Well, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Australian DJs who pranked a hospital nurse into giving details of the Duchess of Cambridge’s health during her stay in hospital recently. The thing went global with Conan O’Brien giving it some airtime and the 2 DJs themselves boasting about it incessantly on Twitter under the hashtag #royalprank.
What the DJs will wake up to this morning though is the news that the nurse they got to transfer the call through to the ward, who was undoubtedly fearing for her
job entire career, has committed suicide. I don’t know if my countrymen know this, but patient data, particularly that of royalty is a very serious fucking business. The nurse was very rightly concerned over the events.
What I hope happens next is:
a) the DJs are sacked, and
b) the nurse has hoaxed the idiots back and is actually alive and well.
Sadly, neither of these will probably happen.
EDIT: As I sit here and type this, I am streaming 2Day FM and they are STILL promoting the prank and giggling about it.
EDIT2: And now @MContheradio appears to have followed Mel Greig and also deleted his Twitter account.
