JACKIE O: I, I apologise to anybody out there who has been offended with this segment that we’ve done all week, I know it’s probably gone too far and I do apologise about that.
KYLE SANDILANDS: What sort of a dork have you turned into overnight?
"Have you had sex?" the mother asked.
"I've already told you the story of this," the clearly uncomfortable child eventually responded.
"And don't smile about this because it's not funny.
"I was raped when I was twelve years old!"
The mother then mentioned she only became aware of the incident a few months ago, despite stating earlier she wasn't completely sure if her daughter engaged in intercourse.
"And yet you still asked me the question," the girl continued.
Yesterday’s controversial radio segment was not the first time Kyle Sandilands broadcast a family’s painful sexual history.
While Sandilands said he and co-host Jackie O were "stunned" yesterday when a 14-year-old revealed on-air that she had been raped, the pair were reportedly embroiled in similar controversy in 2001, when they worked for B105 FM in Brisbane.
Sandilands had arranged an on-air confrontation between a schoolgirl, Natasha, and her mother, Angela, who said she had sex with her daughter’s boyfriend, News Ltd said.
On that occasion co-host Jackie O expressed concerns about the segment, labelling it "tacky", but Sandilands dismissed her concerns and the segment was broadcast.
During the exchange, Sandilands asked the mother: "Have you slept with your daughter’s boyfriend?"
She replied: "Yes, but there was alc ... we were drunk, it was, you know, it was ..."
While crying, her daughter Natasha said: "Yeah, that makes it all okay, doesn’t it?".
Later in the segment, after Natasha said she did not wish to speak with her mother again, Jackie O said: "I think we should leave them and not broadcast this ..."
Sandilands replied: "You’ve got to be kidding me."
Sandilands later told News Ltd he had overruled Jackie O "because I have more experience".
The radio station reportedly received hundreds of complaints about the segment.
