DJs host 'Fifty Shades' burning party

July 19, 2012 at 2:34 PM

CLEVELAND, July 19 (UPI) -- A pair of Ohio DJs who held a book burning for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy said they were "giving voice to people who think it's a piece of garbage."

Chad Zumock and Alan Cox, DJs for WMMS-FM, Cleveland, said they received a lot of calls from fans about how "horrible" the book series by E.L. James is, so they decided to host a book-burning party at Panini's in Westlake during their afternoon drive time show Wednesday, WJW-TV, Cleveland, reported Thursday.

"This is giving voice to people who think it's a piece of garbage," Cox said.

Zumock said the books contributed to a friend's divorce.

"Men can't live up to this book, and it becomes an issue," Zumock said. "They're more interested in this and go to bed alone."

WKYC-TV, Cleveland, said at least one female fan used a fire extinguisher in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue the novels.
