UPDATE: Snapple, Sonic & Chipotle Pull Advertising From KRXQ : glaadBLOG.org 

In the wake of KRXQ radio hosts Rob Williams and Arnie States not apologizing for their offensive comments against transgender children, individuals continue to take action and share their concerns with the station.

You can listen to last week’s segment here and their follow-up to the controversy here.

On June 2, GLAAD issued a Call to Action and today renewed its callfor supporters to let KRXQ know that Rob and Arnie should apologize for their remarks. We have also been blogging about this story (hereand here).

Business leaders have also become alarmed by last week’s defamatory radio segment and are distancing themselves from the shock jocks and their dehumanizing remarks. Individuals are utilizing social networking tools like Facebook to voice their concerns and alert companies of the harmful diatribe.
