Dominic Dieter, a DJ at Cleveland rock station WMMS made the comment during the Rover’s Morning Glory show after a man wrote to the radio station about his gay daughter.
“You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight,” Dieter said, according to viewers.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is now pushing for Dieter to be suspended. Aaron McQuade, GLAAD’s director of news and field media, released the following statement: “It was appalling and dangerous for this show to tell a father that he should have one of his friends rape his daughter. That’s essentially how Dieter responded to this listener, and this is no laughing matter in a world where people are too often the victims of violence and sexual assault based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation. And Dieter gave this vile advice to everyone who was listening, including educators, parents and children — sending the message that it’s okay to physically or sexually abuse people who are perceived to be gay.”
