(1/4) Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. (2/4)We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible. (3/4)It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future. (4/4) Oh, and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position.
