After comments directed toward the Haitian community and the HIV epidemic, Hot 97 has decided to suspend popular on-air personality DJ Cipha Sounds effective immediately.Â Second, Cipha will immediately undertake sensitivity training focused on the Haitian community and specifically, the challenges the Haitian community (specifically women) has faced in terms of the HIV epidemic.
Charlamagne Tha God from power105′s BreakfastClub Morning Show decided to address the controversy. He even drove home some worthwhile points. Never should HIV jokes be made, especially when considering the fact the well over 200,000 Haitians lost their lives because of that devastating earthquake.
Charlamagne also addressed Peter Rosenberg, his “bitchassness” comment on Twitter and the apparent overall lack of compassion he showed after Haitians protested in front of Hot 97.
