Australian DJs who pranked nurse taken off the air

Mods: this seemed to post w/o problem to my personal journal, not sure where formatting error is?

More from TMZ:

The two Australian DJs at the center of the Kate Middleton hospital prank have gone RADIO SILENT since news broke that the nurse at the hospital committed suicide ... TMZ has learned.

The DJs are under serious fire after pulling off a stunt where they pretended to be the Queen of England (fake voice and all) and duped nurse Jacintha Saldanha into connecting them to the people treating Middleton, who revealed details about Kate's condition.

Saldanha's body was discovered early this morning ... and cops believe it's an obvious suicide.

TMZ called the Australian radio station where the DJs work ... and were told by the executive producer that the DJs will NOT be taking any calls, period.


The E.P. explained ... the DJs have been "ordered" not to speak to the media. It's unclear who issued the order.

The producer added, "I advise you to stop trying to call them."

I do not at all feel any remorse for those DJs losing their jobs. They ought to be fired, and not just for this .

Well they said they thought they would be immediately be hung up on.. which I would have figured too. And I mean morning radio hosts do prank calls ALL the time.

Yeah, I can see where they assumed the whole joke would be about no one believing they were really the Queen and Prince Charles. I can see setting up the prank call, but at the point that it became obvious that the people at the hospital did believe, they should have ended it.

Asking for info about her condition crossed the boundary and they should have known that.

They should have called the palace or some pizza place or something. Not a hospital, if they were going to just do a quote unquote dumb prank.
