It’s been less than a week since superstar singer Whitney Houston suddenly passed away, but ever since news of her death spread many have been wondering if drugs were the cause. The singer publicly struggled with substance abuse, so it was only  natural for many to wonder. However, some people are taking things just a bit too far.

John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, two L.A.-based shock jocks have been suspended by their station, KFI, for calling the singer a “crack hoe” just moments after news of her death was announced.

Kobylt and Chiampou told their audience:

“At some point you’re just sick of it all, and so is everybody else in the industry. All her friends and hangers-on; everybody who had to deal with her.

“It’s like, ‘Ah Jesus, here comes the crack ho again, what’s she gonna do? Ah, look at that — she’s doin’ handstands next to the pool. Very good, crack ho.’ After a while, everybody’s exhausted. And then you find out she’s dead. It’s like, ‘Really? Took this long?’ ”

The pair have since apologized for their comments and the station has suspended the duo for 10 days.

But is that enough?

What do you think? Is suspension enough? Should the pair be fired?

    Whitney Houston by all accounts was a MARRIED, FAITHFUL woman for well over a decade. However, she was called a ‘ho’ because she is black and female.

    We have our own men to thank for making black woman synonymous with ‘ho’ and a list of other derogatory terms. Would there be outrage if Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Damon Wayans said this? No. They are every bit as racially misogynistic as these two jackasses, and the passes that we give them ARE the reason racists consider black women fair game.

    Anybody who does this to us should be punished. And I mean ANYBODY.

    Being that I live in California, I am a fan of the show and the radio station. This is nothing new about John (Ken isn’t quite as stupid as John) and Ken. They are going to say what’s on their mind from their own opinion. So what if he say’s something someone doesn’t like. Don’t listen to the station. Some may not like what he said, but I would defend his 1st amendment rights to say it. One thing I can say, I have learned so much about politics by listening to this station than anywhere.

    To hell with being suspended they need to be fired what they said was immoral and just totally uncalled for, their apology was fake, they wasn’t apologetic when they called her those names, nobody has said it was drug related I mean c’mon a person did something in life that was a mistake how long do you keep have to pay for ur mistakes, I’m a former addict but that doesn’t mean people have the right to judge me for my past. So let me ask this was it a mistake for them to disrespect her and speak ill of the dead. I say can they asses and maybe they will think before they speak next time
