Must be ratings time for Auckland radio, DJ sends snap of his cock to sports chick

It must be ratings time for Auckland radio, I say this for two reasons…John Drinnan said it is in his column and Dom Harvey has “mistakenly” snapchatted his cock to someone.

A popular radio DJ accidentally sent a photo of his genitals to a Kiwi Paralympian – and appears likely to get away without disciplinary action.

The Edge morning host Dom Harvey sent the photo to London Paralympic gold medallist Sophie Pascoe through the Snapchat social media tool, which shows a picture for a set length of time before disappearing, so the viewer cannot keep it.

Harvey says the picture was intended for his radio producer Sophie Hallwright and he immediately apologised to Pascoe – who was in Canada, competing at the IPC Championship swimming meet.

Pascoe tweeted about the incident before winning gold in the 100m freestyle in world record time. “Just finished eating dinner and opened Snapchat. #awkward surprise.”

I call bullshit on that story. For a start you can’t just snap chat anyone, randomly…you both have to have it and both have to have given permission for each other to “snap”. Their FAQ specifically says this.

You control who receives and views your Snaps by selecting recipients in the “Send to…” screen.

So, Dom Harvey and Sophie Pascoe have snapchatted before.

Snap Chat is the app version of Chatroulette…no good comes of it. Oh and contrary to reports about not being able to save images…wrong again.

      That does nothing! Didn’t you read the Herald article? There is no way to save what you see on your screen!

      I hardly think the New Zealand Herald is going to publish any old rubbish without fact checking it. It’s not like they don’t know what they’re doing you know.

      • OrphanIsland

        start mspaint and CTRL-V M8!

        • Michael

          Have you read the Herald article? They said that does nothing, so no point in trying. They’re more than fish and chip wrapping.

          • OrphanIsland

            Nah I’ve been myspacing recently.

      • Want a bet…iPhone screen shot easy as shit…again from their FAQ

        “What if I take a screenshot?

        Screenshots can be captured if you’re quick. The sender will be notified if we detect you have taken a screenshot.”

      • Galaxy S3 swipe your palm across the screen and there you have it, a screenshot.

        This is a well documented weak point of snapchat.

  • Teletubby

    Can’t understand why the media and his employers have accepted his claim that he meant to send it to his producer as if it would have been far more appropriate to send a pic of his dick to her

  • Gungadin

    Wonder what the reaction would have been if it was Jay-Jay , snapping her Ver-JJ and sending it to a male , all too sad really …

  • Cadwallader

    A few years ago there was a graphic on this very blog which was a game where you could boot Mallard in the butt. It is time it was reprised having the PM boot Campbell up the arse daily.

    Michael You can easily save pictures from snapchat. Just take a copy of the screen (eg on an iPhone you press the home button and the button on the side that turns the screen off at the same time). The person sending the snapchat gets a notification if you do this though.

    There are also apps you can download which will save snaps without sending the notification (I think one is called snap save).

    Also in reponse to the post you don’t have to both agree for someone to send snaps. there is an option to limit who can send you them, but by default it is set to everyone. So potentially if he had her number as a contact, snapchat would bring up all contacts with snapchat and he could pick her accidentally and she would get it. Even if they had snapchatted before that doesn’t mean she wants a picture of his ‘pork sausage’ anyway.

    I think the more interesting question is why was he sending the pxt to his producer.

  • Patrick

    Got to wonder why a bloke would think it acceptable to send a picture of his cock to anyone. Just seems a bit weird to me.

    • Rex Widerstrom

      Because these moronic mouth breathers are hired by network bosses who know nothing about the medium and encouraged to be “outrageous” as a substitute for having any talent or ability.

      Sat at home, bereft of even the slightest inkling of how to create on air content that anyone other than a coma patient would stop to listen to, our hero is idly scratching his genitals when an “idea” occurs…

  • drummerboy

    1. He could have done it accidentally because both woman were called Sophie and would appear next to each other in the snap chat contacts.

    2. Why the hell is he sending photos of his dick to his producer?

    3. Why is the herald comparing a shock jock/comedian pop music radio host to a perverted american politician Anthony Wiener who have nothing to do with each other.

    4. I don’t think he should lose his job or be punished because of the type of show that he hosts. He’s not exactly a Michael Laws etc, He just talks celebrity gossip and plays hip hop and pop music.

    5. No doubt t Sophie Pascoe’s swimming trip to Canada was funded to a large extent by the tax payer. (i could be wrong though)

    • Rex Widerstrom

      He’s not exactly a Michael Laws

      It’s come to this now, has it? When a New Zealander wants an example of a public intellectual and the best they can dredge forth is Michael Laws?

      Christ even the Yanks could muster Paul Krugman or Thomas Friedman or Paul Wolfowitz or Francis Fukuyama or Steven Levitt or someone, and the Brits have the likes of Richard Dawkins and Niall Ferguson. The Canucks have Michael Ignatieff, Charles Taylor and Steven Pinker.

      Even the Australians have Peter Singer and J. M. Coetzee (though they stole him from the South Africans)…

      And alongside these colossi of intellect stands… Michael Laws? I think not.

      Short version: “What’s the difference between Dom Harvey and Michael Laws?” “Format”.

      • drummerboy

        all i did was use the example of Michael Laws because it was first example of a talk back host i could think of. If he did such a stunt there would be a harsher response than the response to dom. Dom is paid to be an ass, laws wasn’t. chill out.

        • Rex Widerstrom

          Sorry drummerboy, my comment was meant in jest, not an attempt to criticise you.

          Dom is paid to be an ass, laws wasn’t.

          You mean he does it for free? :-D

  • Mr_V4

    Snap Chat is the app version of Chatrouletteā€¦no good comes of it.

    What is this the moralising hour?

  • Daniel

    The Edge radio station. Hmm.

    • Travis Poulson

      For teens and halfwits.

      • Rex Widerstrom

        I think you’ve overestimated by half a wit.

  • GazzW

    I wonder how flippant the comments would be if the dick-snapper had been a teacher or a priest rather than a DJ. Crucifixion anyone?

  • Harvey Wilson

    Technology.

    I grew up in a house that had only one telephone, and that had a dial. No microwave ovens, video players, computers or even calculators. Our cameras used film, and it cost shitloads and took about a week to get your 12 shots developed. Our TV had one channel.

    The technological advancements that have so far happened in my lifetime are astounding but completely unnecessary. This fuckwit DJ proves it.

    We’ve got the internet – which mostly gets used for porn (apparently) (uh hum, so they say)
    We’ve got Google Earth – which we use mainly to look at our own houses.
    And we’ve got digital cameras built into our smart phones that enable us to take photos of our dicks and send them around the world to people who don’t want to fucken see them.

    I can only wonder what incredible inventions are still to come.

    Sick and debased. Both should be fired. No wonder NewstalkZB is No 1.
