Have Sarah And Vinnie, the morning show hosts on San Francisco’s Alice 97.3, been suspended over remarks about gays? Or is this a stab at generating media attention? Either way, they’re doing something wrong.
The pair — or at least Vinnie — stand accused of making derogatory comments about The Gs on their 5:30-10am morning show, which “garnered a large amount of complaints against them,” says one report. But without GLAAD telling us they said mean things, we don’t know what’s going on! (Even the blogs don’t know all the details.)
Meanwhile, this wouldn’t be the first time the radio hosts — and why is it always radio hosts doing this crap? no filter? no time delay? — found themselves causing controversy. There was also the alcoholism and rehab storyline from 2008.
I was a big fan of Sarah and Vinnie when I lived up north, and I never thought they were anything less than supportive of gay rights, and gays in general. OTOH, it is a morning comedy show and, in trying to be funny, smart people can say stupid things on the spur of the moment. I’m interested to find out more details.
Talk about over-sensitive. They are wonderfully supportive of us. Hey, I thought Vinnie was out? It’s been so long since I listened to broadcast media.
@Fitz: It’s hard to say if people are being over-sensitive when no one seems to be reporting what Vinnie apparently said in the first place.
@RS: I’m airing on the side of forgiveness. I don’t think I have been to a Pride in this area where they weren’t out there with us.
Why is this article posted if it has no facts about what was said??
What a waste of time! Don’t post fact-less articles, Queerty!
i thinks its mean to make fun of peopl,e
