South Carolina’s Sunny 107.9 WFBS aired the rap song containing the phrase “F*** you Donald Trump!” on Monday night.
The broadcaster is one of a number of radio stations in the US that have reported similar incidents since the inauguration of the 45th president.
Bosses at the station in Salem have since jumped to defend the airing of expletive song, insisting it was the work of hackers who interfered with the radio signal.

I had to turn the radio station completely off to stop the song
Jeff Bright, station manager
Manager Jeff Bright explained the community radio station had to be taken off-air in order to halt the vulgar lyrics that had been running for about 20 minutes.
“I had to turn the radio station completely off to stop the song,” he told WYFF.
He explained at first listeners were outraged by what they had heard – but after he took to the airwaves to apologise they became more understanding.
“They’ve been pretty positive, they understand that this was not our fault, we did not have any control over this,” he said.

The airing of the rap song, released by YG & Nipsey Hussle during the US election campaign, was also condemned by the radio station’s president Frank Patterson.
Writing on Facebook, he said: “Our internet has been hacked at our transmitter site and the station has played anti-Trump song. This is not our broadcast. We at WFBS do not take political views.

"We may be on or off the air while fixing, this is happening all over the country.
"Again we hold our political views to ourselves in these statements and or songs made on the air are not that of WFBS. We have captured the IP address and that will be forwarded to the government authorities."

Mr Patterson added another attempt to hack the radio station had failed with the IP addresses traced back to Russia and Taiwan.
A number of broadcast companies in Seattle, Louisville and San Angelo, Texas have reported similar incidents in recent weeks, according to the Associated Press.
In another case, a video featuring the song reportedly appeared on a cable television provider in Mooresville, North Carolina.
