"X Factor" Judge Natalia Kills "Bullied" Contestant, Gets Turned Into A Meme
Alternate title: Natalia Kills Her Career.
Last night on X Factor New Zealand, judgy-judge Natalia Kills WENT OFF on contestant Joe Irvine for allegedly copying her husband, Willy Moon's, look.
Natalia, who was infuriated by Joe's suit and popular haircut, stated that she was "embarrassed to be sitting [in his] presence having to dignify that with an opinion.”
Natalia's husband, fellow judge and wearer of suits, added fuel to the fire by calling the performance "cheap and absurd", saying that it was "like Norman Bates dressing up in his mother's clothing".
A lot of people were furious with her.
Others were disappointed.
Suit-wearing contestant Joe tweeted this photo after the show:
Following tonight's episode of The X Factor NZ we received a huge amount of feedback about comments made by our judges. The nature of live television can be unpredictable and we appreciate you taking the time to voice your opinion. TV3 does not condone bullying and are currently on-site with Joe who is doing well.
