Tihs comes after he made some very controversial remarks about autistic children.

Parents of children with autism came together over the weekend outside of the KNEW radio station office in San Francisco on Sunday.

Both KNEW and Talk Radio Network have decided to this point to not fire Savage, keeping his syndicated show on the air.

Savage made headlines not too long ago by stating that autism was over-diagnosed, and blamed parents.

He talks about autistic children, using words such as “moron” and “idiot.”

Since then, he has supported his remarks and has not apologized or backed down to anyone.

This comes as advertisers continue to pull out of his show one by one.
