Radio hosts in New York compared their toast preferences to famous Black women’s skin tones during a segment … and yeah, it came off every bit as bad as you’d think.
The racially-charged convo aired Wednesday morning on Buffalo’s 97 Rock, with Morning Bull Show co-host Rob Lederman comparing toasted bread to a trio of black celebs — Serena Williams, Halle Berry and Gayle King.
Lederman says he toasts his bread in line with how attractive he finds certain Black women … essentially saying Serena is too dark for his taste, Gayle’s not even a thought and Halle is just right.
The fallout has been swift … Cumulus Media, which owns the station, says it already fired Lederman and suspended the other co-hosts, including Rich “Bull” Gaenzler and Chris Klein.
In addition to his suspension, Gaenzler got canned from 2 other gigs as the in-arena host for the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team.
