Well this is just odd!
It seems 2DayFM, the Australian radio station that suspended DJs Michael Christian and Mel Greig for their Kate Middleton hospital prank, has a history of orchestrating dangerous hoaxes!
Back in 2009 another program on the station called the Kyle and Jackie O Show paid a listener $1000 to call her sister and try and make her believe that their mother had been horribly injured and needed medical assistance…
Well, the sister DID call authorities and paramedics rushed to the scene, where they obviously found the mother to be perfectly fine.
Police even ended up launching an investigation into the prank!
THEN later on in 2009, the same 2dayFM radio show thought it would be funny to have a teenager take a lie detector test in front of her mother while being asked about sex…
And girl ended up revealing she had been raped at age 12!
This ALSO led to an investigation and the DJs got a week suspension.
Now, obviously tricks and hoaxes are aired on radio stations across the globe on a daily bases, but wouldn't a station which has had issues with scandalous pranks in the past have known better than to OK the Kate Middleton hospital call?
Obviously anything that dupes the English Royal family AND that deals with someone's HEALTH has disaster written all over it!
