The Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council has slammed a Toronto radio station CFNY-FM The Edge and its DJ for making rude comments about Justin Bieber and his fans. Last October CFNY’s radio host Dean Blundell implied that Justin was gay.
Justin’s fans then attacked him and Blundell tweeted back: ‘Save your energy for puberty or to fend off your dad tonight while you’re sleepin’.’ Blundell talked about the tweets on his show and referred to a 12-year-old critic as a future ‘chugger,’ slang for a male prostitute.
In June, CBSC found Blundell’s comments to be ‘gratuitous and unnecessary‘ & a violation of Equitable Portrayal Code. The station’s penalty was to announce the decision twice on air during peak listening hours.
