RTE DJ calls for lyrics of Fairytale of New York to be censored


Following the decision of some Radio outlets to stop playing ‘Baby its cold outside’ this Christmas, RTE DJ Eoghan McDermott has called on the National Broadcaster to censor the lyrics of The Pogues classic.

As usual to every Christmas, Fairytale of New York will be played constantly but McDermott stated that there are some members of the RTE Staff who are offended by the lyrics ‘you scumbag you maggot, you cheap lousy Faggot’ and feel they should be censored.
