Atlanta radio station has fired three a$$holes that host some kind of sports radio program in the A.M. These three Einsteins thought it would be humorous to pretend one of them was former New Orleans Saints Steve Gleason. Yeah, they went that low.
For those of you who don't know who Steve Gleason is, watch this:
Steve is in the later stages of ALS. He types using a program that tracks movements of his eyes, and his 4,500-word column took him four hours to compose. Around the same time the column was published, an Atlanta sports talk radio show did an entire segment, based on the premise that his computerized "voice" is hilarious. It was really, really bad.
The three douche bags have been "fired" this evening.
statement: all three hosts have been fired.
"We deeply regret the offensive programming that aired this morning on “Mayhem In The AM” on 790 The Zone, related to former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason and his battle with ALS. We suspended the three individuals involved immediately following their comments and have since terminated their employment. 790 The Zone, our owners, sponsors and partners in no way endorse or support this kind of content. We sincerely apologize to Mr. Gleason, his family and all those touched by ALS."
Let's keep an eye out to see if they're reinstated. These are people who have no souls.
