To End X96's Hurtful Advertising Toward Disabled

      Sterling Kerr

      Salt Lake City, UT

-See photo of "X96 Short Bus" (If you have a problem with this advertising. You can email Mr. Craig Hanson, chanson@simmonsmedia.com)

-I am 13 years old. I have volunteered for the last 4 years helping kids with special needs. These kids are awesome and others should not make fun of them. I think that many people agree with me.

-Thousands of children actually ride similar buses to school, including my 12 year old brother! They are making fun of him and many other people with mental and physical disabilities. 

-All people should be treated with respect and dignity.

-X96 also has the “Celebutard News gallery”. It has photos of celebrities with distorted faces. See link: http://www.x96.com/photoblock.php?id=73. The people working at X96 Radio are intentionally trying to hurt people with disabilities.  As of 7:30 PM March 26, 2012 the photos of the distorted faces were removed.  The goal is to have the whole "Celebutard News gallery" disappear. 

-X96s advertisers are stereotyping people with disabilities. Stereotyping leads to distortions and lies about a particular group of people.

-Parents of children with disabilities are also hurt by this type of advertising.

-It is not funny.

-This bus degrades people. Many of whom literally do not have a voice.

-Please join me to fight to stop this abusive advertising.

      For all of those people I have supported over the past 22 years who can't sign this themselves.

      On behalf of my foster daughter of 13 years and the other several hundred people I have cared for in the past 20 years that do not have voice to state how insulting this is. Grow up X96! Most of the world gets it. Why don't you?

      Your campaign is ridiculous and you should be ashamed of yourself for even thinking that it was okay to make fun of people with disabilities.. you are just big grown up bullies!

      My grandmother owns a residential treatment center for handicapped women. I grew up thinking I had over 30 aunts and never realized these women were different until I was in junior high. They may be different, but they are angels on earth. I won't stand by and watch them be degraded as second class citizens because their bodies and minds don't work the way most people's do.

      My brother has special needs. He is a human being with feelings. He deserves to be treated just as everyone else. Just because it is popular doesn't make it right.
