A radio interview today to promote Outback Wildlife Rescue descended into name-calling today, as Ernie Dingo called Kyle Sandilands “a commercial wanker.”
Sandilands, on his 2DAY.FM show with Jackie O, retorted by saying, “what a c**khead, you turned out to be… get out of here, I’m not interested.”
Dingo, who was a guest to promote his Seven Network show, was unimpressed with an audio grab during his introduction that said, “a dingo’s got my baby.”
He said he was there to promote the show and its caring of animals, and criticised Sandilands saying, “Basically, I think Kyle you’re a bit over the top, mate.”
“I don’t think you’ve cared for an animal in your life, mate.”
“Like your promo you put on, that ‘A dingo took my baby’ – that’s character assassination as far as I’m concerned towards me.
“Your game is to sensationalise things and you’re just basically a commercial wanker.”
Sandilands, who said he never believed a dingo was responsible for the Azaria Chamberlain disappearance, said he didn’t edit the audio.
“You know better than that mate,” said Sandilands.
The interview ended abruptly thereafter.
