(Newser) – Dissing Whitney Houston has earned Los Angeles radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou a week-and-a-half in the penalty box. KFI suspended the popular duo after they poked fun at Houston's drug problems. "At some point you're just sick of it all, and so is everybody else in the industry," they said. "It's like, 'Ah Jesus, here comes the crack ho again, what's she gonna do?'" John and Ken apologized for using "inappropriate language."

The duo have often been criticized for making anti-Latino remarks. The suspension "looks like a PR stunt to garner John and Ken even more notoriety than they already have," writes Simone Wilson at LA Weekly. "Because personalities this infamous can only get bigger by diving further down the toilet hole."
