It’s been less than a week since superstar singer Whitney Houston suddenly passed away, but ever since news of her death spread many have been wondering if drugs were the cause. The singer publicly struggled with substance abuse, so it was only natural for many to wonder. However, some people are taking things just a bit too far.
John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, two L.A.-based shock jocks have been suspended by their station, KFI, for calling the singer a “crack hoe” just moments after news of her death was announced.
Kobylt and Chiampou told their audience:
“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 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.’ After a while, everybody’s exhausted. And then you find out she’s dead. It’s like, ‘Really? Took this long?’ ”
The pair have since apologized for their comments and the station has suspended the duo for 10 days.
But is that enough?
What do you think? Is suspension enough? Should the pair be fired?
