KIISFM hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O Henderson were accused of ”advertising the dark web” by angry listeners. It is not a usual thing to be criticized live on a radio show, however, the Wednesday (UK) morning show was a surprising exception for the host pair.
At their Wednesday show, Kyle and Jackie were discussing the topic of the dark web. They allowed their listeners to share their story, including buying drugs from dark net marketplaces, when one of their listeners, Penelope, ”unleashed her fury” on them.
”I’m so disgusted, honestly,”’ she yelled accusing them of being irresponsible, especially in the case of young people. She continued:
”You shouldn’t be talking about things like this… Jackie, you’re a mother… You should not be promoting it.”
Penelope admitted the fact that she had never heard of the dark web until the morning show on KIISFM.
During the conversation, both Kyle and Jackie argued with the angry mother they weren’t advertising the dark web, according to the hosts, they were only having an honest and frank discussion about the topic.
Penelope was not the only one who criticized the topic. The morning show resulted in several listeners agreeing with the woman and posting their opinions on Twitter.
