'Kyle and Jackie O Show' producer reprimanded over vulgar blog

By
The Kyle and Jackie O Show has been faced with more controversy after a vulgar blog written by its talent producer Bruno Bouchet.

The Aussie radio programme, presented by Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O, recently lost many of its sponsors after Sandilands launched an aggressive tirade against a female journalist, labelling her a "fat slag" and threatening to "hunt her down".

According to Crikey, Bouchet's blog brunolovesboobs.org featured a photograph of a man wearing a sanitary towel and racist phrases about President Barack Obama, but has since been removed after he was reprimanded by Austereo bosses.

Bouchet's Twitter site has also caused controversy after he allegedly wrote that he planned on "going back to [his] house to spend time with [his] right hand".

A spokesperson from Austereo told The Daily Telegraph: "Basically we have asked him to take [both accounts] down and we have reiterated our social media policy to him."

The Kyle and Jackie O Show was first hit by controversy when Sandilands and Jackie O grilled a teenage rape victim about her sex life live on air. Sandilands later ranted about celebrities such as Rove McManus and Megan Gale and made racist comments during his show.

An investigation has been launched into Sandilands's on-air behaviour and a verdict will reportedly be announced this week.
