Husband-and-wife duo Natalia Kills and Willy Moon just got sacked as judges on New Zealand’s X Factor for a ‘destructive tirade’ against 25-year-old contestant Joe Irvine. They went completely OTT on the guy which might have been OK if what they were saying was even remotely funny, instead it was just brutally harsh and unnecessary:
What a pair of pricks.
MediaWorks chief Mark Weldon said:
While the judges on X Factor are expected to provide critiques of the performances, we will not tolerate such destructive tirades from any of the judges. Contestants put their all into this competition and they should expect to receive feedback and criticism that is professional and constructive. We no longer have confidence that Kills and Moon are the right people to perform the role of X Factor judges and they will leave the show, effective immediately.
Damn straight. Meanwhile, fellow judge and former All Saints girl Mel Blatt hit the nail on the head:

Nearly as cringe as the Holland’s Got Talent judge cracking those racist jokes at a contestant last year.
