A Current Affair: “Burnt Dwarf Exclusive” (I’m not sure this is helping)

By David Knox on September 4, 2013 / Filed Under Programming 8

2013-09-04_1138Three words that should probably never go together in a headline: “Burnt Dwarf Exclusive.”

Tonight ACA interviews entertainer Blake Johnston, who was in the news this week after an AFL “Mad Monday” incident with a St. Kilda football player.

Nine’s Press Release for the interview is headlined “Burnt Dwarf Exclusive.” But I’m not sure it’s helping….

The dwarf at the centre of the AFL’s ‘Mad Monday’ antics reveals the torment and distress the incident has caused on A Current Affair, tonight at 6.30pm on Nine.

In an exclusive interview with Martin King, Blake tonight gives us the truth of exactly how the event unfolded and talks for the first time about the humiliation and degradation he experienced as a result.

We also see first-hand the injuries the diminutive entertainer sustained in the prank.

And in a twist to the story, A Current Affair will reveal details of emails between Blake and a senior St Kilda player which will cast an even darker shadow over this sorry saga.

    I think what happened was seriously disgusting. But that headline…

    Thanks David for pointing it out.

    Yes, but is he also a dodgy car salesman neighbour from hell?

    And will the story be plastered with an “Exclusive to Nine” tag like some cheap bootleg video?

    Nine journalism is coming up a bit short.
