Katrina Taylor, aka Trina, is a co-host for the T&T Morning show on 99Jamz here in South Florida. Trina has taken it upon herself to condemn the residents of Miami who participated in the recent protests, live on air, in the most HEINOUS of ways.
Not only did she lump protestors and the handful of looters together, Ms. Taylor took it upon herself to refer to protestors, who were majority Black and people of color, as “ANIMALS running the streets.” She continues on by:
- Valuing her “friends” store over the reason and importance of the protests
- Comparing police brutality and racially enticed murders to someone being killed in a car accident or killed by someone of their own race/community
- Stating she’s not afraid of police pulling her over because she carries her license, registration and insurance — Insinuating that having these documents will protect her from police brutality despite the numerous police involved murders where victims DID have these items present
It is with great disgust that, I, and many other Black Miami natives have to hear such derogatory and disrespectful speech from someone who has only seen success because of OUR support. To make matters worse, Trina made such erroneous statements on a radio station that has a majority BLACK audience after we’ve endured her obnoxious attitude and middle school reading level for months.
Not only did she let such ignorant and grotesque statements leave her mouth, she stood firm on them as her co-hosts tried to remind her to watch her words. Clearly, she meant what she said, so an apology will NOT do. Trina needs to be removed from this radio show IMMEDIATELY — it is the only way 99Jamz/Cox Media Group can make it up to its listeners.
Please sign this petition to support having Trina removed from the T&T Morning Show. As Trina said, “today is the today.” Today is the today she will regret being an uneducated bafoon with the audacity to mock and embarrass the very community that has filled the pockets she sits on.
