Latinos Target John & Ken

KFI-AM’s John and Ken Show has Latinos demanding the pair’s ouster.  The Los Angeles California talk duo read an immigration rights advocate’s phone number on the air reportedly prompting a flood of hate calls to the man.  A protest at the station’s studios ensued.

KFI-AM issued a statement standing behind  John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou’s free speech rights.  So far Verizon and AT&T have pulled their commercials from the program.  Latino activists say they will continue to pressure other advertisers to leave the show.
