BofA, Verizon Ax Ads From KRXQ - by Michelle Garcia -

Eight companies have pulled advertising from a Sacramento, Calif., radio station after the hosts of a morning talk show encouraged violence against transgender kids. 

So far, Bank of America, Verizon, Carl's Jr., Snapple, Chipotle, and Sonic have all pulled their advertisements from KRXQ, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Wells Fargo bank said that it did not advertise with the station during the March 28 broadcast, but will not commit to any more purchases. Nissan also said that they will not renew their contract with the station, which ended June 1. Photo 

Rob Williams and Arnie States, two of the hosts of Rob, Arnie & Dawn in the Morning, were discussing the parents of a boy in Omaha who wants to transition from male to female. Rob called the boy "a weird person who is demanding attention." He suggested that his mother tell the boy that wearing a dress is "not what we're doing in this culture." He also called transgender people "freaks," asserting that therapy could steer them away from being transgender, since "they were [probably] molested" as children. Read more  ADVOCATE.COM
