Petition Closed

-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.
