He wasn’t the first antigay radio jerk and he won’t be the last, but Dean Blundell is finally off the air.
The Canadian radio host has been stirring up trouble for years, but now the station has announced that after over a decade, he’s gone for good.
This follows a controversy last month in which Blundell and a producer laughed about a same-sex rape case in which the producer was on the jury. You can listen to clips (warning: auto-play) here, but here’s a sample:
Blundell: “Are there any man-whores?”
Welsman: “Oh yeah. They’re all over the place, and that’s just in the courthouse.”
Blundell: “When you said guilty, was he like, ‘Hot diggity dog! Everybody dance now?’ When he phoned home, ‘Good news, Mom . . . I’m going straight to the showers.’”
Ughhhhhhh shower jokes, come on.
Well, fear not, Toronto, your long local nightmare is at an end. Now, how long before he pops up on some other lousy station?
