On Monday May 8, Torain, an employee of New York’s Power 105.1, made several on-air sexual and threatening comments about the daughter of Hot 97’s DJ Envy.
"Yes, I disrespected your seed. If you didn’t hear me, I said, I would like to do an R. Kelly on your seed, on your little baby girl. I would like to tinkle on her," the DJ said referring to an alleged videotape of the Chicago-bred pop singer urinating on an underage girl.
Torain also offered to pay $500 to any listener that could provide the location of the child’s school and made several racially and sexually charged comments about Envy’s wife, who is Asian/African American. “Oh yes, I’ll, I’ll come for your kids. I will come for your kids. I finally got the information on his slant eyed, whore wife. The information on his slant eyed, whore wife.”
DJ Envy said he found the comments deplorable and disgusting.
"Any man that says he would like to do an R. Kelly on a 4-year-old, who claims he wants to tinkle on her and skeet on her face might be a pedophile," DJ Envy told AllHipHop.com. "Instead of keeping his hatred focused solely on me, he threatened to molest my daughter. He’s a coward who hides behind his microphone, who will stop at nothing to generate ratings."
Torain’s former employee also denounced the on-air comments.
"Power 105 finds recent remarks broadcast by Troi Torain of the Star and Bucwild Morning Show to be wholly unacceptable," said Market Manager Rob Williams of Clear Channel in a statement. "He is no longer with Power 105.1 or Clear Channel Radio. We sincerely apologize to those who may have been offended by his remarks."
DJ Envy and Torain had been exchanging verbal insults over the air for weeks.
Eventually, a listener complained to a New York City Councilman, who then called Clear Channel Radio President/CEO John Hogan and demanded Star’s dismissal.
Premier Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel, airs syndicates the Star and Bucwild Morning Show in cities like Philadelphia, Miami and Richmond, VA. Premiere Radio Networks has suspended the show indefinitely.
According to published reports, the rest of the Star and Bucwild Morning team are on Torain and the Star and Bucwild team were terminated from Hot 97 in 2001 after they played sound effects of a plane crashing and a woman screaming in the aftermath of R&B singer Aaliyah’s death.
Torain’s manager, Wyatt Cheeks, was unavailable for comments at press time.
