Christian Fauria of Boston’s WEEI has been suspended after doing an incredibly racist impression of NFL agent Don Yee who represents New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

The incident occurred during the sports radio network’s “Ordway, Merloni & Fauria” show on Friday when the hosts talked about how a columnist from the Boston Herald got pranked by a guy who pretended to be Yee. The hosts then tasked Fauria to read the fabricated story that the troll sent to the columnist.

Dr. Riko Muranaka is an acclaimed doctor from Japan who is known for her support on the HPV vaccine, while Trinh T Minh-ha is an award-winning filmmaker from Vietnam. Despite the two women looking entirely different, “Woman’s Hour” host Jenni Murray ended up interviewing the wrong person on the show.

According to the NYDailyNews, Malaysian minister of communications Salleh Keruak explained that the decision was made due to public complaint. The complaint stemmed from several people who thought that the “Despacito” lyrics were too vulgar in nature.
