WDJQ radio DJ 'Mo' suspended after mocking woman with Down Syndrome on air

WDJQ radio DJ 'Mo' suspended after mocking woman with Down Syndrome on air

Canton, Ohio (WOIO) -- A phone call to a Canton area radio station made by Kellie Baker, a 30-year-old woman with Down Syndrome, was the source of amusement for one disc jockey at WDJQ.

That DJ, Mo is now suspended from the airwaves and has apologized on-air to Baker.

Baker's family says she called the radio station by mistake. Listeners of the radio show could hear Kellie repeatedly trying to end the call but Mo keeps her on the air.

His mocking continues with, "You don't know who Mo is? Ok, so I can laugh at you and you won't know who to call to say you're offended? Ha Ha. Very good."

3. What a dick

but I've noticed that Radio Hosts can be very mean because they don't have to look the person they are talking to in the eye.

4. I think they are just plain mean people whether they can look you in the eye or not..

They think belittling people is funny. Republicans are famous for that, and Rush is their Hero for it....

5. Its not just political "DJ's"

here in Chicago on 99.5, a country station the morning people can be very mean to people who call in to win tickets.
