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?

source is Reuters employee.

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 .

agreed, this just really hits me (I'm a Pedi RN and a Pedi NP student).

Aw, congrats and good luck. My patho instructor in nursing school is a NP, and she basically knows as much as a doctor would know. Basically cause NPs are doctors but without the title.

But something like this is just painful especially knowing it could possibly happen again elsewhere, and no one really knows or cares :/
