KDWB Apologizes For Hmong Parody Song

A parody to a rock song on the KDWB radio station has them apologizing after it joked about Hmong families, the Star Tribune said.

The song was performed by morning show producer Steve-O Latart, according to Fox 9. The Hmong community can't believe what was said in the song.

The lyrics went along to the tune of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven", according to the Star Tribune. The parody talked about "Hmong families crowding into homes and girls getting pregnant early and often," as a joke.

According to Fox 9, KDWB sent out an apology on Facebook saying that even though they got positive feedback from some Hmong listeners, they apologize to people who took it offensively. They said it was part of a new comedy series.
