The line has been crossed and then some.

I normally don't post things from a different forum, and I don't know if it has been mentioned here or not, but I thought this should be brought to everyone's attention. 790 The Zone in Atlanta was making fun of Steve Gleason and his battle with ALS. Karma is a cruel ***** and they will have theirs. This is bulletin board material if I've ever seen any. These classless bums just introduced their beloved Falcons into the House of Pain this year. Enjoy that job while you have it, guys. Collect your food stamps and Obamacare at the next window.

"Just had a whole segment making fun of Steve Gleason and him talking through a computer. The arse clowns from Mayhem in the AM did this 3 minute joke where they pretended that Steve Gleason called in and they asked him questions. Most of his responses were in the form of a knock knock joke and at one point he says he doesn't know if he will be alive next Thursday.

Beyond offensive and in such poor taste. I normally don't get worked up by talk radio but i called them a gave them a big frick you.

I suggest others do the same."

WOW .... 790 The Zone in Atlanta making fun of Gleason @ TigerDroppings.com

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Atlanta radio station apologizes for making fun of Steve Gleason | ProFootballTalk
ALS has robbed Gleason of the ability to do most of the simple everyday things that most of us take for granted, like speaking and using his hands. As a result, the only way Gleason is able to communicate is to use computer software that allows him to type with his eyes, and provides him with a voice to speak. The guys at 790 The Zone apparently thought it would be funny to engage in a mock interview in which they poked fun at Gleason and used a robotic voice to portray things Gleason might say.

Understandably, many listeners were angered. When contacted by PFT, 790 The Zone confirmed that it has received strong negative feedback after airing the bit. And Nick Cellini of the “Mayhem in the A.M.” show that ran the Gleason-bashing segment acknowledged on Twitter that he had made a serious error in judgment.

“My apologies to everyone. It was a stupid attempt at humor that backfired. Emphasis on stupid,” Cellini wrote.

It’s hard to imagine how anyone ever thought making fun of Steve Gleason was a good idea. There’s no word yet on whether the folks who were involved in this will remain on the air at 790 The Zone.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

I just called ... The producer will "call me back" ... I said "These guys are lowest form of life --- absolute oxygen thiefs and they should and will be fired for this ... It'll go viral and you'll hear about it on Sportcenter tonight."

She completely agreed with me and was very apologetic. I can't believe ANYONE would do this ... absolutely shameful.

Karma will get who? The Radio Station right? Our team had nothing to do with this garbage...the whole city called in and ripped these guys a new one. I'm all for trash talk but this was just classless on their behalf.
