Former Adelaide Footy player Andrew Jarman got into a bit of a pickle last night for saying some rude things on Triple M’s Adelaide drive show.
In a pre-recorded segment about pressure points to induce labour, Jarmon said: “Just f**k the guts out of ’em with your big c**k”. This charming sentence was apparently in reference to former Port Adelaide captain Domenic Cassisi, his wife is nine months pregnant.
Jarmon told Today Tonight: “I thought we’d give him some advice on some early childhood tips to bring the birth along quicker. I threw out there what my advice and tips that I used with my lovely wife Marion with our three children and the words came out. I apologised as soon as we heard yesterday … I’m very respectful of women.”
Triple M released a statement yesterday afternoon saying it “deeply regrets and apologises for the broadcast of inappropriate material yesterday afternoon.
“The editing of the material prior to broadcast did not occur due to human error. An on-air apology was broadcast during the program. In addition, Andrew Jarman has been suspended by Triple M Adelaide as of this afternoon.”
The lesson here is: make sure the ON AIR button is turned off when you make sexist comments.
