Another day, another radio host suspended. This time it's "Mo" from Q92 (WDJQ) in Canton, Ohio. Mo took a phone call from a woman with Down Syndrome. Kellie Baker says she mistakenly called the deejay. But, he jumped on her disability and poked fun at her. WTSP.com reported on a recording of the incident: "His mocking continues with, 'You don't know who Mo is? Ok, so I can laugh at you and you won't know who to call to say you're offended? Ha Ha. Very good.'" (Deejay Mo, Screenshot: Q92radio.com)
Mo has since apologized on the air. The station issued a statement saying in part: "Q92 is participating in...an on-going awareness campaign to focus on the abilities, strengths, and talents of people who are developmentally disabled."
