And on Monday, Jackie revealed & # 39; O & # 39; Henderson that she almost stopped radio in the middle of the recoil to the & # 39; worst & # 39; incident of her 26-year media career.

On Better than yesterday with Osher Günsberg, the radio presenter spoke about the infamous Kyle and Jackie O Show segment, where a 14-year-old girl in the air revealed that she had been raped.

& # 39; Is this worth it? & # 39; Jackie & # 39; O & # 39; Henderson unveiled the incident that almost stopped the radio - while encountering another scandal following Kyle Sandilands' joke about the Virgin Mary

& # 39; The first was the lie detector. That was awful. Up to that point, Kyle and I were not really talking, & Jackie said, 44.

& # 39; That was a real turning point in our career. Have news journalists from your house every day, just want blood.

& # 39; I remember having been hiding in my house for days. It was terrible, I didn't know how to handle it. It consumes you. & # 39;

Turning point: the radio presenter spoke about the decade-old segment, in which a 14-year-old girl saw that she had been raped in The Kyle and Jackie O Show

The controversy started in August 2009, when a teenage girl in the air was asked about her sexual history during a lie detection segment. The girl became emotional and revealed that she was raped when she was 12 years old.

& # 39; True … is that the only (sexual) experience you've had? & # 39; Kyle Sandilands replied and asked Jackie to complete the segment.

After a two-week break and a lot of controversy, Kyle and Jackie O returned to the air.

But in September 2009, Kyle again faced a media storm when he said actress Magda Szubanski – at the time an ambassador for Jenny Craig – could lose more weight if she went to a concentration camp.

& # 39; I just felt: "Oh my God, I can't get a break here, this is too much". I really thought about quitting because I just didn't think it was worth it, & said Jackie, thinking about the incident.

& # 39; When you are in that bubble where you feel the world is against you and everyone hates you, you start to wonder: & # 39; Is this worth it? & # 39 ;, she added.

After the Magda Szubanski incident, Kyle was suspended for the show, meaning Osher Günsberg completed a month in September.

Jackie admitted that she and Kyle have since watered down the show, which has helped them stay on the air for so long.

& # 39; Yes, we sometimes cross the border a bit. But we don't get over it every day, & she said.

On Monday, Christian and Muslim protesters gathered outside the studios of KIIS FM in North Ryde after Kyle made an offensive joke about the Virgin Mary last week.

The police were called upon to intervene when dozens of people prayed in the street and called to fire Kyle because of his blasphemous remarks.

& # 39; We live in a country with dual standards, because Clause 214 in the Commercial Code of Conduct states that a radio station cannot offend religion, sex, and gender & # 39 ;, said Georgie Clark, who led the protest.

& # 39; Kyle from 106.5 KIIS FM went and discriminated not only one religion but two.

& # 39; What is the difference between insulting a homosexual or a thief or a liar or an adulterer or a fornicator like Israel Folau did? But when it comes to religion, they just want to sweep us under the carpet. & # 39;

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia on Monday, a spokesperson for the Australian Radio Network (ARN) apologized for Kyle's comments.

& # 39; As we said last week, we join Kyle (apology) and apologize without reservation for a possible violation & # 39 ;, they said.

& # 39; Last week when this content was running, we immediately acknowledged that it was not suitable for distribution and it was immediately removed. & # 39;

During the offensive radio segment, Kyle claimed that Mary was not really a virgin.

Despite widespread indignation, Kyle did not break any law by mocking the Virgin Mary.

Blasphemy is not a criminal offense under Australian federal law.

However, some jurisdictions allow an offended religious person to seek redress under law that prohibits hate speech.

& # 39; I thought Mary was his girlfriend (Jesus Christ), but apparently it was the mother, & # 39; he said. & # 39; And the mother clearly lied and said to everyone, "No, I got pregnant through a magical spirit." Bulls ** t.

& # 39; Someone was blocking her behind the camel shed … You could believe that everything written down 2,000 years ago is absolutely accurate and good for you, you're stupid. Stupid like a dog. & # 39;

A video of the segment was later removed from the social media channels of KIIS FM and Kyle apologized for his comments.

& # 39; I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my comments, & # 39; he said to The Daily Telegraph. & # 39; Everyone has the right to their own religious beliefs and I fully support that right. & # 39;

Meanwhile, the reactions of Kyle have spread fans on social media, with some saying he should lose his job, while others defend his right to tell religious jokes.

The Kyle and Jackie O Show currently has a break and returns on Monday, September 30.
