Radio Host Ebro Admits He Made ‘Terrible Joke’ By calling African Names “Ghetto” in Resurfaced Interview: Watch

Ebro is catching all the flak in good faith after folks unearthed an old interview of him, he co-host Peter Rosenberg, and Tinashe back in 2013, in which he dismissed African names as “ghetto.”

From the clip, Tinashe who was 20-year-old at that time told him that her last name was her last name, Kachingwe, and the radio host went to speak about the colour of her skin.

In the clip, Ebro asks if they can “point out how light-skinned she is with a ghetto-ass name.” Rosenberg then tells him the name isn’t “ghetto,” to which Ebro says “sometimes these ghetto names are actually African.”

As Tinashe tries to shut things down, Ebro calls her “young yellow.”

Ebro has now apologised for this. “Yea this was a terrible joke, we were using the name skit for people to learn her origins,” Ebro wrote while quote-tweeting the clip. “Love Tinashe that’s my homey still.”

He went on to take accountability while noting that “explaining jokes that are offensive is a waste” and predicting that with “the many sexual and racial jokes I’ve made throughout the years, more venom I’m sure is coming.”
