The 14-year-old West Virginia-based radio host who declared on a recent show that President Obama "is making kids gay" has been deemed "offensive," and taken off the air, by a second internet media outlet.

On Friday, Spreaker, a free audio platform that hosts radio shows, pulled the Caiden Cowger Program, replacing the page with a note that now reads "Spreaker has deleted this show due to offensive contents."

Cowger hosts a twice-weekly show. Last month, he declared on a show that being homosexual was a "perverted belief, it's immoral and not natural." As the Huffington Post previously noted, Cowger mentioned that he was previously friends with some kids who later came out of the closet. "They were not homosexuals [then]...they just decided all of a sudden, 'I think I'm going to be gay,'" Then he concluded, "I'm going to tell you this, guys: President Obama...Vice President Biden...is making kids gay!"

According to website Zimbio, Youtube deemed the video, titled, "Obama is making kids gay" hate speech and removed it from the site. But on Cowger's website, he claimed his YouTube account was hacked and then closed and Cowger has since launched a new YouTube channel.

Rhonda Mangus, the mother of bullied gay teen Michael Mangus, led the charge to remove Cowger's program from Spreaker. Under the Terms of Service on Spreaker's website, the site says user submissions to the site must not be "unlawful, defamatory, libellous, slanderous, threatening, pornographic, obscene, vulgar, harassing, harmful, hateful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive or is otherwise inappropriate."

that I love it when the type of people who say companies should be able to do whatever the hell they want, are also the same people who get angry when their hateful opinions get them fired?

Irony at it finest.
