Radio hosts pulled off the air in suspension over Whitney Houston 'crack ho' remarks

Since crack cocaine was a major element in the cocktail of junk that killed her, the description seems reasonable to me. Killing yourself with illegal drugs is not exactly respectworthy
"A couple of popular Los Angeles radio shock jocks have been yanked from the airwaves over comments they made about Whitney Houston.

KFI AM 640 suspended John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, the hosts of the 'John and Ken Show,' for 'making insensitive and inappropriate comments about the late Whitney Houston,' it said in a statement. 'Management does not condone, support or tolerate statements of this kind,' the station added.

Among their inflammatory statements yesterday, the hosts called the late singer a 'crack ho' and said she was 'cracked out for 20 years.' Kobylt added: ‘Can you imagine, you're Clive Davis, and she has not been - she has not had her head screwed on right for 20 years?’

Kobylt said in statement that he and Chiampou 'used language that was inappropriate' and they 'sincerely apologize' to their listeners and to Houston's family. 'We made a mistake, and we accept the station's decision,' said Kobylt.
