Longtime radio host Don Imus died at the age of 79 after being hospitalized on Christmas Eve in Texas.

The radio personality was known for his show Imus In The Morning, which aired until last year. Imus was also the author of the book God’s Other Son, which was a best seller in 1994.

The radio star was known for racist remarks he made on his show. In 2007, news organizations like MSNBC and CBS removed his show from their stations after he called the women on Rutgers University women’s basketball team “jigaboos” and “nappy-headed hos.”

The conversation on Twitter is largely divided over the news of Imus’ death.
