Two New York area radio hosts have apologized for talking on-air about a note they fabricated from a fictitious parent chastising a supposed same-sex couple over their child's birthday invite, and the broadcasters admitted they kept on with the lie even after it took on a "life of its own," according to Reuters.
Steve Harper and Leeana Karlson of Long Island pop music station WKJY, also known as K-98.3, posted the apology on Friday on the station's website.
"This story was, in fact, totally fictitious, and created by the two of us," Harper and Karlson wrote in the post. "This was done without the knowledge of K-98.3 management or ownership."
