WWL radio host Seth Dunlap fired amid NOPD extortion investigation A WWL radio host accused of sending a homophobic tweet aimed at himself from the stations Twitter account has been fired. NEW ORLEANS A WWL radio host accused of sending a homophobic tweet aimed at himself from the stations Twitter account has been fired.
Seth Dunlaps lawyer said Saturday that the station asked him to resign last week and he refused, maintaining his innocence. According to Dunlaps lawyer, the station fired him two days ago.
The NOPD is looking into the allegations that the homophobic tweet sent from the stations Twitter account was sent by Dunlap as a way to extort money, according to lawyers for WWL radio.
Dunlap is openly gay and has written and talked about being a gay man covering professional sports.
The tweet was immediately deleted, but not before thousands of followers took screen grabs and shared them, adding their shocked and angry reactions.
According to the police report filed by WWL radio, the station claims that Dunlap threatened them, and demanded more than $1.8 million in compensation in a meeting with his legal team and Entercoms legal team Sept 10.
Dunlap asked Entercoms legal team how much money they would pay him before he went scorched earth about the incident, according to the police report.
Entercom did not offer Dunlap any money, so his legal team asked for the $1.8 million payment, according to the report.
WWL radio claims in the police report that a digital forensic expert concluded that the homophobic slur was sent from Dunlaps cellphone.
Dunlap's lawyer said her client voluntarily submitted to a polygraph test, which has a 95 percent accuracy rate.
The NOPD police report says the case is being investigated as possible extortion, which is a crime punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
So another fake hate crime?
“sent from Dunlaps cellphone”
A real genius. At least claim a MAGA hat wearing redneck stole the phone and used it.
Seth “Jussie” Dunlap.
Yet another high profile FAKE hate crime. Hoax after hoax after hoax after hoax.
Wow the world has turned upside down. Used to be the blowmos got blackmailed for being a degenerate. Now the blowmos are blackmailing everyone else for not being degenrates!
“Dunlap is openly gay and has written and talked about being a gay man covering professional sports.”
‘The pitcher is a great ball handler’
In better days WWL broadcast Fats Domino
and his local cronies languid sound which after
it reached Jamaica helped spawn ska and reggae
It does not work well on a person that has no conscience and certainly will not detect a lie when the liar believes it himself.
Must be pretty tough being gay there when even you attack yourself for that lifestyle.
What makes this moron think that anyone wants to hear about sports from a gay mans point of view? Just report sports dumbass, and keep you bigoted anti-Christian viewpoints to yourself. Hope they throw the book at him!
Such a victim
And of course, hypocrisy in stereotyping and hating others
The equivalent of a Bug Chaser
Say goodnight and goodbye.
Being charged with extortion of yourself is a pretty funny thing to hear!
Another indication of just how very many on the left are sociopaths.
Think Sheriff Bart in Blazing Saddles.
