Idol error redirects TV fans to porn site

 

An unfortunate blunder has left online fans of TV's Australian Idol potentially accessing a porn site.

An unfortunate blunder has left online fans of TV's Australian Idol potentially accessing a porn site.

Readers following a website link from an advertisement in today's Daily Telegraph newspaper will be in for a very rude shock. Instead of being directed to the homepage of yesterday's Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan, readers will be delivered to an explicit gay porn DVD shopping site dedicated to the work of the 'world's first gay porn actor', Casey Donovan.

The half page advertisement from BigPond Music congratulating the 16-year-old singing sensation on page 13 comes with a URL for her personal webpage, but the URL is unfortunately missing the crucial '.au' that should have been on the end.

Telstra BigPond was contacted for comment, but had not responded by press time.
