An American DJ who mocked a woman with Down Syndrome after she mistakenly called into his show has been suspended from an Ohio radio station.
Kellie Baker, 30, who has Down Syndrome, was trying to call a friend, but mistakenly dialed The Mo Show at Q92, a radio station near Canton, Ohio. DJ Mo issued an apology at 2 p.m. today on 92.5 WDJQ, stating that he is willing to meet Baker for a face-to-face chat.
“At the time of the call, I honestly believed it was a prank. However, that doesn’t excuse what happened or what I did. I take full responsibility. I am truly sorry and I hope I can earn your trust back,” DJ Mo said in an audio file releasedBY Q92.
