Radio Hosts Suspended Following Homophobic Birthday Invite Hoax
Following the reveal that the homophobic response to a children's birthday party invitation was, in fact, a hoax, K-98.3 radio station in Long Island, New York has suspended the radio show hosts that perpetrated the hoax.
The WKJY Morning Show team of Steve and Leeana have been suspended after the station was alerted that the entire story had been made up.
The radio station, K-98.3, issued a statement that said, “it was brought to K-98.3 management’s attention that all the details of the story were completely fabricated independently by Steve and Leeana. This was done without the knowledge of K-98.3 management or ownership. The story, presented as a real event, was, in fact, fictitious. An internal investigation was quickly launched which has resulted in the immediate suspension of Steve Harper and Leeana Karlson from the K-98.3 Morning Show.”
What do you think of the punishment, Instincters? How long should Steve and Leeana be off the air??
