Lawmaker Blasts ‘Lex And Terry’ Radio Show For Mocking Disabilities
A Florida lawmaker is calling on the University of Florida to discontinue broadcasting a nationally syndicated radio show which he says pokes fun at people with disabilities.
The show, “Lex and Terry,” includes a segment with a man who has an intellectual disability and three other individuals pretending to have similar disabilities. Callers are asked to determine which person actually has the disability.
