    Holden pulls sponsorship from Kyle and Jackie O radio show.

    Holden pulls sponsorship over Sandilands's 'fat' attack

    Holden has withdrawn its sponsorship of Kyle Sandilands's radio show after he launched a withering personal attack on a journalist, threatening to "hunt her down" for reporting poor audience reaction to his wobbly new TV project.

    The car maker this afternoon announced it was dropping its financial ties to 2Day FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show after Sandilands launched a breathtaking attack on a News Ltd journalist, calling her a "piece of s**t" after she reported on the falling ratings of his TV show.

    "Recent comments made on the Kyle and Jackie O breakfast show do not in any way reflect the views or opinions of Holden and we are very disappointed to hear Kyle's personal attack on a journalist,'' Holden spokeswoman Kate Lonsdale said this afternoon.

    "We believe the show is no longer in line with Holden's core values and as a result we have taken action to withdraw our sponsorship of the program, effective immediately."

    The offending rant by the not so slim himself douchbag...

You’re a piece of ****.

    Jackie O: You take criticism so well. I don’t think I heard Hamish and Andy do this when this happened.

    Kyle: I don’t care. Hamish and Andy handle their things the way that they do. But this low thing, ... I can tell you, you are supposed to be impartial, you little troll.

    Jackie O: Is it in the TV section?

    Kyle: No, it’s on news.com.au. (Reads out the review.) "video killed the radio star. Shock jock Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O are maybe the latest airwave talent to fall victim of the small screen. Within minutes of the radio duo’s highly anticipated program a night with the stars premiered, fans had already taken to twitter to pronounce the 90-minute special 'awkward and a 'disaster'. You’re a bull**** artist, girl. That’s what you are. You should be fired from your job. And your hair. Your hair is very 90s.

    Jackie O: They’ve put a picture of her?

    Kyle: Yeah, and your blouse. You haven’t got that much titty to be wearing that low cut a blouse. Watch your mouth, girl, or I will hunt you down.

    Jackie O: You have got to learn to take it on the chin a little bit.

    Kyle: No. Even people I hate, I give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Well he hosts the most popular commercial morning radio show in Sydney with an audience in the hundreds of thousands. Holden have done the best thing they could by dumping the show as have The Good Guys.

    I dont think anyone cares what he thinks cause we all know what a tool he is, but the media just love
    it when he carries on cause it means they can run stories and sell papers and magazines from it, if
    they would stop writing about him nobody would pay any attention to him at all.

    Re: Holden pulls sponsorship from Kyle and Jackie O radio show.

    The squeaky wheel always gets the grease.

    As much as we don't like to admit it though, ****sticks like Scandalpants do influence the behaviour of the insecure. No doubt there would have been numerous people sitting in morning traffic laughing and saying **** yeah to their mates as he belted out his rant.

    People are like that. Not everyone, but, if everyone was against him he would not keep getting opportunity after opportunity to get back on the airwaves.

    I've never listened to his radio show and turn off ever show he's ever been on (no great loss IMO).

    now all that needs to happen is for the radio station to withdraw its support.

    Re: Holden pulls sponsorship from Kyle and Jackie O radio show.

    I don't listen to him on the radio but I thought he mellowed a bit on Aust. Got Talent. I guess a leopard can't change it's spots.

    If Holden would like to sponsor me instead, I'd be happy to talk to them about a deal

    I have never heard the show and only know the guy from the stuff that makes the media but from what that has been - here here. The guy appears to be nothing more than an out and out tool. Nothing like causing over the top outrage to cover from a lack of talent I suppose.
