Dj Fired Following On-Air Racial And Sexual Remarks
TROI TORAIN, the co-host of a syndicated US radio show, has been sacked after making on-air racial and sexual comments about a rival DJ's wife and four-year-old daughter. Torain, better known as Star on Power 105.1's STAR + BUCWILD MORNING SHOW, was fired by his employer Clear Channel following the remarks he made between last Wednesday (03MAY06) and Monday (08MAY06). His comments, directed at local New York station HOT 97's DJ ENVY, made reference to both an alleged videotape of R KELLY urinating on an underage girl and DJ Envy's Asian/African-American wife. Torain told listeners, "Yes, I disrespected your seed. If you didn't hear me, I said, I would like to do an R Kelly on your seed, on your little baby girl. I would like to tinkle on her." Torain also offered to give $500 (GBP280) to any listener who informed him of the location of DJ Envy's daughter's school. He said, "Oh yes, I'll, I'll come for your kids. I will come for your kids. I finally got the information on his slant-eyed, whore wife." DJ Envy tells AllHipHop.com, "Any man that says he would like to do an R Kelly on a four-year-old, who claims he wants to tinkle on her and skeet on her face might be a paedophile. "Instead of keeping his hatred focused solely on me, he threatened to molest my daughter. He's a coward who hides behind his microphone, who will stop at nothing to generate ratings." Clear Channel's ROB WILLIAMS adds, "Power 105 finds recent remarks broadcast by Troi Torain of the Star And Bucwild Morning Show to be wholly unacceptable. He is no longer with Power 105.1 or Clear Channel Radio. "We sincerely apologise to those who may have been offended by his remarks." Torain and DJ Envy have been conducting an on-air feud for the last few weeks. Following the incidents, the rest of Torain's morning show team have reportedly been suspended. The same team, including Torain, were sacked by Hot 97 in 2001 after playing the sound of a plane crashing and a woman screaming soon after R+B singer AALIYAH died.
