Phat Joe has apologised to listeners and the LGBTQ+ community for a derogatory term he used to describe transgender people.
The controversial talk show host used the term tr**** in his morning show this Tuesday during a conversation about Cardi B.
The Radio 2000 DJ recieved backlash for the use of the term and was asked to apologize to those offended.
“When I used the word I was actually paraphrasing what Cardi B said. She used that particular word and I was chastising her for the message in her video. I did not know that the word was a no-no,” he said.
Phat Joe also said that many people were still uneducated about the correct words to use in place of the derogatory ones.
