I just found out about this and it makes me so upset I just have to post about it. A radio station in NYC called Hot 97 made a parody of one of Michael Jackson's songs making fun of the Tsunami victims.

Quote:
There was a time when the sun was shining bright
So I went down to the beach to catch me a tan
Then the next thing I knew, a wave twenty feet high
Came and washed your country away

And all at once you could hear the screaming ch*nks
And no one was safe from the wave
There were Africans drowning, little Chinamen swept away You could hear God laughing, "Swim, you b*tches, swim!"

So now you're screwed, it's the tsunami
You better run or kiss your ass away, go find your mommy
I just saw her float by, a tree went through her head
and now your children will be sold to child slavery (2X)

You can hear the song http://students.washington.edu/jeesuk/longer_hot97_tsunami.mp3 and you can also hear Miss Info (who is Asian) protesting the song and the other two co-hosts attacking her for it.

That song is horrible! Some people just don't seem to care. >=0000000~~~~~!!!!!!!! I mean, I'm not saying you should but, you might as well make up a song making fun of God just so they can take a hint. Well, thanks for spreading this message around. Cya. :)

wth!!! I surprised this is not all over the news. Though I knew this was coming. People like them is no different from the people that made fun of the victim of 9-11. The world is the way it is from people like them. All I have to say... is that it won't be funny when your time has come = Phuc!<er !!!

I'd rather be hated for who I am rather than loved for who I pretend to be...

It's awful how people can laugh at other's pain and anguish, even going as far as doing it on public. It seriously irks me how someone would have the brians to write those lyrics.

parodies are meant to be taken lightly and not at offense but i think this song is taking the tsunami TOO lightly.... it really is disrespectful, esp with all the relief work gg on and stuff....

I think my brother listened to this station while me and him lived at nyc... Maybe it was another radio station....
Anyways.... that was just horrible.
Wait till the victims hear of this. A massive uproar will happen. The host better be running for their lives when that happens. I know I would find them and beat them if I was one of the victims. I really would.

Hot97, being a rap/urban station, does a whole lot that I find offensive; this is just one more thing to add to the list.

Lol I want to see how if he had been in the Tsunami when it was happened, and God put a good laugh on him ass swimming...
gah, some ppl are pathetic...
I am not that religious, but I bet all the victims of tsunami in my country wouldn't like to hear that song even a bit..
I myself prefer not to d/l it.... that's against my principles....
well, I do hope that God put a real good laugh on anyone that made that song...

That disgusting song, or a story about it, WILL show up on the news sooner or later (if it already hasn't). Especially when the donation messages are all over the TV stations? Yeah.

And someone is going to get sued for it.

Exactly..they should really put themselves in the victims' shoes.
I don't know if petitions work, but I signed it anyway.

I saw a short thing about it on the news last night but nobody got sued. The radio station issued an apology and said that they will donate a week's salary to the tsunami fund.

I wish a huge earthquake would strike Hot 97 radio station's building in order to make fun of them. Lifeless beings!!! >=0!! >=0!! >=0!!

What is "normal", anyway? If you aren't troubling the rest of the world, then there's no harm in being abnormal.
