Kate Middleton Nurse Suicide

Lexus Pulls Ads from Radio

Station Behind the Prank

EXCLUSIVE

Lexus Australia
has axed all of their advertising from 2DAYFM ... the radio station that allowed two DJs to prank call Kate Middleton's hospital ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke to a rep for Lexus AU ... who tells us the company has officially pulled the plug on their media campaign due to "the current situation​" -- specifically the suspected suicide of the nurse who answered the call.

We're told this isn't the first time Lexus AU has pulled ads from 2DAYFM. The car company pulled ads from the station last year as well following an incident with a different announcer.

This recent ad campaign (which began November 1) was the company's first with the station since then.

Read the below article on the DJ's and understand that it was NOT them who made this decision, understand that you need to look to your own past DJ's dating way back to when in the 1930's some radio station without prior warning broadcast a show called War of The Worlds that sent America into mass hysteria. Look at Howard Stern, and others who have been guilty of prank calls. Just stop and think.
