On Monday, Felipe appeared on ESPN’s "Outside the Lines" and referred to Krueger as a "messenger of Satan." In response, KNBR’s morning show aired snippets of Alou's Satan comments and parodied it with references to the Satan on "South Park." An interesting reference considering Satan is mainly depicted as wracked with inner turmoil due to a dysfunctional relationship with his boyfriend Saddam Hussein.
In firing Krueger, Agnew, and Rhein, KNBR issued a statement saying that their jokes "demonstrated an utter lack of regard for the sensitivity of the issues involved and a premeditated intent to ridicule Felipe Alou's commentary." In other words, if you're trying to appear all contrite and apologetic over an offensive comment, don't make light of the person you've offended.
