Never heard of Hot 91.9 and it's been since a while I've heard of Martinengo.

“This morning an unfortunate and completely unacceptable incident took place during the Breakfast Show whereby, during the course of the broadcast, a reference was made by anchor presenter, Sasha Martinengo, who said ‘[A]nd people still listen to this monkey,’ referring to Mr. Julius Malema,” the statement reads.

Guess the radio station didn't have a choice given the shitstorm it wouldve become, mostly about race.

That was not a bright idea, I guess he can afford losing a job, totally unnecessary.

Sounds like one of those terrible US radio names. Hot 91.9, Rock 84.7, Radio KDVZ or some nonsense.

I rather say nothing. Even commenting anything can land you in the SJW zoo.

It cannot be used in certain context.

That context being it cannot be used with black people? You can call any other person that behaves like an idiot a monkey. Tell 5 kids of different races climbing a tree "hey you monkeys get out of the tree before you break limbs" you will be labeled racist and persecuted if just one of those kids are black, it's how it is.
