Australian DJs

Ducking for Cover

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."

Was it the nurse or the receptionist? Either way it's sad that this happened but I don't think the DJ's are to blame. If she killed herself over this she obviously had other issues.

What's wrong with the world. It was a joke. If the nurse kindled herself she had deeper lying issues. Radio talk show host play jokes all the time. There was no harm in what they did. Like usual the media blowing everything out of wack.

First and foremost the royals are nothing more than people... There I said it, but it's true and better yet, they're only royalty because one of their ancestors killed other peoples ancestors so he could live off of their blood, sweat and tears, literally. Secondly no sane, rational person takes their own life because they fell victim to a prank call. No matter what it's always sad when someone feels their only escape is suicide, but at least now whatever demons were haunting this woman are now gone and she's at peace.

For two so pleased with themselves over a juvenile prank they and their radio station are sure not keen on having them talk about it now.......Ironic that they cannot take calls so while many are saying no big deal it appears that it could be for them and those in charge there. Not familiar with the UK laws to know if any were broken in taking on the persona of another or even the recording of the conversation. So they may not be laughing for a very long time.

It started off as a funny joke. After the nurse took the bait, the DJ's were like Sarah Palin with a bat. At that point it became vile! Sad to hear about this woman's desperation from her respect for what she thought was royalty. I hope blood pours from the anuses of both DJ's for the next month.

This woman killed herself because of the way she was treated AFTER the prank. Not from the prank itself. If the people in the UK had been supportive and laughed it off and said, "Don't worry....no harm done. Just be more careful in the future." Then she would probably still be alive.
But instead she was attacked by an unforgiving lynch mob and she was clearly a very sensitive person who couldn't handle it.

Wether she was unstable mentally or not, the root cause of her suicide was due to this 'joke call'. Ha Ha, very funny. According to the hospital this lady was an exceptionally caring and caring nurse. Due to the actions of these 'hilarious' dj's, she felt so distraught and upset, that her fragile mind couldn't cope. Like it or not, no hoax call, no suicide. Simple

I am a registered nurse and let me tell you , if you screw up they nail you to the wall. You get written up and shunned. People talk behind your back.You get threatened with lawsuits and loss of your nursing license. It doesn't even have to be for something major. So a British nurse screwing up the privacy of the royal family must have been made into mince meat. I don't fault the DJ's at all. It was a prank call and the hospital is probably to blame.Plus the nurse had her own issues.
