DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD.
Well it seems like the couple is on a role the past 7 days. First the c-bomb incident and now this… But you know… bad things happen in threes.
Finally! MediaWorks has fired Moon and Kills from The X Factor NZ as they “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.” – MediaWorks’ chief executive Mark Weldon and went on to say “Contestants put their all into this competition and they should expect to receive feedback and criticism that is professional and constructive.”
“Last night on X Factor both Kills and Moon made comments that were completely unacceptable. 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,” he said.
“We have spoken to MediaWorks regarding the incident involving Natalia Kills and Willy Moon, to make it clear that we believe the comments made were wholly unacceptable,” a McDonald’s spokesperson told 3 News.
“Today’s announcement follows the launch of several Facebook pages calling for Kills to resign as a judge, with one attracting more than 50,000 ‘likes’ alone. A Change.org petition has also attracted more than 54,000 signatures.” – 3News
“We have reacted decisively and in the best interests of the contestants. We now need to move on and give the contestants and the public the competition they deserve,” X Factor executive producer Andrew Szusterman said.
Tonight The X Factor NZ will be judged by Walker and Blatt, with two new judges to be announced before next week’s show.
