A Missouri radio host attacked his co-host in an insane and sexist off-air rant, calling her a poor mother and expressing sympathy for her children.
According to recordings acquired by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Fox 2 news anchor Vic Faust attacked co-host Crystal Cooper during an expletive-filled tirade on her looks and intelligence. According to reports, the remarks were made on the hard-rock station KFNS on September 13 during a commercial break.
“Your children have a (expletive) awful mother. They deserve better, Faust said.
Cooper’s sole response in his disbelief was “Wow, wow.”
Cooper was also harshly chastised by Faust,
“You’re nothing, you’re trash,”
The crude verbal abuse apparently stems from Cooper poking fun at Faust over his problems with his computer while the pair were on-air, according to the newspaper.
Off-air, Faust warned Cooper not to return to the show.
“If you come back, I’m going to be in your (expletive) every (expletive) day,”
Cooper defended herself throughout the ugly incident, telling Faust to “grow up” repeatedly.
Faust confirmed the off-air remarks to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He also claimed there was “background” to the incident, but did not explain further.
The newspaper said it received the damning audio clip Friday anonymously.
Cooper apparently left the show the same day the endless insults were hurled at her, according to the Post-Dispatch.
He’s been with the television station for seven years, but was not on air Monday or Tuesday, the newspaper reported.
