Radio DJ Matt Siegel storms off air when told he cannot joke about Demi Lovato being non-binary

‘Today I was anti-wokeness and I can’t do that’: Radio DJ Matt Siegel storms off air when told he cannot joke about Demi Lovato coming out as non-binary

A radio DJ has stormed off air after being told he was not allowed to make a joke about pop singer Demi Lovato coming out as non-binary. 

Demi, 28, shared the news with their fans in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, adding that they will be changing pronouns to they/them – which made US radio host Matt Siegel storm off live on-air. 

Sigel, 71, the host of the Matty in the Morning Show in Massachusetts on KISS 108, made lengthy speech the same as Lovato’s news, claiming his boss told him not to make fun about the singer’s non-binary admission.

The leaked audio of the DJ’s rant has since gone viral, where said: ‘Today I was anti-wokeness and I can’t do that, so basically, what I’m told is, I can talk about light, funny things… but I can’t do what I really want to do, which is just be a funny comic and tell it like it is.’

The Sorry Not Sorry singer identifies as pansexual, and said that they don’t want to be seen as an ‘expert or spokesperson,’ and has ‘opened up another level of vulnerability’ by sharing the news with their fans.
