So much for First Amendment rights. I get that they offended people and I feel that hate and negative rhetoric at this time. But there is an on-off switch. If people aren't grown up enough to use it, then they should find something else to listen to. KFI erred on this one.

correction: *...hate and negative rhetoric at this time, are inappropriate.
