DJ’s Speak Out After Getting Fired for Hoax

The two Australian D-J’s, who are blamed for the suicide of a nurse at Kate Middleton’s hospital, say they’re devastated.  Both say it was just a prank when they called the hospital, pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.  The nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, dispatched them to a nurse who shared details about the Duchess’s condition.  Saldanha later committed suicide.

“There’s not a minute that goes by that we don’t think about the family and what they must be going through. And the thought that we may have played a part in that is gut wrenching,” Mel Grieg said to an Australian TV station during the D-J’s first interview.

William-Kate-expectingDisc Jockey Michael Christian said they never expected anyone to take them seriously. “The joke 100 percent was on us. The idea was never, ‘Let’s call up and get through to Kate,’ or ‘Let’s speak to a nurse.’ The joke was our accents are horrible, they don’t sound anything like who they’re intended to be.”

The D-J’s show has been terminated.  Meanwhile, an autopsy for Saladanha is scheduled for this week.
