NJ Hosts Taken Off Air After "Turban Man" Jabs at State (Sikh) AG - NY Post

https://nypost.com/2018/07/26/nj-radio-hosts-taken-off-air-after-turban-man-jabs-at-state-ag/

A pair of hosts on one of New Jersey’s top radio stations have been bounced from the airwaves after they mocked the state’s attorney general — who is a Sikh-American — as “turban man” on the air, the station said early Thursday.


Dennis Malloy and Judi Franco made the inflammatory comments about Attorney General Gurbir Grewal on their Wednesday afternoon show on New Jersey 101.5 while talking about his plan to suspend marijuana prosecutions.

“You know the new attorney general? I’m never going to know his name, I’m just gonna say the guy with the turban,” said Malloy.

“Turban man!” Franco could be heard saying.

Malloy, laughing, then blames Grewal, who wears a turban as part of his faith, for his inability to remember his name.

“If it offends you, then don’t wear the turban, man, and I’ll remember your name,” Malloy laughed. “But Turban Man — is that highly offensive?”

“To me? No. To people who wear turbans, could be,” replied Franco.

2. I guess he had to invent a reason to hate him.

Mr. Gurwal looks like quite a respectable gentleman, and his wife is lovely.
