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.
