Kyle slammed over ‘disgusting’ video on Virgin Mary
Christians and Muslims around the world have united to condemn Kyle Sandilands over an inflammatory video posted online where he describes the Virgin Mary as a liar who simply got knocked up 'behind a camel shed'.
The KIIS FM shock jock was featured alongside co-star Jackie-O Henderson in the video posted to the station's social media accounts on Thursday.
Listeners were quick to slam Sandilands and the video, eventually forcing KIIS FM to remove the footage.
"I thought Mary was his (Jesus Christ's) girlfriend but apparently it was the mother," Sandilands said in the video.
"And the mother lied obviously and told everyone 'Nah I got pregnant by a magical ghost'. Bullsh*t.
"Someone chock-a-blocked her behind the camel shed.
"You might believe everything that's written down 2000 years ago to be absolutely accurate and good on you, you're dumb. Dumb as dog sh*t."
A separate and unrelated video later posted by KIIS FM was also removed after angry listeners began publishing their criticism on any posts they could find.
Fury at Sandilands' comments reached as far as Lebanon where Sydney man Charlie Bakhos posted a response that quickly went viral.
The video, posted about 9:30pm AEST, attracted more than 16,000 views in just 12 hours as Bakhos issued a call to arms.
Bakhos is the administrator of the Christian Lives Matter Facebook page.
"This is a message to Kyle Sandilands from Lebanon. I'm sitting here at the top of Our Lady of Harissa," Bakhos said.
That's why the world turns to shit because people have no religion and they don't respect other people's beliefs even if they do. They'll call this freedom of speech but boundaries must be set where you don't mock any religion. Cheap and desperate entertainment— Mohammed Abbas (@M_Abbas89) September 19, 2019
@kyleandjackieo Kyle we are going to pray for you. You are not well and need help. Everyone will pray for you. May God have mercy on you Kyle. May God have Mercy. 🙏🙏🙏— Peter Trad (@saintredsfc) September 19, 2019
"You offended Christians, Muslims, people of faith. You called the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ names, you accused her of sex, you said some disgusting things.
"Your words are just words and what you don't understand is there are a lot of fence-sitting Christians out there and you've angered them and pushed them off the fence towards getting closer to Christ.
"We will bring the prayer to you, prayer groups and thousands upon thousands to your doorstep, to your studio, until you repent and change your ways."
Bakhos ended his response by calling on people to phone the KIIS FM studios during Sandilands' Friday show to voice their anger.
KIIS FM has been contacted for comment.
