There are many SACK VILE KYLE facebook groups that rose to existence following the November 2011 outbursts from radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands, after he verbally attacked a newspaper journalist for criticising one of his recent television shows. This vitriolic attack outraged both women and men across the country, and brought together one such group of dedicated Australians who are committed to working together to bring an end to this man’s reign of vulgarity and assault on public airwaves. It therefore came as no surprise then, that when the women co-founders of this particular group, reached out to friends, family, co-workers and other networks, inviting them to join in their plight to bring this man down, the group membership went from national to global within months. Recent media stories about this group, and the work they have tirelessly put into the group objective, resulted in an explosion of requests to join the group.
We now have over 250 people working around the clock contacting companies that have advertisements on either the Kyle & Jackie O breakfast show or the Kyle & Jackie O website. A lot of the companies that we have approached stated they had not been aware that their advertisements had been placed in spots on the 2Day Fm schedule, that associated them with Kyle and Jackie O. This has been due to 3rd party media buyers, bonus placement spots and other marketing arrangements. These companies have worked with us to identify when and where their advertisements have appeared and have then promptly advised us that they have requested their brand not appear on any show or website associated with Kyle Sandilands.
In recent days our members have contacted and received notification that the following companies have withdrawn advertising from either the Kyle & Jackie O breakfast show, or Kyle & Jackie O website
