They acted like morons and didn’t care about the consequences. Don’t try to make excuses for what they caused to happen.

I’m with you, Bonnie. I’m not a fan of pranking, but in no way is it the equivalent of bullying, and Jacintha’s suicide could not have been foreseen as a likely outcome. Consequently, I consider the DJs victims, too, and the outcry against them indeed to be bullying way beyond anything they ever considered. Lighten up world. There is one suicide as a result of this thread, with all the collateral damage that suicide brings. Let’s not worsen it by inflicting psychic damage on the DJs far in excess of what Jacintha endured.

It is obviously a big part of their faults………..What the heck is wrong with the world, YES it was a prank but not everyone like pranks and a woman at her age and type probably wouldn’t. AND it’s not the fact that it was just a prank, she probably felt guilty about what she did and the world was gonna know about it and maybe she was scared about what the royals would do :(

I DO BLAME THEM ENTIRELY! They DID have bad intentions otherwise they would never have even thought about making the call. What comes around goes around. You can be sure that their lives will suffer the same kind of agonizing pain they brought on to the murdered nurse and her family. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT, DUMMIES!

I agree with you somewhat. If they did not prank her, this would not have happened. Hopefully they will learn that pranks are not funny but cruel. However, I do feel empathy for the DJs however as this result was not expected.

I agree, the DJ’s are victims of a prank that went wrong. The reason(s) behind the nurses suicide will never be truly known, the establishment will see to that! AND Never take at face value anything that the media tell you.

I bet if they pranked the hospital where you where staying, trying to get information about your own health, you will be pissed as a snake. Everywhere in the world the right of privacy in the matter of health is something highly important. And let’s not forget that HRH was in a serious situation not just a cold. Just for this they should go to jail. Call it a prank or whatever you want but it is not different than hacking the hospital database to get the information they wanted. And the poor nurse, she probably lost her job (how many people suicide when they loose their job and also I don’t think she will have found another one after all the media attention). Actions have consequences that run a long way…

Don’t blame them!!I heard about the tragic news before and i listened to the prank call after knowing what happened,but i still laughed my a$$ off.it was hilarious!!i dont think she commited suicide because of this..theres much more to the story.nobody is giving up on life cause of a prank(that is actually the best prank in a long while of the media history).its just an unfortunate coinsidence and now theyre blaming the two host.the media and the people always wants to hear about celebrity scandals and it was just another opportunity to talk about something and throw sh!t at (in my opinion) innocent people.to all the threatening and hating tweeters/commenters/etc get a life and learn to think realisticly

Every one here who thinks it is absurd that she would commit suicide is too busy relating it to their insignificant piece in this world. If you mess up at your job, chances are that the whole world won’t find out and that your mess up doesn’t involve The Royal Family. I don’t condone the action of suicide, but to say that the DJs have no responsibility and that there just had to be more than this incident is looking at it from a personalized low-effect point of view.

Even if this poor nurse did not commit suicide related to this incident, the radio broadcasters were completely deceiving to hospital staff and should have never knowingly lied to get confidential medical info. I smell a WINNING law suit for both the royals and victim. Let this be a lesson to all idiot broadcasters.

I think the hospital should give better training to their staff on how to deal with calls enquiring about anyone, maybe with an extra lesson that says “Ask more security questions to anyone putting on a voice similar to the Spitting image version of the queen”.

How absurd that she should feel mortified that she was the one who inadvertently and while trying to be helpful caused deeply personal information about a patient to be given away to two giggling Australians who broadcast it to the world. So what if she was tired after a night of caring for others – entertainment comes first. If she killed herself it must have been for some other reason – surely no-one could take their job that seriously? Life should be a hoot. Drinking and driving – why are we so down on that? Its just having a laugh. No-one should feel guilty about having fun. Life is about enjoying yourself – not worrying about consequences and responsibilities. Come on! Get a life.

Deeply personal information? “Nurse: She’s sleeping at the moment and has had an uneventful night, and sleep is good for her, as we speak. She’s been given some fluids to re-hydrate her because she was quite dehydrated when she came in. But she’s stable at the moment.”

She’s sleeping and has had fluid, I think that happens to people most days.

You’re right though, making a prank phone call is exactly the same as drinking and driving

Definitely agree with you, cant believe that some one would kill themselves just because they fell for a prank.. definitely there must be other reasons as well..

the only people at fault here are the royal family and the hospital for not setting up some sort of daily code word or pin for incoming calls. No one else is to blame. Can we please get rid of the Royals they are SO not needed

To go into the private medical condition of any royalty and falsely misrepresent yourself to obtain that information is legally wrong on so many levels. These two radio DJ’s took their jobs to a new and disrespectful level. SUE THEM!

They would have to go and sue a lot of other people for impersonating celebrities in the past over the phone.

To insinuate that the phone call may have been the last straw for Jacintha’s suicide is ridiculous. You have no way of knowing how much she valued her position, discretion, her job and the Royal Family. To her this may have been such a humiliating blunder that she did indeed feel she had to take her life. You are right to say that people prank all the time but those pranks never disclose confidential information. The DJ’s prank was NOT FUNNY even if the outcome had not ended tragically.

You have no idea about the seriousness of releasing confidential health information. It not only was tricked out of this well intended nurse, it was laughed at because of the poor accents, etc. It was mean spirited and disrespectful. Media picked it up and the whole world knows about this mistake. The pranksters are actually criminal. Their silence is noted.

Everybody wants to blame someone else, no one takes responsiblity. There have been times i have messed up at work and i have not even considered killing myself over it. There are definitely other issues at hand. They didn’t bully the rest of the media made it into a huge story they should be blamed instead. People need to learn to let things go and your situation isn’t always someone elses fault. I guess if i get cut of on the road and go home and commit suicide it is their fault….no. I would commit the act. We need to grow up and learn to get help. It is nobodys fault some people lack coping skills, we all just need to learn how to use them

Its dumb to blame the prankers for the nurses suicide. If anything i would say the nurse was murdered for having part in the release in this information. Staged to look like a suicide.

If they hadn’t made the prank call the woman would be alive – they are responsible. I hope this ends their career forever. I hope they do suffer depression for a very long time.

I wouldn’t blame them, I mean mojo in the morning does way worse things, like find cheaters and such. It was just for fun, they could never have known this would happen.

I’m with you on this HL. No way are the DJ’s responsible for her death. She only TRANSFERRED the call to Kate’s room but another nurse actually gave out the information. We haven’t heard the whole story. It doesn’t make sense for someone to commit suicide just because they put a call through.

IMO, I’m willing to bet the hospital blamed her for putting the call through and who knows what the other employees said about her and made her feel like a villian. The DJ’s should be suspended, because that was a stupid prank, but no way should they be fired.

An otherwise happy mother of 2 and wife doesn’t kill herself over a simple mistake that didn’t harm anyone there was a other underlying cause..

In some societies they do. This woman is South Asian, and for many (not all) in the :South Asian community, life isn’t worth living without honor. So in some very old world countries, the response to causing shame upon yourself and family-is unfortunately to commit suicide.. Its terrible and we don’t know for sure that this was the case. But it very well could have been.

And I’m sorry too. There’s a huge difference between a prank that while silly doesn’t have long lasting implications no someone else’s life. And causing a prank that could cause an innocent person to lose their job…

I blame the hospital. Their HR department threw her under the bus. Blame her for taking the call,not the nurse that gave the info out.
