Normally I would be filled with snark and the such...

But this guy was just an asshole!
 
2013-02-04 11:54:08 AM  
Sounds like something Captain Jenks would have done.

I'm curious if the guy screening the calls believed the caller was authentic or fake and told the DJ beforehand.

There's only 11ish posts in this thread. So I guess the real take-away should be that only a minority of Fark DOESN'T think making fun of people with Down's syndrome is funny. That really shouldn't come as a surprise. Internet farkwad theory and all that.

Thank the stars I am a talk show host and not a DJ.  Otherwise, I'd have to shoot myself in the face for playing shiatty music, cracking jokes someone else came up with and pretending to like pop culture.
 
2013-02-04 12:51:30 PM  
Oh please

I've heard the actual bit, and he didn't do anything wrong.She was a random caller, he couldn't understand her. After asking a few times about why he couldn't understand her, she kept talking. He never said anything about her being retarded, never even suggested it. The first time anyone mentioned that she was a Downs "kid" is when her parents started complaining that he was mocking their precious snowflake, long after the fact. TFA is stunningly one-sided in the coverage, making it appear that he picked her to be his victim.

How about "Protip: Don't make fun of anybody for sounding retarded"?

I mean seriously, would it be OK if she wasn't retarded, just profoundly deaf from birth? Or had suffered a stroke? Or had lost part of her jaw or throat to cancer, affecting her ability to speak? Or suffered brain damage at the hands of a hit-and-run driver? (And yes, I have friends and relatives in every one of those circumstances).

Help me out here Farkers, which instances of sounding retarded is it OK to make fun of? I need some kind of scorecard to keep up.

2013-02-04 12:58:56 PM  
I just want to be clear.
If someone is just regular-old dumb, like an IQ below 100, it's okay to mock of them for just being dumb, like everyone does in every thread here at Fark.
But if the IQ level is even lower, as in functionally retarded, then it's terrible and you're a bad person.

I don't know.  To me, retarded is retarded.

It's just some are declared and classified retarded, others are Republican.  They kind of classify and declare themselves at that point....

You have an inordinately large number of ailments running through your genes. May want to think about that before having kids.
But going back to your question, it's generally unacceptable to make fun of people's bad fortunes in life. It's a little weird that you haven't figured this out yet but perhaps that's your own shortcoming.

I'm guessing he doesn't have a screener.  Most stations are just a jock in a studio with a board, a computer and a phone system that lights up when there's a call.

How is a DJ in a position to call anyone retarded?

That kettle sure is black.
 
2013-02-04 01:21:05 PM  
Here's a better pro-tip :

If you're a radio DJ, go back to school and apply yourself until you learn skills that are useful. You probably barely have a job as it is, and your field is only shrinking and becoming less relevant every single day.

Some more free advice : No one cares about you, the guy who's on before you, or the skanky little chick your station hired to drum up male ratings. You're all completely replaceable and entirely forgetable.

When someone microwaves a pizza to 200 degrees then burns the roof of their mouth. Or when they have a tongue-piercing. Or when they're tripping balls. More generally, when someone of ordinary cognitive ability who did something carelessly or intentionally stupid to cause a temporary/reversible not-overly-serious mental or speech impairment.

Oh, and people with half their mouth numbed from dental unaesthetic...idiotic DJs could do a regular call-in segment with dental patients.
