"Haitian Joke" Gone Wrong

DJ Cipha Sounds is finding himself in hot water for this racist comment he made on his Hot 97 show, "The Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg Show": "The reason I’m HIV negative is cause I don’t mess with Haitian girls.” In his apology he states, "“I made a stupid, tasteless joke that was a one-liner that was taken totally the wrong way...I want to say sincerely that I apologize. I do nothing but rep for the Haitian people, but I said something stupid that I’m embarrassed about.” DJ Cipha Sounds has since been suspended following angry listeners blowing up the radio station's phone lines.

Now I don't know about you, but that didn't sound like a 'one-liner' to me. In my opinion that's the way dude feels and he spoke what he thinks about Haitian women. What do you think? Do you see the humor in his comment? Let me know @bigjyesupreme
