On May 9, radio personality Anthony Maroon quit Triple M’s NRL Sunday team following his on-air walkout the week before.

A week earlier, ahead of the Round 8 clash between the Dragons and Tigers, Maroon became increasingly frustrated over jokes made by co-hosts, Paul Kent, James Hooper, and Gorden Tallis, at his expense about the Australian Taxation Office.

Maroon eventually walked out of the studio, mid-program, forcing Kent to anchor the rest of the show.

He prepared a pre-recorded farewell which was played on Sunday ahead of Melbourne’s win over the Dragons, which said “After seven or eight years on the show I’ve decided that’s it for me.” 

On May 10, Paul Kent wrote an article for The Daily Telegraph firing back at ‘social justice hypocrites backing Anthony Maroon.’

Kent wrote, “What has followed Maroon’s walkout two Sundays ago since is a solid distortion of facts where Maroon has somehow emerged as a sympathetic victim of bullying, which suggests a man attacked without the ability to defend himself, writes Paul Kent.

“Most allegations have come from those who have never listened to the show or who don’t have an understanding of what happens every week, making their accusations naive.

“Maroon’s fear of the Australian Tax Office, and that he loved cash jobs, was a consistent joke on the show.

“The pile-on for Hooper, both in social and mainstream media, is ten-fold to what Maroon copped yet none of these mental health warriors have considered that, instead taking comfort in being part of the righteous majority.

“We live in a world of snowflakes, sadly.”
