Ads Drop Imus for 'Nappy-Headed Hos' Crack

After calling lady members of the Rutgers basketball team "nappy-headed hos" and "jigaboos" last week, advertisers dropped "Imus in the Morning" like the man was in flames. The list of the departed is long and includes P&G, AmEx, GM and Staples.

The displeased knights of valor at MSNBC dropped its simulcast of the CBS Radio show shortly thereafter, attributing the decision to maintaining integrity and not to the Arctic chill generated by pissed-off household brands.

What to expect from a guy who looks (and sometimes sounds!) like a Civil War relic? Sirius, you've just won yourself a new high-profile deejay.

Stern would beg to differ about the "Sirius" comment.
