DeafDigest Labor Day weekend special

— TV comedian fired for insulting the deaf and the disabled

Going on right now is the Paralympics in London. Brtish TV comedian Frankie Boyle made some anti-deaf and anti-disabled comments, laughing at them and mocking at them. As a result, the TV people have immediately fired him. Very shocking!
