‘The X Factor New Zealand’ Abuse: Natalia Kills and Willy Moon bully Joe Irvine (VIDEO)
Move over Simon Cowell, I think we just found the most horrible judges in Reality TV show history. The X Factor New Zealand judges Natalia Kills and Willy Moon verbally abuse contestant Joe Irvine on Sunday’s show — comparing him to “serial killer” Norman Bates and calling his look “disgusting.” Why? Because he wore a suit and tie!
Just because you are a judge on a reality show, doesn’t mean you have the right to say all the awful things Kills and Moon said to Joe. How appalling!
The worst part is that these two are MARRIED. So basically they are made for each other! Both of them are on my s**tlist now.
TV3 New Zealand had to make sure Joe Irvine was OK backstage after the bullying. The TV station got tons of complaints.
TV3 does not condone bullying and are currently on-site with Joe who is doing well. (3/3)

The reaction from New Zealanders online has been furious:
Shame on you Natalia. Shame on you. #xfactornz

NZ has one of the highest teenage suicide rates in the world, and the bullying shown on #xfactornz was simply unacceptable!! Get rid of her!

Absolutely mortified by the words of @Nataliakills on NZ X-Factor. Its so self obsessed to believe a suit and tie is a copy right offence.
