Hot 97′s Cipha Sounds Cracks Joke About Haitian Girls & HIV; Protesters Ask For His Resignation
DJ Cipha Sounds—one half of The Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show on NYC’s Hot 97 FM—has the Haitian community in New York calling for his resignation. Last Friday, Cipha made the following on-air statement:

Protesters gathered in front of Hot 97′s offices today, demanding Cipha’s walking papers. For those who’ve never heard the radio show, their comedy is sprinkled with a light dose of Howard Stern–style antics. It’s not uncommon for Cipha to make jokes about his Puerto Rican heritage while Rosenberg quips about being Jewish.
Cipha did offer an on-air apology. Check out the video:
