Axl Whitehead exposes too much


Recommended Posts

TELEVISION personality Axle Whitehead has been rebuked by Network Ten after exposing his penis at the Australian Recording Industry (ARIA) Awards.


The incident was not telecast on Network Ten, and it was unclear how many of the 10,000 people, including young music fans, who were at the Acer Arena in Sydney last night saw it.

Whitehead, who has hosted Ten's Video Hits for two years, was on-stage presenting an award to hip-hop outfit Hilltop Hoods with radio jock Jabba, when he exposed himself.

He also simulated masturbation on the ARIA trophy as the winners made their way to the stage.

"I was shocked that he did it," said one guest who attended the event and saw the incident.

"It's just lucky that it wasn't shown live on television."

While the 2003 Australian Idol finalist couldn't be contacted today for comment, a Ten spokeswoman said the stunt was unacceptable.

"In an incident that was not telecast, last night Axle momentarily exposed himself at the ARIAs," she said.

"His behaviour was inappropriate and Ten and ARIA producers, Roving Enterprises, do not condone it.

"We are addressing this issue with Axle and will make no further comment at this stage."

ARIA event producer Mark Pope agreed.

"I wasn't in the actual room at the time of the alleged incident," he said.

"However this type of behaviour isn't something that ARIA finds acceptable or condones."

The 25-year-old Victorian's former Video Hits co-host Kelly Cavuoto was dropped from the program following a drunken outburst at the 2004 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.
