NEW YORK — Morning show DJs on Manhattan's top hip-hop station are contributing a week's pay to tsunami relief (search) — but not out of kindness.
Last week, Hot 97's (search) morning show, led by Miss Jones (search), performed a parody of the 1980s megahit "We Are the World" that included racial slurs and the lyrics, "Go find your mommy / I just saw her float by / a tree went through her head / and now the children will be sold to child slavery."
WQHT posted an apology on its Web site that also said, "'Miss Jones in the Morning,' along with her entire staff, have agreed to contribute one week's pay to tsunami relief efforts."

I swear some of these radio stations should be off the air, period.

This was an insensitive thing to do, but IMO they are protected by the First Amendment.

I have two takes on this. First off, the DJ absloutly can be fired. The first ammendment does not apply to companies,
-There was a time
When the sun was shining bright
So I went down to the beach to catch me a tan
Then the next thing I knew
A wave 20 feet high came and washed your whole country away
And all at once you could hear all the screaming Chinks
And no one was safe from the wave
There were Africans drowning
Little Chinamen swept way
You could hear God laughing "Swim You bitches, swim"
So now you're screwed, it's a tsunami
You better run and better kiss your ass away
Go find your mommy
I just saw her float by, a tree right through her head, and now your children will be sold child slavery
The ex-Manchester City striker joked David Beckham had turned down a move to Newcastle United because of trouble with the "Toon Army in Asia".
A morning DJ and her crew were pulled off the airwaves after airing a song in horrible taste.
The song had lyrics such as, “You can hear God laughing, Swim you bitches swim ”
It was bad. Personally, I think the Devil Just Got into Miss Jones.
The studio management was cool about how they suspended her.
“Can you come over here Miss Jones. Put on these headphones and tell us what you think of this song".
“Look for a new job bitch, woot woot.
Look for a new job bitch, woot woot”
