Jase Hawkins and PJ Harding kicked off their first show on KIIS 101.1 yesterday morning, with the help of Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw – the new national drive hosts for KIIS FM.
McMahon and Whitelaw turned up wearing KIIS merchandise – only it was that of recently axed Melbourne brekkie hosts Matt Tilley and Meshel Laurie.
KIIS 101.1 then posted a photo on its Instagram and Facebook pages of the duo wearing the Matt & Meshel T-shirts, posing together with Hawkins and Harding holding Matt & Meshel mugs.
But the stunt backfired, with the posts – which have now been deleted – drawing a number of negative comments from the public, who described it as “pathetic”, “disrespectful” and “super tacky”.
Even Laurie made her feelings known about the stunt via Instagram:
B&T has contacted KIIS FM for comment.
