WTAF?! Conservative station WMAL DC bows to the mob, cancels conservative host Amber Athey over so-called 'racist' Kamala Harris joke

Conservatives are certainly no stranger to being canceled by the frothy-mouthed, chest-thumping, paste-eating, screeching Left, but when it happens at a supposed conservative radio station? Really?!

Amber Athey, who was a co-host on WMAL DC has been canceled over a joke she told about Kamala Harris on Twitter.

They accused her of being … wait for it … RACIST.

We can’t make this up.

The joke wasn’t even about Kamala herself, it was about her SUIT.

From Amber Athey via TownHall:

Later that afternoon, just before 4 p.m., I received a call out of the blue from Jeff Boden, the vice president of Cumulus Washington, D.C, and Kriston Fancellas, the vice president of Human Resources.

They told me that the tweet I sent about Kamala was “racist” and that subsequent follow-ups defending myself and making fun of the efforts to cancel me were unacceptable. I had violated the company’s social media policy, they said, and I was terminated effective immediately.

They did not have the courtesy to offer me an opportunity to defend myself, nor did they speak to anyone at the program before handing down their decision.

Despite multiple appeals, during which company officials admitted that the perception of racism was more important than whether or not my tweet was actually racist, the company has refused to reverse its decision. Meanwhile, my image and bio is still being used on the WMAL website and social media channels to promote their programming. I am racist enough not to be paid, but not so racist that my likeness cannot be affiliated with the station, apparently.

Keep in mind, this is a CONSERVATIVE station.

What the Hell?

*snort*

Hey look, she’s still there.

Sorta.

This editor reached out to WMAL DC to find out WTH they were thinking … and by ‘reached out’ we mean dragged them on Twitter but you know what we mean. Doubt we’ll get much back from the station but if we do, dear reader, you’ll be among the first to know.

On that note, clearly, conservatives aren’t even safe on so-called conservative platforms, so if you are inclined, please support Twitchy and our other properties by signing up for VIP today.
