“You’re a piece of shit”: Kyle Sandilands lays into Ray Hadley for his Intern Pete comments
Kyle Sandilands took aim at Ray Hadley on KIIS 106.5 this morning, following Intern Pete’s on-air apology for the controversy his comments at former Australian cricket captain Steve Smith‘s press conference last week have caused.
Speaking on the Kyle and Jackie O show, Pete apologised for the saga that transpired after he asked Smith a bizarre question about Married At First Sight during the conference.
“I would like to apologise to Steve, i do feel for the guy and I do think that my timing definitely wasn’t right on that, so I am truly sorry to Steve.”
Jackie then addressed the vitriolic nature of social media, and spoke passionately about the irony that Pete is getting no forgiveness himself.
Kyle seemed genuinely furious about how out-of-proportion the whole incident had become, especially by people in the media including the likes of 2GB’s Ray Hadley.
“Ray is a pretend person,” said Kyle. “He’s got no idea about anything he says.”
“You’re a piece of shit,” said Kyle, addressing Hadley, for the way he recently called out Pete live on air.
Kyle and Jackie O also denied having sent Pete to the conference.
In the wake of the stunt, Intern Pete received significant hate online, from both the public and network personalities – and has seen Cricket Australia pull all of its advertising from the station, which Kyle this morning said he could “care less” about.
A spokesperson for ARN last week said that Pete’s question for Smith was “framed for those who don’t follow cricket” and that all he was doing was trying “to inject some warmth to what was a difficult situation.”
