  • Li

    D.L. can be embarassing sometimes. This is one of those times.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Thank you

  • Carrington

    And he’s STILL a comedian at the end of the day, so that which doesn’t quantify as comedy in your book… don’t laugh at it. It’s pretty much that simple. Let’s discuss your issue at Bobby’s if I’m still interested…

  • Moon Lee

    Amen !

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You it so well! Love “america is having a nervous breakdown!”

  • http://suzar.com/BOTW/BOTW-ch1d-pages7-8.html Staci Elle

    I’m sorry you re going through that sis.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Bad timing, inappropriate to insert race, especially if you’ve followed Carrie Fisher, she was so transparent, a hilarious truth-teller, her drug stories were of legend! Debbie Reynolds was an American Sweetheart, and legend! DL knew this would get people to talking, I guess it feels good just to get a buzz (negative or not) after decades in show business! Like Demi Lovato calling out Mariah Carey when she doesn’t know her, or J-Lo dating Drake tryna get a buzz for a chart-topping single or Kanye and Kim setting up Taylor Swift, and later the Paris Heist and psych hold, Cee-lo with seeming fake phone blow up, DL knew there would be a backlash, hoped for it!

  • country57

    Yep, my opinion. By the way, I love and adore Paul Mooney. A truly funny comedian.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    condolences.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    OH SWEETIE. He wasn’t patting you on the back, trust me.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Nope, he wasn’t. Black mother’s say it’s God’s will and move on, something along those lines is what he tweeted. Nowhere in that tweet can anyone say he’s lifting up black mothers.

    I think we can all agree the tweet was tacky and tasteless.

  • http://theburningbush.disqus.com/ TheBurningBush

    it’s funny to see all of this fake PC outrage is coming back to bite liberals like DL in the @$$.

  • Honeydew

    For someone who lost a black mother from a broken heart after they she lost her father, I agree with you on everything you’ve said.

    Being honest
    How many black people gonna say
    Lord take me too
    Has nothing to do with lack of love for your loved one

  • i troll it like i see it

    What was he venting? Who did something to him? Sounded to me like he was just being an a$$. Hopefully he doesn’t experience the loss of a child and see what it feels like. He may keel over and die too. Besides the woman was 85 years old, this all may be too much for someone in their 80s to take regardless of race.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I agree where was the punchline? He never really has one, he’s just a jerk. His comedy is lazy and rude pretty much at all times.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yeah okay …

  • Karma WhO

    exactly, everyone has a preference but D.L is definitely a funny guy!

  • lovelygamour

    White people must of written those replies. He wasnt Trivializing her death he was making fun of black women.
    I just went to see if he was married to a black woman. His Wikipedia has already been updated with this Debbie fisher thing, crazy .

  • kennedy220

    im trying to figure out where the “some truth” is?

  • NOTHINGBUTTHETRUTH

    White people say the same thing. He is as stupid as they come. He has never been funny to me. At all. He is rude and he a comedic bully. What if someone janked his gotdamn children?

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Don’t understand why Carrie is being worshipped by black folk or her mother may they RIP, but what has either of them done for POC, or said… We weren’t a part of their thoughts or conversation…. We can be so silly as a community sometimes.

  • bessie

    DL is entitled to his opinion. Sometimes no comment is the best comment.

  • Chellie141508

    Exactly that’s why I looked cross eyed in here recently when someone wrote they didn’t think Kevin Hart was funny at all but same person is gonna post about how they love South Park how funny it is ..really????

  • Blue

    Should have kept that to himself. What he needs to tweet about is that giant red scarf.

  • Liah

    Thats my man…But he should have kept that opinion to himself?

  • Simone

    I had my twisted sense of humor way before Trump ran for president. Happy New Year. You will be blown away by a booming economy and secure country under President Trump. I’m excited for Jan 20, 2017!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No you’re just a twisted human being who supported another twisted human being who has no idea how to handle the presidency.

    BTW the only thing booming are gas prices.

    Gas is up over $0.20/gallon since the Trump Wall Street rally.

    Your boy said he was glad that blacks stayed home which helped him win.

    I guess a black Trump voter like you wouldn’t understand that he insulted you.
    You’re an idiot of the first order.

  • Simone

    Trump has nothing to do with gas prices. The price for a barrel of oil went up after OPEC decreased oil production months ago, so the demand for gas remains high, while the production lowered, which increased gas prices. I have to follow the market for work purposes so I knew the price hike was coming months ago. Mature some and stop calling those with different political views, idiots.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!

    You claim that Trump is going to make everyone wealthy basically that he can control the economy but now you say he doesn’t control gas prices.

    You’re telling to mature but you’re repeating some slogan like a high school cheerleader drooling over the football quarterback.

    Trump is making himself very wealthy at the expense of American taxpayers.

    First he charged taxpayers because he used his personal plane during the campaign.

    Now he wants to keep his residence in Trump Towers so can go there on the weekends.

    Besides charging the American taxpayers for renting out space in Trump Towers for the Secret Service NYPD is spending millions securing Trump Tower whether Trump is there or not, but I am sure you will make excuses for Trump when the economy falls flat and Trump’s itchy Twitter fingers cause some sort of international incident.

    Oh yeah blame Obama….waa waa waa!!

  • Miss Me with Da BS

    He act as if he’s a Cush or sumthin!

  • Miss Me with Da BS

    Simone, you are entitled to vote for the candidate of your choice just as Hillary supporters voted for her lying ass. Liberals are the party of freedom and the right to choose. You and whomever else voted for President Elect Trump have that right.

  • Wanda Morris

    DL is just being DL. He is being Silly. What I don’t understand is Why Black Folks are so interested in this Woman and her Mother to the point that they are Offended by DL Comments. We do not have anything in common with these People. Hell, I thought Her Mother past along time ago until they announce that she just died.

  • Mimi

    I don’t have to black or white to appreciate people. I’m black and grew up loving Carrie. please people stop dividing yourself of the superficial. People divide themselves over the color of their skin, us against them, silly. We are more alike then we are different. I’m speaking as a human being and a scientist. A mother’s grief can’t be measured by how much melanin is expressed by her DNA. D.L’s comments were ignorance at its best.

  • Queen B

    U miss the point too so nvm ?

  • Queen B

    No truth at all….plenty of black mothers have died days or weeks after their kids

  • Queen B

    He’s such an idiot smh and he’s not funny at all

  • Genia W-m

    Most comedians are nothing but people in pain hiding behind jokes. Where’s DL’s family? Haven’t seen them in pictures for years. Time for old head to settle down.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    That was purely foolish!

  • Drea982

    I like his radio show but this was in poor taste. People lost loved ones and are hurting.

  • skilletblonde

    I’d like to know who told D.L. Hughley that he was funny and smart. Because, they lied.
