Radio talk show host fired for racist “monkeys” comment

DAN SILEO FIRED FOR CALLING PLAYERS “THREE MONKEYS”

On the first day of NFL free agency the Tampa Bay Buccaneers spent $150 million signing Vincent Jackson, Carl Nicks and Eric Wright. That has the whole town excited.

Unfortunately for radio talk show host Dan Sileo of WDAE he got TOO excited. Sileo referred to the players as “those three monkeys.” Sileo didn’t even last one day. He was fired by the radio station.

Naturally, some media people were outraged. Not about three African-American players being called “monkeys” but about Sileo being fired for using “politically incorrect” speach. Put Glenn Beck on that list.
