Radio DJ Suspended Over Haitian Remarks

NEW YORK - A Hot 97 DJ who made derogatory remarks about Haitian women has apologized.

Cipha Sounds apologized for saying that he avoids HIV by not hooking up with Haitian women after a protest by Haitian community leaders outside the station.

Cipha Sounds is of Puerto Rican decent and made the comment on his morning show. He has since been suspended indefinitely by the station.

`The reason I`m HIV negative is cause I don`t mess with Haitian girls,`he said on air, a comment that resulted in dozens of outraged callers, Tweets and Facebook posts.

`I made a stupid, tasteless joke that was a one-liner that was taken totally the wrong way,` Cipha said in an on-air apology this week. `I want to say sincerely that I apologize. I do nothing but rep for the Haitian people, but I said something stupid that I`m embarrassed about.`
