This fool has been getting fired and rehired by radio and TV stations in St. Louis since I was in elementary school. Seriously. Why do people keep giving this moron a job? He’s offensive, a poor man’s version of Don Imus. He’s not edgy. He’s just an asshole. I don’t get it. It’s not like the radio station can play innocent when he screws up, live, on air being either A) sexist, B) stupid or C) racist.
Well, once again JC has been suspended without pay, yet again, from a radio station for being stupid and racist at the same time. Seems he was mad at Ameren UE about his power going out during the Super Bowl, so he went on a long-meandering rant about the people of Ameren and a popular Israeli-made assault rifle.
While talking about Ameren, Corcoran said, “I swear, I’m gonna get on top of your building with an AK-47 and just start picking people off.” (KMOV.com)
Later in the broadcast he adopted a mock black dialect one block shy from Coon Town by the way of “What’s Happenin'” and insulted the black VP of Ameren.

Needless to say, the cops didn’t appreciate having to pretend to take his Texas Tower Sniper fantasy seriously and beef up security at Ameren’s headquarters and the NAACP in St. Louis didn’t appreciate shuck n’ jive routine to Don Imus’ insidious hip hop vernacular in Nappy Headed Ho-gate last year.
You can listen to it for yourself to see if it merits an Imus level of outrage. I thought it was offensive, but I mostly found it ignorant and insulting. I’m fine with him being suspended because he’s just going to eventually get fired again anyway.
And then someone will hire him and it will start all over again.
