Kate hoax call

The London hospital which employed a nurse caught up in a hoax call about details of the Duchess of Cambridge has protested to the Australian network which broadcast the conversation.

Perhaps you have heard about this situation and the consequences. What do you think...was it funny or not to make such a call?

Not an acceptable form of humor...hurting folks is not funny.

I agree with tecoyah, it is an unacceptable form of humor.

Not sure why the nurse killed herself though.

You don't know why a British women killed herself after doing something nasty (and getting outed) to her soon to be queen? You might not be suicidal but it should be pretty obvious why she offed herself.

Emotionally derangement is the only thing that comes to my mind.

BORKED

The hospital insisted that the nurse did not have a mental problem before committing suicide but she was a foreign worker hired by the NHS and English was a second language and she could not detect a fake British accent by an Aussie broadcaster, which added to her humiliation. The two DJs were suspended temporarily but there will be a criminal investigation into this case, which reminds me of Murdock's phone hacking scandal and the Aussie media's anti-royalty bias is at the heart of the problem.

You maybe correct and there probably was some more to it then just the prank. Thought it would seem the prank is what sent her over the edge. Hurting people in a prank is not right and unacceptable form of Humor.

I mean that would be like me getting the show Cheaters to make an appearance at a married mans house as a prank and make them lead him to believe his wife is cheating. It hurts the husband which is wrong.

Totally agree Chris humiliating someone can do somone serious stuff to some which is a good example i this case. This prank probably did push her over the edge but if this prank hadn't then something else would of done i think it was just a matter of when.
