The two Australian DJ's who crank called a British hospital where a pregnant Kate Middleton was staying say they are sorry for what was supposed to be a joke.
On Tuesday, imitating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, the radio hosts got through to nurse Jacintha Saldahna.
Friday, her body was found of an apparent suicide.
It's still unclear exactly what happened to Saldahna.
The CEO of the DJ's station said the show is off the air until further notice.
"I'm not going into details what our internal procedures are. But what I can tell you is that we are satisfied that we haven't broken any rules", said Rhys Holleran.
Some Fox Four viewers don't think the broadcast company needs to go that far and take them off the air.
Wallace posted on our facebook page. "It should not be shut down. The DJ's are young and vibrant. The incident should be used as a learning example about what can go wrong when pranking someone."
"Radio stations prank people all the time. The fact that the nurse committed suicide is tragic, but it isn't the DJ's fault", said Rob.
Larry wrote, "It should be shut down for at least 6 months. Let things cool down."
Henry added, "I honestly don't know. There are entire TV shows based on pranks and practical jokes but it is very sad."
