DJ Suspended After Posting Freddie Gray’s Arrest Record
A Pittsburgh disc jockey, Mike Jax, posted Freddie Gray’s arrest record on Instagram.
WAMO suspended him yesterday and said, “We are dedicated to presenting journalistic integrity as well as being sensitive to our listeners and their concerns. WAMO 100 does not share the views or condone the comments expressed on a WAMO 100 personal social media page.
Jax claims he was misunderstood:
I’d like to apologize for my previous post. My intention was not to justify Freddie Gray’s death. It was to highlight that his arrest record DOES NOT justify his death. I’m sorry I was not more clear.
