Post “Nappygate” fallout continues: The Don Imus effect setled over two jocks yesterday after an Asian joke left CBS radio executives with another big hole in their schedule.
CBS has confirmed to the media “The Dog House with JV and Elvis” show was sacked permanently after a sophomoric on-air call three weeks ago ordered “slimp flied lice” from a Chinese restaurant.
Suspension followed for the show’s on-air hosts, Jeff Vandergrift and Dan Lay.
” ‘The Dog House with JV and Elvis’ will no longer be broadcast,” said CBS Radio spokeswoman Karen Mateo.
“In the wake of the Imus case, it would have been maddening to the community if these idiots did not get fired,” said Queens City Councilman John Liu.
Comedian Donnell (Ashy) Rawlings also lost his job on New York’s Power 105.1 FM station last week after he was suspended for making an anti-Semitic remark – reportedly saying “a cheap black guy” should be better known as “a Jewish black guy.”
XM’s Opie and Anthony are also in hot water for their phoner with a foul homeless guy who expressed inappropriate feelings against Condoleezza Rice and some other women. The newest outrage was led yet again by Al Sharpton, who said yesterday he wants to meet Hughes and Cumia’s bosses about the rape comments.
“My personal feeling is they should have already been fired,” he said.
But Opie and Anthony supporters gathered in Union Square yesterday to support radio personalities under fire.
“It’s not about whether you like what you heard or not,” said Debbie Wolf, president of People Against Censorship. “I find censorship to be far more offensive than anything that was said.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
