ARN’s KIIS FM has edited a recording of a live interview after Kyle Sandiland made sexual remarks about the Queen and referred to Meghan Markle’s mother as “the black mum”.
The audio from Monday morning’s interview was uploaded to KIIS FM’s website yesterday yet the word “black” had been edited out.
During the interview with Markle’s estranged half-brother Thomas Markle jr, Sandilands also joked about providing sexual services to the Queen.
Sandilands said to Markle jr that the Markle family should have remained together for the “perks”, such as staying at Harry and Meghan’s Frogmore Cottage home.
Markle jr replied: “I was about to ring up the Queen and see if I could rent out the cottage for a while, you know, move in there … and you know, offer my services, you know.”
Sandilands replied: “What do you mean? Sexually? To the Queen? That’s a bit much.”
He also asked Markle jr if he would ever have sex with Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie.
“What about one of those freckly cousins … Eugenie or whatever its name was. Would you go there? You know, the freckly cousins, the red-headed bloody things with the stupid hats. Would you go there?”
It’s not the first time Sandilands has made crude jokes on air. Just last September he was forced to apologise for saying the Virgin Mary got “chock-a-blocked” behind a camel shed.
Sandilands also called Meghan Markle’s mother Doria Ragland, “the black mum”, with the word ‘black’ subsequently edited out of the audio uploaded to KIIS FM’s website.
Other parts of the audio have also been removed, including when Sandliands asked Markle jr whether he was single because he thought having a “princess sister” would be “a leg opener”.
“You would have said ‘hey have you seen that Meghan Markle? Well she’s my sister’,” Sandilands said.
“Boing! The legs spring open. It’s amazing,” Markle jr responded.
An ARN spokesperson told B&T: “It was a cheeky and irreverent interview in the style that regular listeners of the show are accustomed to.
“When listening to this interview within the context of the show, it is clear this is a light-hearted and inoffensive chat.
“As online shows are edited to produce a ‘best of’ each day, it’s not uncommon for online versions of the show to be different to the live broadcast.”
