Anti-vaxxers are trolling Jackie ‘O’ Henderson in an online barrage of cruel comments after the radio host was rushed to the emergency room halfway through her show yesterday morning.
The radio shock jock, 48, was treated for an ‘infection’ at emergency and has since been released from Royal North Shore in Sydney.

Amid the medical scare, cruel trolls have bombarded Jackie O, with a false conspriacy theory that the vaccine was to blame.
One claimed she was a ‘massive Australian jab pusher’, for her pro-vaccine stance and for receiving the AstraZeneca shot live on air.
Another anti-vaxxer claimed ‘karma is a cruel mistress’, while a third added they had no sympathy for the radio host because ‘she reaps what she does’.
The radio station confirmed in an Instagram post that Henderson had been given the all-clear and would be returning to work.
On Wednesday morning, Henderson shared an update with listeners explaining she was ‘just fighting an infection’.
‘I got a bunch of tests done, and I was there [at the hospital] all day,’ Henderson said.
‘You have to get the ECG done, blood tests and then they check your lungs as well, because those are the two things that cause the chest pains that I had.
‘I’m fine. I’m just fighting an infection and I’m good.’
The media personality went on to say she also ‘got a CAT scan’ before praising the ‘incredible’ staff who took care of her at the hospital.
Kyle and Jackie were preparing to interview Angela Bishop on Tuesday’s show when she started experiencing symptoms.
‘She just stepped out for a laydown. She’s got like a corset dress on and she had an operation yesterday,’ Kyle explained.
‘She also didn’t sleep much because of Intern Pete’s melatonin tablets that kept her up and then she’s been on the Red Bulls this morning.’
Before Jackie left, the pair called Sam Hay, also known as Dr KIIS, to ask if she was experiencing heart attack symptoms.
He told her to check her pulse and said it could be a lack of sleep, but if she continued to feel unwell, she should seek medical attention.
Earlier in the show, Jackie had revealed she had visited her gynaecologist and had a uterine polyp, a growth on her uterus, surgically removed.
