Kyle under new investigation

ACMA has launched an investigation into comments made by Kyle Sandilands on 2Day FM about a child born with disabilities in Pakistan.

Sandilands referred to the child, who was born with additional limbs, as a 'spider baby'. Hear the 2Day audio below;

However, there is no investigation into Fitzy & Wippa who made similar comments about the story, including using production pieces, on Nova 969.

The reason for this is that no formal complaint has been made to ACMA about Nova, whereas there was regarding 2Day FM. You can hear the Nova audio below.

ACMA Spokesperson Emma Rossi said "I can confirm that we have opened an investigation".
 
Southern Cross Austereo have commented; “We are aware that ACMA is investigating these comments and we will submit our response as required. We do not believe there is any substance to the complaints.”
 
When you have listened to the audio pieces, leave a comment with your thoughts. Has Kyle stepped over the line? Was what Fitzy & Wippa said more, or less, offensive than Kyle? Is it a storm in a teacup?
