Todd Lynn you can call me at [***-***-****] Todd Lynn Dude I as all of us are very sorry about the song but we are not racsist we made a very bad mistake Todd Lynn I understand were you are coming from but trust me no one onthe show is a racsist Jay Smooth but it wasn't a mistake when you sang it and recorded it, it wasn't a mistake when you played it on the air, it wasn't a mistake when you played the next day, and then the next day, and the next.. Todd Lynn That was the Mistake , how many time in your life have you fucked up Todd Lynn Dude lets have a hate typing open diolouge on the phone Jay Smooth if you are willing to have me tape it and put it on the website Todd Lynn How can i trust A guy thats been killing me and I do mean killing me all over the world ,the reason most of this shit got to the point it is is because everbody is not informed on what happened that day Jay Smooth so what is the information they dont have.. Todd Lynn we all are very sorry for the song! very poor tastse and bad judgement but none of us are bigots Jay Smooth what was your part in making the song? whose idea was it? Todd Lynn What I will tell you is Miss Jones had Nothing to do with the writing are producing of the song are the voicing. she works from home and has been doing that for several months Jay Smooth who wrote and produced it? Todd Lynn Not Miss Jones Jay Smooth does she not speak english? did she not hear the lyrics when she played it, for four days in a row? Todd Lynn your way off base with the race shit, Mistake Dude Bad mistake And we are all very sorry. dont make poor judgement into race thing just by seeing what you have organnized i know you are smarter than that Jay Smooth So you don't believe that it is racist to call people chinks? And to say I'm gonna shoot some asians"? Todd Lynn This was not even a company thing, It was a badd fuckup that we apologized for. Jay Smooth Actually you have not apologized Todd Lynn my comments were taken out of context Jay Smooth How can they be taken out of context when we have it all on tape?
