D.L Hughley had a touching moment with his son, Kyle Hughley, on a recent episode of his TV One late night talk show.
Last week, comedian George Lopez was a guest on the show and George discussed Kyle with is longtime friend DL.
During the conversation, Kyle revealed that for a very long time, he thought his father hated him. Kyle claims he felt this way because DL would constantly make jokes about his autism.
Kylie suffers from a mild form of autism called Aspergers Syndrome.
“It is challenging—one of the toughest things about it is not being able to tell when people are joking or when people are being sarcastic.
There was a time I actually thought – I don’t think I’ve ever told you this – but, there was a time when I thought my father hated me.
No, seriously. Because of like all the jokes he would say about my condition.
There was a time when I was like, ‘Damn, does he hate me?’”
DL stepped out of character for a second, and responded to his son:
“Let me say this to you: If anything…I was ashamed of having given you something.
I was ashamed that when we went to get you tested at UCLA – I was ashamed that they said it came from the – I was ashamed of what I thought I had placed in you.
Never one moment have I ever not been proud of you or loved you.
You are the best thing I’ve ever done.”
