What started out as an innocent question turned into so much more!
Ch-ch-check it out
The world was supposed to watch with excited anticipation as Kate Middleton's oven-crumpet grew big inside her belly, but, instead, millions of hearts are simultaneously breaking around the globe!
Her pregnancy is marred in tribulation and her nurse Jacintha Saldanha, a wife and mother of two, is dead.
The Royal's nurse killed herself after being publicly humiliated by a radio talk-show prank and everyone is eager to share their opinions and, in some cases, cast blame.
From the DJs who might now feel guilty after making the phone call, and Jacintha's widowed husband and motherless children, to Prince William and especially the Duchess of Cambridge who must be experiencing a bundle of raw and conflicting emotions right now — this is an undeniably sad situation for everyone involved.
Many are directing their outrage toward Australian DJs Mel Greig (@MelGreigHot30) and Michael Christian (@mContheradio), both of whom already deleted their Twitter accounts
derp (@BooKhaki) — "I hope Mel Greig and Michael Christian lose their jobs."
Miss Sam Bucca ☃ x (@suzannne_x) — "Awful news about the receptionist committing suicide.. still gloating about your “amazing prank” now?? @mContheradio @MelGreigHot30?"
Ryan Williams (@razza699) — "I hope the nurses family take @MelGreigHot30 and @mcontheradio for all they have"
LFC Fans Corner (@LFCFansCorner)– "Are you two still laughing about your ‘amazing’ prank in the hospital!? @melgreighot30 @mcontheradio you disgust me."
Chris H (@Northern_Munky) — "Say, @MelGreigHot30 @MContheradio – That nurse you pranked in London is dead. Hang your heads. You should be banned from broadcasting."
Michael (twcau) (@twcau) — "Dear @2DayFMSydney, you need to sack Mel Greig, Michael Christian & their producers. Ill conceived prank has lead to suicide. #unforgivable"
Sara (@Sara_156) — "I hope you’re happy with yourselves @MContheradio and @MelGreigHot30 Royal prank my arse #RIP"
Harminder Boughan (@Minz_B) — "Receptionist who was duped by @MelGreigHot30 @MContheradio prank call dies in suspected suicide. Hope the pair of you feel like sh*t! #Scum"
Lewis Roman (@lewisroman) — "Hope the Australian radio DJs Mel Greig & Michael Christian that caused kate middletons hospital secretary to commit suicide burn in hell."
While we understand why everyone is so passionately on edge, some of these vitriolic tweets CLEARLY go way, way too far.
Jacintha devoted her life to helping the sick, we doubt she would want anyone to use her tragedy to harm others!
