Natalia Kills and Willy Moon Fired from ‘The X Factor New Zealand’
TV3 has fired Willy Moon and Natalia Kills from The X Factor New Zealand after the two judges bullied contestant Joe Irvine on Sunday.
In a statement, Mediaworks (owners of TV3) said:
“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. 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.”
Thank you New Zealand! That was swift justice.
It was really the right thing to do. What these two did last night was unacceptable in any context.
Let’s hope they are not rewarded with career longevity after this.
