Three Atlanta radio hosts were fired for making insensitive remarks about Steve Gleason, a former NFL player who is now confined to a wheelchair and battling ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Gleason has lost most of his motor skills and is only able to communicate with his eyes. The hosts told jokes that ridiculed the disease, and suggested that he should kill himself.
