MARTZ Urban WAMO-W261AX (WAMO 100)/PITTSBURGH afternooner MIKE JAX has been suspended after he posted some controversial comments on INSTAGRAM about FREDDIE GRAY, whose death in police custody has sparked protests in BALTIMORE.
WPXI-TV reports, "JAX posted a photo of GRAY on his INSTAGRAM, with a list 22 charges GRAY faced prior to his death. In the caption, JAX wrote, '(GRAY) was pretty busy before he was unjustly killed at the hands of BALTIMORE PD. #prayforbaltimore'.”
Since then, JAX has apologized, writing on INSTAGRAM, "I'd like to apologize for my previous post. My intention was not to justify FREDDIE GRAY's death."
