Kyle Sandilands is being slammed for controversial comments he made about Chinese women on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Tuesday.

The shock jock made the comments after an encounter he had with a sex worker, where he claims he made an unusual discovery.

Yahoo Lifestyle has chosen not to repeat the comments made by the shock jock and has contacted KIIS FM.

Speaking with Confidential, the National Council of Women of Australia President, Robyn Nolan, called Kyle’s comment ‘appalling’ and ‘unacceptable’.

"Such a discussion warrants an immediate apology to all women and Sandilands should be taken to task for his behaviour yet again,” she said.

Earlier this year, Kyle made a series of remarks during an interview with Meghan Markle's estranged half brother that caused outrage amongst listeners, with many labelling them ‘racist’ and ‘disgusting’.

From joking about offering “sexual” services to the Queen, to calling Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland “the black mum”, the station was forced to remove some of the comments when the interview was shared online.

Kyle was asking Thomas about the family’s strained relationship when he referred to Doria Ragland as “the black mum”.

He also suggested women would “open their legs” for Thomas because he has a “princess sister”.

Despite the uproar, the radio network defended Kyle’s comments claiming they were “cheeky” and meant to be light hearted.

“This was a cheeky and irreverent interview in the style that regular listeners of the show are accustomed to,” an Australian Radio Network spokesperson said in a statement to the publication.

“When listening to this interview within the context of the show, it is clear this is a light-hearted and inoffensive chat.”

In September he was forced to apologise after protesters called for him to be fired over ‘offensive’ jokes made about the Virgin Mary.

Among the shock jock’s comments were claims that anyone who believed the story of the immaculate conception was an idiot.

He also made lewd remarks about the ‘real way’ Mary conceived Jesus, while co-host Jackie O protested that religious communities had a right to believe what they wanted to.

Kyle told The Daily Telegraph: "I’m sorry if I offended anyone with my comments."

"Everyone is entitled to their own religious beliefs and I’m fully supportive of that right."
