A radio DJ in Ohio who ridiculed a woman with Down's syndrome on the air after she called his show by mistake has been suspended from the station where he works.
Kellie Baker, 30, had been trying to call a friend but was left in tears when DJ Mo, presenter of The Mo Show in Canton, said to her 'obviously you have some sort of speech impediment', before asking 'are you from this country?'
DJ Mo issued an apology and has been suspended from his post at Q92 following the exchange, which Miss Baker's outraged family has described as 'blatant bullying'.
Miss Baker, described by her sister as a 'wonderful' person who views the world 'without cynicism and with complete and utter hope', had been trying to call a friend but dialed the number for the radio station by accident.
Miss Baker apologized for dialing the wrong number when the presenter asked her if she realized that she had called a radio station. When he asked her if she knew who he was, Miss Baker said she didn't, and the laughing DJ replied: 'Okay, so I can laugh at you and you won't know who to call and say you're offended. Very good.'
