10 Fired over Wii Death
The radio station responsible for the death of Jennifer Strange – after she competed in their “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest and then died of water intoxication – has fired 10 staff members over the incident.
Included were a number of DJs:
In an online recording of the show, the DJs can be heard making comments joking about people dying from water intoxication, even discussing a case in Northern California two years ago in which student Matthew Carrington, 21, died after drinking too much water during a fraternity pledge.
One of the DJs even admitted they maybe should have done some research before the contest.
Gee whiz, ya think?
