BILLINGS — Two groups of demonstrators supporting and opposing local DJ Paul Mushaben met Saturday in front of the downtown building that houses radio station KCTR.
Radio station officials suspended Mushaben indefinitely last month after he posted what some call controversial comments on the station’s website. Mushaben, one-half of the popular morning team “The Breakfast Flakes,” suggested in his post that teams of Native Americans should participate in separate basketball tournaments.
Supporters say the suspension violates Mushaben’s free speech rights. Opponents say his comments were racist and should not be acceptable for online radio station content.
