KISS FM host Kyle Sandilands caused outrage amongst Christians and Muslims last week after making offensive comments about the Virgin Mary during a segment on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
And now, it’s been revealed that the shock jock has received a death threat after a foul-mouthed rant by an irate caller, which never made it to air, was posted online.

An unnamed man can be heard making death threats towards Sandilands and calls KIIS FM's Intern Pete offensive names based on his sexuality.
“Is Kyle there? I want to have a word with Kyle about the comment he made,' the caller demands, adding: 'How is it alright for you's (sic) to talk about the gays and being happy about the gays, but you go and diss other people's religion?”
When a staff member suggests passing the caller onto producers, the man becomes even more vindictive.
“You obviously aren't going to do anything with it, so I'll just let you guys know... you're a f**ing fa***t dog and Kyle is a fat f**k and is a walking f***ing dead man.”
Last week, Kyle controversially claimed that the Virgin Mary was not, in fact a virgin.
“I thought Mary was his [Jesus Christ's] girlfriend but apparently it was the mother,'”he said. “And the mother lied obviously and told everyone, ‘Nah I got pregnant by a magical ghost’. Bulls**t.
“Someone chock-a-blocked her behind the camel shed... You might believe everything that's written down 2,000 years ago to be absolutely accurate and good on you, you're dumb. Dumb as dog s**t.”
Last week, police were called to the KISS FM studios in north Sydney as Christian and Muslim protesters calling for Kyle to be fired gathered outside.
“As we said last week, we echo Kyle's [apology] and unreservedly apologise for any offence that may have been caused,” an Australian Radio Network said in a statement to Daily Mail Australia last week.
“Last week when this content ran, we immediately recognised that it wasn't appropriate for distribution and it was removed immediately.”
