Radio Host Fired For Saying Serena Williams is Too Dark For Him, Compares Toast To Black Women’s Skin Tones (AUDIO)
Radio hosts in New York clearly could not read the room or what has been going on for the past few years in this country when they decided to compare their toast preferences to famous Black women’s skin tones during a controversial segment.
On Buffalo’s 97 Rock with Morning Bull Show co-host Rob Lederman, the toast comparisons came up with a trio of black celebs — Serena Williams, Halle Berry and Gayle King.
Lederman said Serena is too dark for his taste and Gayle is not even a thought, while Halle Berry is just right.
Cumulus Media, which owns the station, says it already fired Lederman and suspended the other co-hosts, including Rich “Bull” Gaenzler and Chris Klein.
Gaenzler caught even more hell when he got canned from two other jobs as the in-arena host for the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team.
