Kyle Sandilands suffers an embarrassing boomer mistake

He may be young at heart, but Kyle Sandilands certainly showed his age on Thursday’s radio show.

The 50-year-old radio titan turned red during an on-air discussion about technology on The Kyle And Jackie O Show after he mistakenly referred to Firefox as a television streaming service.

During the segment, Kyle began bragging about the amount of steamy services he’d bought, to co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson: “I’ve got everything!”

“I’ve got the Foxtel, I’ve got the Firefox, I’ve got…” he began.

Firefox is not a streaming service, rather it is an open source web browser used to access information over the internet.

KIIS FM newscaster Brooklyn Ross interrupted: ‘Did you say Firefox?’

“What is Firefox?” asked Jackie.

“That’s like an Internet browser,” Brooklyn replied, sending Jackie into hysterical laughter.

“Maybe I called it wrong… you’re right,” Kyle replied sheepishly.

Mocking: Jackie (left) started poking fun at Kyle (right), listing other non-streaming services: “I’ve got Google, I’ve got Chrome, I’ve got it all!”

Jackie began to make fun of him, listing other non-streaming services: “I’ve got Google, I’ve got Chrome, I’ve got it all!”

“Oh yeah, have a good laugh,” Kyle chuckled.

It’s not the first time Kyle has had an on-air boomer moment.

In April, the broadcasting veteran admitted that he had struggled to grasp the concept of Sam Smith as non-binary.

Sam prefers the gender-neutral pronouns “they,” “them,” and “their,” which Kyle found confusing because these words typically refer to groups of people, not individuals.

Jackie and Brooklyn tried to explain how “they” can be singular when referring to a non-binary person.

‘I’m tired of this. Why do I have to do this?’ Kyle asked, to which Jackie replied, “That’s how it is these days, them.”

The shock jock then said he identified himself as a “48-year-old black woman” and expected to be treated as such.

He added: “I’m allowed to use the N word now because I identify as a black woman. Is that correct? Is that how it works?’

Brooklyn, who is openly gay, suggested “you can just say his name.” Jackie corrected him promptly: “Their name, Brooklyn.’

Kyle, who was due to interview Sam later that morning, became annoyed and said he couldn’t understand the pronouns.

‘I don’t believe in ‘their’. I can not do it. It is too much. “It’s an absolute sweetheart,” as if there were two,” he said.

Jackie said she remembers how to address Sam correctly by following a simple rule. ‘If you talk to him’ [sic], imagine you’re talking to The Veronicas. That’s how I do it,” she said, referring to the Australian pop duo.
