During Kimberly and Beck’s radio show, which airs on 95.1 from 2 p.m. ET to 7 p.m. ET on weekdays, the two hosts were discussing Madison and Bret Mavity, who were reportedly attacked by looters shortly after a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Rochester, according to Democrat & Chronicle. 

And unfortunately, the manner in which the hosts’ discussed their attackers was incredibly offensive.

Kimberly proceeded to ask Beck if the supposed looters were acting “n-word-ish” and “n-word-ly.” She didn’t use the n-word, though by directing the abbreviation at people, it was wildly offensive in and of itself.

“Okay, let me ask you a question. Were they acting n-word-ish?” Kimberly said during the live broadcast on the iHeartMedia-owned station.

Kimberly and Beck proceeded to mull over why they aren’t allowed use the term “n-word” to describe people, and ultimately decided, “No one’s offended by that.” 

It goes without saying nobody should ever call anyone an “n-word,” regardless if they aren’t saying the actual word, so many felt as though Kimberly and Beck’s termination was well-deserve. 

And along with appalled listeners across the nation, their colleagues were eager to have them fired, too.
