Larry Asego upsets single mums with rash tweet

Radio presenter Larry Asego was on Tuesday morning under fire over a tweet that was perceived to blame children raised by single mothers for increased cases of arson in schools

The Classic FM presenter had, during the morning show, posed a question on Twitter on whether children raised by single mothers should be blamed for increase of arson in schools.

The framing of the question caused a social media storm with users accusing him of being utterly disrespectful.

A remorseful Larry quickly deleted the tweet and apologized, but not before users shared screenshots of his statement.

His apologies and clarification, that the statement was not the basis of the discussion in the popular breakfast show, fell on deaf ears.

Larry, who is sitting in for Maina Kageni who has taken a break to celebrate his birthday, pleaded with users to forgive him for the erroneous tweet.

Larry’s boss, Caroline Mutoko, came to his defense stating that he had erred and had apologized for it.

Larry was quick to accept full responsibility for the tweet.
