I don't want to seem harsh, but honestly I think that as shitty as this prank was it didn't deserve the negative press the suicide has given it. Please don't get me wrong, it was a total asshole move, but if something as innocent as a simple radio prank could get a person to commit suicide, then they weren't stable in the first place.

I agree that although it would seem the prank call contributed to the suicide, it was just a prank call, albeit on - what turned out to be - a pretty big scale, however the DJ's aren't in control of people's emotions, although it was obvious a backlash like this would happen, when the 'Royals' are involved in any 'incident' it tends to garner certain individuals and reactions from the media, and because of the kind of things the spokespeople for the Royals say, there is only a few ways 'incidents' like this tend to go.

I don't blame the DJ's, but they committed a crime and contributed to the death of the nurse, innocent beginnings or not.

I think there are radio protocols, both in Australia and the UK, which state that it is illegal to unwittingly record someone's voice and broadcast it on air without their prior consent. Or something like that. I'm too busy to do the research.

I don't blame the DJs, but my heart does go out to the nurse. Who knows what she was experiencing beforehand, in all walks of her life. And then to go through being duped on a royal scale, the intense public ridicule that followed and to face the prospect of losing her job, her livelihood and her means to support her family must have all been too much.

I get it, it was a joke. But you never can be quite sure of the mental state of the target of said joke, and how they will react - which is why "respect" policies are now omnipresent in all organisations of the western world, hanging in every boardroom and scrolling across every screensaver on every computer in every office cubicle. Someone should be held accountable, and at least cop a rap on the knuckles. And, because it is Austereo, who pollute the Australian airwaves by broadcasting the most crass and fatuous bogan bilge known to mankind, I'd love to see the company go down in flames. Not that that's ever going to happen.

I also think it is high time we realise that comedy doesn't always have to come at someone else's expense. Laughter isn't always slaughter without the S.

Ive heard all about this story since I live in the UK and it makes so angry that those fucking australian dj's have caused that poor nurse to take her own life because of their stupidity of doing that prank phone call. Well from watching the news today those dj's have been took off air and theres an investigation into this now I hope to god those dj's get sued for every penny for causing this death the poor family of that nurse must be going through hell

I think this is one of the weirdest stories ever. And not really because of the parties involved. But the third parties. Media & people buying into it being the fault of the DJs. People do stuff like that every day. On the same scale? Not so much. Its a one in a billion thing that someone actually commited suicide within a week of the result of a prank.. And to blame them, you have to be very narrow minded, or just very guillible. Baaaaaaa. Baaaaaa.

As well as that, I'm fairly sure it's a crime to obtain personal information through deception(may just be to do with the royals), or at least something to that extent.

They're obviously joking, the royal family are irrelevant.

God damn they are annoying though, William and Kate apparently have to be in the news every other day. Don't even know why she was in hospital for morning sickness.
