‘They are not well’: Kyle Sandilands hits out at a vegan group’s ‘ridiculous’ claims that Bunnings’ popular sausage sizzles ‘contributes’ to climate change
KIIS FM radio host Kyle Sandilands has slammed a vegan group after they claimed the much-loved Bunnings sausage sizzle contributed to climate change.
On Monday morning, a caller informed Kyle and his co-host Jackie O Henderson during their Kyle and Jackie O show that a group of vegans had ambushed his local Bunnings where a sausage sizzle fundraiser was being held for bushfire victims.
The vegans had suggested the production of beef sausages attributed to global warming and insisted sausages should be vegan instead.

Meat-lover Kyle was left furious after hearing the claims and labelled them as ‘ridiculous’.
‘If you want to be a vegan hippy that’s fine, but choose your location,’ the 48-year-old told his listeners.
‘I know they are not well because they’ve got no meat in them – they’re very grey looking – but someone at the hippy meeting must’ve said “let’s not pick on them there”.’

He issued a sincere eight-minute apology in which he confessed to not understanding ‘the gravity’ of what he’d said.
‘I didn’t realise the gravity of it. I upset a lot of people,’ he said on air. ‘Even friends of mine were like, “Bro how could you say something so dumb like that?”‘
The KIIS FM star added that he ‘only wanted to make people laugh’ and emphasised that the joke was ‘not planned’ in any way.
