Ex-Rep. Joe Walsh ‘kicked off the air’ over slurs
Former Republican Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh says he has been suspended from his radio show for using racial slurs, while discussing the Washington Redskins name controversy.
Walsh tweeted about the incident in real time Thursday night.
The conservative talk show host says WIND-AM repeatedly cut his sound as he used the slurs.
Walsh appeared to be protesting his ability to use the term “redskins,” but not other racially sensitive terms.
He tweeted that he has been removed as the host of the nightly Joe Walsh Show until further notice.
The station has not commented on the matter.
