Radio DJ Hurls Gay Slurs


Morning show host Dan "Elvis" Lay on San Francisco's KREV 92.7 radio station allegedly used antigay slurs on Monday during a prank phone call.

Lay, host of the "Dog House Morning Show," accused a man at random of having stolen an NFL team flag from his car. The target defended himself, claiming he did not steal the flag and does not watch football. Lay proceeded to berate the caller, according to the Bay Area NBC affiliate, saying, "What kind of man doesn't watch football? What are you, a [censored by the station]?"

After the caller hung up on the DJ, Lay dialed the man again. After a woman picked up the phone, Lay asked, "Where is that butt sniffer I was just talking to?"

KREV 92.7 was known as a gay-friendly dance station before coming under new ownership in September. Following the buyout, most of the original staff and talent were replaced, reports website SFist.

This is not the first time the "Dog House Morning Show," which is based in Las Vegas, has been accused of using antigay slurs.

In 2007, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation criticized Lay and cohost Jeff Vandergrift for calling a guest a "pansy" and a "faggot" after he questioned the quality of the station.
