A lawsuit will be Don Imus’s rejoinder to CBS Radio, which fired the controversial U.S. radio host after his recent racist and sexist comments about a university-level women’s basketball team.
Imus has hired lawyer Martin Garbus, a First Amendment specialist, to help him sue his former employer.
Garbus said on Thursday that he expects to file a breach of contract suit on behalf of Imus by next week.
According to Garbus, part of the host’s CBS contract acknowledged his services to be “irreverent” and “controversial.”
Rapper has dismissed comparisons between sexist hip-hop lyrics and the recent racist remarks made by radio DJ Don Imus.
Imus was suspended by CBS Radio and MSNBC on Monday after he referred to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as ‘nappy-headed hos’–a racially charged sexist term.
Snoop frequently refers to women as “b**ches” and “hos” in his music, but he insists Imus’ use of the term was unacceptable and the 66-year-old DJ should be taken off the air.
The Doggystyle star says, “It’s a completely different scenario.”
