Star Temporarily Suspended From Hot 97

New York morning DJ, Star of Hot 97 was recently

suspended by his employers for unknown reasons.

"Star has been suspended and we don’t know

when he will return," co-host Prozac Girl aka Keysha Whitaker told listeners.

Sources claim that Star was suspended for negative

comments he made against radio station advertisers.

Barry Mayo, Senior VP and Marketing Manager of

Hot 97’s parent company Emmis Communications said that while the show didn’t

have that many rules to follow, Star "broke a huge one."

For now, Star has been replaced by Cam’ron &

The Diplomats alongside the normal morning crew.

This is not the first time Star has been suspended.

Shortly after Aaliyah’s death in 2001, Star made jokes about the plane crash

with sound effects of a plane crashing and screaming.

He later apologized to Aaliyah’s boyfriend,

Dame Dash, her family and her fans.
