Sweet.  So I can get medical information under false pretenses on whoever I want?

That's on the dead nurse, not the DJs. You can ask - it is up to the medical staff not to give it out.

Despite the "all in good fun" guffawing that obnoxious radio DJs claim, you know these guys love screwing with people and causing harm.  Remember such gems as "War of the Roses" - the DJs call a married guy and tell him he's won roses he can send to anyone.  Dude sends them to his kid's babysitter, or whoever he's tongue puppeting, all while the wife is on the line, listening to the letch.  Is that supposed to be "all in good fun?"  Because that's going to fark some shiat up - and the DJs know it.  The win for them is breaking the couple up.  A total failure would be the guy sending the flowers to his wife.  They want destruction and mayhem for the laughs.

In that light, you've really got to hand it to these two DJs.  They deserve the crown of ultimate morning show gods.  They actually executed a prank that resulted in a married woman, mother of two, killing herself afterward.  I mean, how farking awesome is that?  With a phone call they were able to murder a woman by proxy and get away with it.  Say what you will about medical records, and morality, and whatever else - but you've got to pat these guys on the back.

I'm sure there was luck involved.  The woman who ended up stepping off of the toilet with the rope around her neck, to then claw and gag as life for her slowly faded black, she had to be sort of teetering already.  Maybe the marriage was rocky, the kids were unloving pains in the tits, or the old nursing career turned out to be professional ass wiper and vomit mopper.  Whatever - the DJs nailed her at the right moment and pushed her over the edge.

I don't want to sound like a dick, but bad-farking-ass.

The person who killed themselves was not the nurse giving the "information" but the one who transfered the call. No actual/useful medical information was given to the to the obvious pranksters.

Oh, I missed that then. I do not know why she felt she needed to kill herself (other than that the British take their royalty waaaaaaaaaay too seriously) but it's pretty obvious that there were serious mental issues at work beyond this. The DJs are monsterous dicks, yes. But to put the blame for her death on them isn't fair. If it wasn't the call, it would have been the person who flipped her off in traffic. Or her neighbor biatching about her dog, etc.

Ever notice how DJs laugh so *hard* at whatever it is they're doing?  I never laugh, nor has anyone I've asked.

Locally we have one morning show with a couple of guys called "Lex and Terry".  Not only are these guys HACKS, they're the worst kind.....Howard Stern wanna-be hacks.  Oh, and they love calling other DJs hacks.

I actually listened to them for a while, but I decided I'd had enough when one of them took a mic into the toilet and broadcasted himself taking a dump.

Stay classy, guys.

I'm thinkin' that committing suicide, while an absolutely horrendous act, is sure a whole hell of a lot better than taking a gun and shooting people.

Dr J Zoidberg: She killed herself because she was a moron


No, she killed herself because she was a lonely, fragile person who was working all the time (Basically living at work) away from her family and because she had a history of depression- but these jerks did help trigger it. It has to be pretty miserable waking up every day to headlines from the world media about how stupid you are not to be able to tell that the accents were fake- especially when English is your second language, and so detecting regional accents is probably difficult. And especially when your life is basically your job, and now you feel incompetent there too.

The DJs couldn't have predicted her suicide, and I understand that and don't think they should be charged. But this is EXACTLY why that type of prank is such a terrible idea. At the very least, you're holding someone up to public ridicule without their consent. Yes, someone less fragile wouldn't have killed themselves over this, but that's exactly the thing with this kind of prank- you have no idea who you're pulling it on, or what their life is like, or how they'll take it.

It was really cruel.

If she was so ashamed then she could have gone and apologized to Kate Middleton and other members of the royal family since she was staying at the hospital she worked at and they would have told her the same thing they told everybody else, that they didn't even care.

I picked up a rental car that didn't have an input for my phone and it was already tuned to a station that was playing a morning show like that. I was thinking about my trip itinerary and it took about 8 minutes for me to realize what I was listening to and that my brain had begun to leak out of my ear.

Which would have done precisely nothing about the fact that she was being totally raked over the coals in the press around the world. Very few people experience that, and I think casually dismissing what that would be like doesn't show much empathy for others.

Then again, neither does calling someone who committed suicide a "moron".

Raked over the coals? Nobody would have ever remembered her name if she hadn't decided to kill herself and this all would have been forgotten a week later. It's not like the pregnancy wasn't going to get out at some time or another

At the very least, even if there hadn't been any negative repercussions from their prank, they were taking up the time of the nurses at the hospital and taking them away from their real duties. Prank calls are obnoxious to begin with, but prank calls to a hospital, where people are trying to care for others as efficiently as possible?

They fully deserved to lose their jobs over it.

Not by the people she worked with- she'd still be dealing with embarrassment there. And yes, it would have blown over, but can you imagine reading hundreds of stories about what a fark up you are for doing your best to do your job?

Feeling like the butt of a joke is embarrassing in a best case scenario- feeling like the butt of a joke where the whole world is laughing at you when you're already sad, lonely and depressed? That's brutal.

Another nurse who probably had a very similar work schedule and working conditions went through the exact same situation as her and thought it was amusing.

Yes, prank calls are lame and unfunny but I don't blame the DJs because there was no way they could have known that the reaction she would have to a prank would be to kill herself. That's not a normal reaction to a prank.

I'm sure there was luck involved.  The woman who ended up stepping off of the toilet with the rope around her neck, to then claw and gag as life for her slowly faded black, she had to be sort of teetering already.  Maybe the marriage was rocky, the kids were unloving pains in the tits, or the old nursing career turned out to be professional ass wiper and vomit mopper.  Whatever - the DJs nailed her at the right moment and pushed her over the edge.

while I agree they are douchebags for sure--I also think we have to remember this woman was clearly, clealy depressed. Persecuting them feels like the right thing to do, but this wasn't nearly as directly harmful as the "War of the Roses" bit which only has the intent to hurt people. The woman wasn't even the main person they spoke with, they spoke with her and she passed along the phone to another whom they spent most of the time talking to.

She was a depressed person, no rational person reacts this was to being planked, especially with her place in it. No one could guess she was going to kill herself for this--the act wasn't nearly as malicious as many examples I can think of

Nope. Pranks like this where someone is basically meant to come out looking stupid and idiotic to an audience of strangers are terrible.

Punk'd, while a very stupid show, at least targets people who have decided to have public images, are tailored specifically to those people, and are performed by friends (or at least acquaintances) of the targets. I don't care for the show or Ashton Kutcher, but at least someone doing pranks isn't malicious about it.

I'd love to see a citation on that if you can find one- I followed that story pretty closely and never saw anything about the other nurse finding it amusing. There were only a few days between it and when Ms. Saldanha took her life, and during those days the hospital was being bombarded with calls and press saying the women involved should be fired.

We get it, you're upset that you lost your cushy morning DJ job because you were a hack.  Let it go.  This is somewhere around your 20th post in the thread.  You and your buddy were useless leeches on society, and the world is better off with one less obnoxious 'morning zoo crew' spewing bullshiat.

Well we will never know that now, will we? And just because it "could've been" anything, that doesn't change the fact that it irrefutably was the phone call.

Maybe she should have gotten help, she worked in a hospital and had attempted suicide twice before so it's not like there wasn't evidence that she was depressed

We get it, you're upset that you lost your cushy morning DJ job because you were a hack.  Let it go.  This is somewhere around your 20th post in the thread.  You and your buddy were useless leeches on society, and the world is better off with one less obnoxious 'morning zoo crew' spewing bullshiat.


I live in Omaha, Australia would be one hell of a commute seeing that it's a 17 hour flight and all

Genevieve Marie: and during those days the hospital was being bombarded with calls and press saying the women involved should be fired.


Then those people are just as responsible for her suicide as the DJs.

Scratch that, those people are more responsible fore her suicide than the DJs.

What's more malicious, calling someone to make them look dumb, or calling to tell them they're horrible at their job and should be fired?
