Hot FM radio hosts jump on Schapelle bandwagon in jest

IT HASN'T even been 24 hours since the news one of Australia's notorious criminals could be released from a Bali prison very soon.

And Hot FM Central Queensland breakfast show hosts have jumped on the Schapelle Corby bandwagon by starting a Twitter trend and running an 'interview" with Schapelle this morning.

The duo used social media, and the hashtag (which has been pointed to victory by Brisbane counterparts Dan and Maz), to promote this morning's 'interview'.

But, after listening to this 'interview', one wonders - have the CQ pair taken things too far?

Did Browny and EJ take the Schapelle Corby joke too far?

This poll ended on 28 February 2014.

Yes - 44%

No - 55%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Perhaps, they were enticed by the masses of Twitterverse people that Tweet inappropriate, rude tweets with the hashtag #ThingsSchapelleMissed.
