Bruno's side of the story

Bruno Bouchet, the ex-guest and talent producer on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, has written a guest post on Mumbrella explaining his side of the saga that has been the last few days.

He made news across the weekend for posting a series of insensitive comments about the Colorado shooting on Friday night. Bruno was then relieved of his position at 2DayFM yesterday.

SCA's Sydney boss Jeremy Simpson said…

"Southern Cross Austereo has a strict social media policy that all staff must adhere to, and Bruno's activity on Twitter was in breach of this policy. It is for this reason that Bruno's employment has been terminated, effective immediately.”

Bouchet's Twitter and Facebook accounts have also been disabled.

In a statement to Mumbrella, Bouchet said…

"What I said was really f***ed up. There's no getting around that. At the time I didn't realise how serious it was and I had had a few drinks. I have no excuse. I'm so mad at myself. I'm humiliated and I'm embarrassed. It was a dick move. I can't blame Southern Cross Austereo - they had no other choice. I really do want to apologise. It was reprehensible."

In his guest post, Bruno says…

"Given that I was so public with my tweets on Friday night, it’s only fair that I be public in expressing my heartfelt apology for what I did. I owe a lot of people an explanation for what I wrote, so I hope that the following paragraphs will shed some light on one of my life’s biggest regret. By the way, absolutely nothing from my explanation should be misinterpreted as me trying to excuse myself or weasel out of what I’ve done – I’m 100 per cent responsible for where I am now."

“I’m quite certain that 99 per cent of people reading this are far and beyond intellectually superior to me and would never throw their careers away like I have. But if you are part of this one per cent – please be careful with what you post online – an entire career can be killed in 140-characters or less.”
