Middleton Aussie DJ Pranksters Have History Of ‘Extreme Crank Yanking’

December 10, 2012

I know that there are people out there who absolutely love playing practical jokes and in some sick way they even seem to enjoy getting pranked. I am not a big fan of pranks, sure I did all that stuff when I was a kid but later on I realized there’s probably some bad karma attached to scaring the living daylights out of people for kicks.

The Australian DJs who pulled the prank on Kate Middleton’s nurse, yielding tragic results, end up having a history of extreme pranking.

Good old Harvey Levin over at TMZ is reporting,

There’s some serious hypocrisy at the Australian radio station that pulled the plug on the Kate Middleton pranksters — because the station has a history of setting up dangerous stunts … some purposely designed to cause panic and mayhem.

2DayFM’s “Kyle and Jackie O” show aired a segment called “Desperate Acts” back in 2009 … where a listener was given $1,000 to call her sister and convince her their mother was injured, bleeding, and in need of medical attention.

It worked … the sister called 911 and sent paramedics speeding to the mother, who was totally fine.

That hoax prompted a police investigation.

Later in 2009 … Kyle and Jackie O hooked up a teenager to a lie detector while her mother grilled her about her sex life. The stunt blew up in their faces when the girl suddenly revealed she had been raped when she was 12.

That segment led to another police investigation, and got the DJs a week-long suspension.

Additionally, 2DayFM has reportedly been on probation multiple times for violating Australia’s broadcast code.

Despite getting repeatedly slapped on the wrist for their stunts … 2DayFM honchos still signed off on Michael Christian and Mel Greig pulling the Kate prank.

2DayFM’s response to the nurse’s death has been that “no one could have predicted” the tragedy — arguably true — but they’ve also broadcast stunts where tragedy is not only foreseeable, but desired.

So, canceling the DJ’s show … hypocritical?

Honestly I don’t wish anything bad on these two, they seem like cool people. It’s just a tragedy 360.
