A few NYC politicians lashed out against Hot 97 for playing a controversial song mocking the South East tsunami for four days. City Councilman Robert Jackson called Hot 97 "sick." Councilman John Liu noted that morning personality Todd Lynn said disturbingly "I'm going to start shooting Asians" and is working with others to have the FCC throw down its weight on Emmis Communications, owners of Hot 97, and prompt the firing of Miss Jones, the morning show host - essentially, do more than apologize and simply ask its morning show staffers to donate a week's salary to the tsunami cause. Councilman James Gennaro emphasized the need to go after Hot 97's advertisers.
