Kyle and Jackie O are known for their funny antics, but the radio hosts may have gone a little too far when they called their coworker inter Pete an "idiot".
In a video posted on Facebook, Sandilands passes the producer a vase, which was sent in as a gift. Intern Pete then accidentally drops the clay ornament and Sandilands reacts in an aggressive manner.
“Oh Jesus Peter! Are you joking?” Sandilands cuts off an interview.
“You idiot! What? You idiot” Jackie O chimed in.
Sandilands then claims that perhaps Intern Pete dropped the vase intentionally.
“You did that on purpose, you piece of sh*t... He dropped it on the floor on purpose - the bloody big pot and broke it into a million little pieces," he said.
Pete then defends himself and says it was simply an accident.
However, the comments section of the video posted on social media proved fans of the show were quick to stick up for Intern Pete.
"Poor Pete he gets spoken to so badly on the show... anyway looked accidental to me,” one user said.
"To me it look's like it was an accident, be easy on the poor man I'm sure he feels bad about the drop," said another.
“Funny we teach kids not to bully each other every day yet adults are calling adults idiots. Jackie, you should be ashamed. If your daughter came home and said someone called her an idiot will you think it’s OK? Intern Pete is someone’s son,” one more viewer wrote.
Following the incident, a social media manager of the KIIS FM account has replied and admitted that perhaps it was a case of misjudgement.
“After looking at the video we think poor intern Pete dropped the pot accidentally,” the comment said.
“At the time we thought he may have done it on purpose hence the shock and disgust on our faces. It was clearly an accident and mistakes happen Pete.
“We love you mate (even though you are really clumsy but we love you for that too).”
