Radio Host Making Tastless Joke About Haitian Women And HIV

This is a sign when we unite, great things can happen. The Haitian community in New York has been outraged and protesting since a DJ from HOT 97 radio made a comment which said: "The reason I am HIV Negative is because I don't mess with Haitian Women".

According to HOT 97 Management: "The Haitian community is an important part of our listenership whom we respect and value. The suspension is an indication of the importance we place on delivering a product that respects our Haitian audience. It's a very regrettable and unfortunate circumstance for all involved and particularly because we know this is not the nature of this young man who has been an advocate of the Haitian community and a big part of our fund-raising efforts for Haiti."
