John and Ken Suspended from KFI for Calling Whitney Houston a “Crack Ho”

Controversial radio talk show host John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou have been suspended by KFI Radio for calling the late Whitney Houston a “Crack Ho.”  The duo will return from suspension on February 27.  The reason for the suspension is:  “making insensitive and inappropriate comments about the late Whitney Houston.”

Here’s the statement from KFI Radio:

“Effective immediately, KFI AM 640 hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou have been suspended for making insensitive and inappropriate comments about the late Whitney Houston. KFI AM 640 management does not condone, support or tolerate statements of this kind.”

Kobylt issued a statement of apology to listeners: “We made a mistake and we accept the station’s decision. We used language that was inappropriate and we sincerely apologize to our listeners and to the family of Ms. Houston.”

The pair got in hot water last fall for releasing the cell phone number of California Dream Act activist Jorge-Mario Cabrera and encouraging listeners to call him.

      Rob, you are saying that the late Whitney Houston really WAS a whore? Nice. Any more observations?

    A woman died who was a daughter, a mother, a friend. No matter what the circumstances of her death, it is a time of mourning for her loved ones and loyal fans. Not only was this an “inappropriate comment”, their so called discipline was nothing more than a slap on the wrist. Shame on KFI management.

    I thought they were basically allowed to say whatever they want… they have been all about hate speech for a long time now

    Not only am I glad they’re suspended, I’m glad it’s for this. Let’s see their legion of drooling followers make them out to be bold heroes and martyrs for calling a beloved, recently deceased entertainer a whore.

      She was a crack ho. Also she had not been an entertainer for years. Her voice was damaged from smoking crack for 20yrs. John and Ken just said out load what eveyone else was thinking. CRACK HO

        crack ho: a person who does crack and accepts money in return for sex (also see whore for further explanation of the world’s oldest profession)

        So when did Whitney Houston ever have sex for money? I must have missed that TMZ article…

        Classy comment, Janice. Ignorant, racist, insensitive, moronic, but classy, See people, that is what happens when you take backwoods trailer trash, deprive them of an education, and raise them in an incestuous Ku Klux Klan famly compound without access to antibiotics. Whne the spirochetes inevitably work their way into the brain and eat away at enough of the cerebral cortex, out comes Janice’s erudite, christian post. Just saying what everyone is thinking, Janice.

          No: Janice is part of the Westboro Baptist Church, sponsors of the John and Ken show.

    I am often shocked at the pure hatred coming from these two. They must think they are perfect beings. But they regularly trash, teachers, police, and so Whitney they thought is easy pickings. But guess what, despite her problems, she is mom, was an incredible singer, and she never preached hate like John and Ken. Let’s raise our standards.

    Dr. Laura with the N-N-N-N words and John and Ken all cut from the same cloth. Stoped listening to KFI long time ago. That’s the house that Rush built.

    Hate and more hate that all they have to offer. John and Ken’s heads on a stick please

    John is a moron who says some very stupid things, and should not have called her what he did. I listen to the show on my way home from work because it’s informative when John is not shooting his mouth off without engaging his brain. The John bashing aside, she was using drugs, crack was one of them according to reports, and so she was supporting horrible crimes that are caused by the drug trafficers and dealers through her purchases of those drugs. A great voice, no doubt, but a drain on society like any other drug user. Her kids are the real victims in all of this. A crack ho, no, but a very selfish person to do what she did to her kids.
