Two New York radio hosts were fired for making transphobic comments during their show, it was announced today (22 May).
Kimberly and Beck, the hosts of ‘The Breakfast Buzz’ on 98.9 The Buzz, described trans people as ‘nutjobs’ in a disturbing, offensive segment broadcast yesterday.
The hosts were responding to the city of Rochester’s decision to offer transgender health benefits to employees.
In the segment, they play Aerosmith’s ‘Dude Looks Like A Lady’ and repeatedly misgender trans people. Listen to the segment below.
