Radio host Ray Hadley has lashed out at ex 2GB-colleague Alan Jones for speaking on controversial celebrity chef Pete Evans’ podcast.
Last month Evans invited Jones to speak on his Evolve podcast, which saw Jones and Evans strike up a bond over their support of Trump and the political handling of the coronavirus.
Hadley took umbrage with rival Jones’ appearance on the podcast, calling Evans “a very dangerous person”.
“Pete Evans is a dill. I noticed that my former colleague Alan Jones [was] waxing lyrical on his podcast website,” Hadley said live on air yesterday morning.
“The day that Alan Jones is an ally of Pete Evans is the day that we have a problem.
“The day that Alan Jones thinks it’s OK to go on Pete Evans’ website in light of what we’re facing at the moment is the day we have a problem.
“This bloke is a very dangerous person, Pete Evans, not just because of his insane theories but he’s encouraging people to invest in something where they could lose a lot of money and they need to be really careful.”
Hadley had been speaking on the freedom protests which happened across Australia over the weekend, before putting Jones and Evans in his firing line.
Evans hasn’t been shy about airing his thoughts on COVID-19, touting bizarre conspiracy theories and recently being fined $25,000 by the Therapeutic Goods Administration in April for promoting a “light machine” he claimed could treat COVID-19.
