Though it's hard to feel very bad for the 30 million (+) Ashley Madison users recently exposed by a group of hackers known only as the Impact Team, it's quite easy to feel absolutely awful for someone learning about their partner's expensive infidelities from their favorite Australian radio hosts. For reasons (other than ratings) not entirely clear, two grown men named Fitzy and Wippa gave listeners the distinct displeasure of that exact emotion during a recent broadcast.
Shortly before their Nova FM radio show on Thursday, two grown men named Fitzy and Wippa asked for any female listeners who suspected their husbands of any number of infidelities to give them a call during the broadcast. The less-than-dynamic duo promised to scour the leaked Ashley Madison documents to either give listeners peace of mind or a reason to question practically everything about their existence. As these things go, people actually called.
"When that little thing came on the news about the Ashley Madison hack, he sort of went a bit funny," one caller tells the hosts. "I asked him straight out. He said 'Don't be stupid. We're married. We've got two kids.'" After adding that her husband's work hours and financial situation had suddenly changed, the two grown men named Fitzy and Wippa offer to search the leaked Ashley Madison documents for her husband's information.
"We're putting [his information] into this website right now and his details have revealed that he's actually on the website," says the grown man named Fitzy. Adding that such websites are "disgusting," the woman suddenly ends the call. "I don't know if we should have done that," a grown man named Wippa says shortly after. "I'm sorry that that happened. I feel a bit bad."
Twitter, however, feels even worse:
