Jackie ‘O’ Henderson is called a ‘b***h’ by American radio hosts after she revealed her $90-a-week Candy Crush addiction ‘while thousands of people in our industry lose their jobs’

Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has been roasted on American radio after she revealed her ‘addiction’ to the iPhone puzzle game Candy Crush.

The 46-year-old admitted on The Kyle and Jackie O Show last week she spent about $90 a week on in-app purchases and even played the game while on the air.

After discovering her extraordinary habit, New York City radio duo Cooper Lawrence and Anthony Michaels blasted Jackie for playing Candy Crush at work while other radio hosts lose their jobs amid the Covid-19 recession.

‘I used to play Candy Crush a million years ago and I never spent a dime on it. But I couldn’t care less what she does with her money,’ Cooper said.

‘It’s the fact that she has a job in radio, she’s on the air live when thousands of people in our industry have lost their jobs.’

She continued: ‘If you’re on radio and you’re still working then you are very lucky but this b**ch is sitting there playing candy crush.’

Cooper’s co-host Anthony agreed, adding: ‘If you can’t listen to you without playing Candy Crush then I can’t listen to you.’

‘There should be a basket outside the studio and she can put her phone in it… You need to treat them like kids.’

Last week, Jackie O revealed her ‘addiction’ to popular game Candy Crush is costing her $90 each week.

Executive producer Sonia ‘Palestine’ Jahshan also said Jackie’s fixation with the game was driving the team ‘insane’ because she wasn’t paying attention to the show.

‘We’re trying to brief you on the segment or Pedro [Vitola, senior producer] is playing you grabs and you’re just not paying any attention,’ Palestine said.

‘Pedro and I have figured out what it was that you were doing, and it’s bloody Candy Crush! Instead of listening to us, you’re playing Candy Crush!’

An embarrassed Jackie confessed she was ‘such a loser’ for playing the game, then revealed how much she was spending weekly on in-app purchases.

‘I can’t help it. I’m so addicted to Candy Crush and I’m actually spending hard-earned money on the game,’ she said.

‘I reckon I’m spending $80 or $90 a week on it, because if you can’t get through to a level, they’ll block you out for a period of time, unless you pay to keep trying to get through to that level,’ she explained.
