L.A. Radio Hosts Suspended for Offensive Whitney Houston Comments
Los Angeles radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou of the ‘John and Ken Show’ on KFI 640 AM were suspended for a week after they made some slick comments about the late Whitney Houston while on the air.
We don’t have any idea what prompted these guys to spew idiotic comments about Nippy, but one of the jocks said, “At some point you’re just sick of it all, and so is everybody else in the industry. All her friends and hangers-on, everybody who knew had to deal with her. It’s like, ‘Ah Jesus … here comes the crack ho again, what’s she gonna do? Ah, look at that, she’s doin’ handstands next to the pool. Very good, crack ho.” WTF?
Executives at the radio station quickly suspended the two hosts and called their comments “insensitive” and “inappropriate.” In a statement, Kobylt apologized for his and his co-host’s disrespectful comments. “We made a mistake, and we accept the station’s decision,” he stated. “We used language that was inappropriate, and we sincerely apologize to our listeners and to the family of Ms. Houston.”
Kobylt and Chiampou will return on the air on Feb. 27.
