June 3, 2009 at 2:55 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM Active Rock KRXQ/SCARAMENTO, CA morning team ROB, ARNIE & DAWN IN THE MORNING is under fire for some inflammatory comments made about transgender children. THE HUFFINGTON POST has reported the ROB and ARNIE "took turns referring to gender dysphoric children as 'idiots' and 'freaks'," who were just out 'for attention' and had 'a mental disorder that just needs to somehow be gotten out of them.'"
However, members of the show have defended themselves saying that is was all just a joke. Station Manger JIM FOX told local television news staff from KCRA CHANNEL 3 that "The show is filled with hyperbole and they use exaggerations to make a point."
