Popular Hot 97 DJ suspended indefinitely

A popular radio disc jockey has been suspended indefinitely after he made a derogatory statement about Haitian women.

Hot 97 DJ Cipha Sounds, whose real name is Luis Diaz, said on Friday ?The reason I'm HIV negative is because I haven't messed with any Haitian girls.?

Following the comment, the Haitian community called for Diaz's dismissal.

Diaz did apologize on air a few hours after he made the statement, calling the remark stupid and tasteless.
