Radio DJ terminated after comparing toast to Black women’s skin tones, On Air.
A Buffalo radio host was fired from his gig after comparing his toast preferences to the skin tone of famous black women.
Rob Lederman, the “Morning Bull Show” host on Buffalo’s 97 Rock, made the offensive comments while riffing on how toasted he takes his bread, a local NBC affiliate reported.
“I have them to the attractiveness of women that I find to be attractive,” Lederman said.
“So I will never go to a Serena Williams level … but I’m very comfortable with a Halle Berry level. I need a little bit of mulatto still coming through,” Lederman said on a clip of the audio shared by WGRZ.
“Is Gayle King, that’s not in your realm?,” co-host Chris Klein interjected.
“No Gayle King is not even on my toaster level,” Lederman replied.
Cumulus Media, which owns the station, swiftly sent Lederman a pink slip and suspended Klein and co-host Rich “Bull” Gaenzler, the outlet reported.
Cumulus Media operates from a clearly-defined set of programming principles and there is no question that Rob Lederman’s comments made on The Morning Bull Show are in direct violation of those principles,” the company reportedly said.

Mother Discovers 20-Year-Old Man Living Under Her Teenage Daughter’s Bed
Noe this is scary and almost unbelievable as a 20-year-old man from Ohio was found living under the bed of young girl he met on Instagram. Prosecutors said that Jaret Wright lived under the girl’s bed for three weeks before he was discovered by her mother.
During that time, Wright allegedly raped her and took nude photos of her. Police did not identify the girl, only saying that she was between 13 and 18 years old.
The girl knew that Wright was living under her bed, though it is unclear if she invited him into her home or if he stayed there all day.
Wright was indicted on three counts of rape and one count of producing child pornography. He is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $50,000 bond.
