The day begins with word that Rob, Arnie, and Dawn have been suspended for their insensitive comments regarding the tragedy at the Boston Marathon, and that they’ve released a statement on their website, not apologizing for their actions, but claiming that they’ve done nothing wrong. Furthermore, they blame Don for getting them in trouble, and Entercom for “bullying” 98 Rock for suspending them.
As Don reads their statement out loud, which is full of lies and blames other people for their behavior, we hear clips from their show yesterday, in which they make fun of a spectator who had his legs amputated, rip the Oakland A’s fans who chanted “Lets Go Boston!” at the Coliseum Tuesday night, the Yankees for playing “Sweet Caroline,” and tease their “Top 5 Things We Hate About Boston” list. Don proceeds to go on an epic tear, ripping Rob, Arnie, and Dawn a new one for their hack show, their inexcusable actions, and then lying to everyone in their website statement, and not taking responsibility. The listeners call and text in with their takes as well. We also hear President Obama’s speech at the Boston memorial service this morning.
It’s then time for the “Phantom News.” Among the stories today, numerous baseball teams are playing “Sweet Caroline” during their games, Whoopie Goldberg doesn’t care who replaces Joy Behar, and Heather Locklear likes semen on her face. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
