Buffalo Station Suspends Contributor After Racist Tweet

By Kevin Eck Comment

WKBW has “suspended its relationship” with “Airborne” Eddy Dobosiewicz, a local comedian and weekly feature host, after he sent a racist tweet about the Baltimore rioters.

The Buffalo News reports, Dobosiewicz’ tweet said that those protesting the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore were “acting like animals.” The tweet included a picture of baboons climbing on a car.

Station General Manager Michael Nurse said in a statement that the comments Dobosiewicz posted on the social media network were “insensitive, inappropriate and harmful.”

Here’s a screen grab of the tweet.
