Fake 360 Fools 3AW Shock Jock Tom Elliott

3AW shock jock Tom Elliott has once again been fooled by a fake identity, this time by someone claiming to be rapper 360.

The ‘born with a spoon in his mouth’ Melbourne socialite presents the drive program (3-6pm weekdays) on Melbourne talk-radio station 3AW.

Elliott, the son of John Elliott, a former President of the Liberal Party, is not shy about expressing his right-wing views on Melbourne.

Elliott was caught with his foot firmly in his mouth recently when an exclusive interview with the Islamic State Leader Omar Shishani turned out to be a fake.

Now the 3AW shock jock has done it again, chewing out who he thought was Melbourne rapper 360, but who again turned out to be a fake.

Elliott thought he was waving the naughty finger at 360 after the rapper spoke his mind about racism on the ABC’s Q&A program (apparently only right winged shock jocks are allowed to have an opinion on anything). Elliott’s lack of research once again made him look a fool to his audience when it turned out he was chastising the lesser known Brad Kain, not 360.

Once the interview had reached the point of no return and Kain fessed up to not being 360 Elliott aborted the interview. Instead of apologising to listeners for his second faux-pas in a month instead tweeted “Spoke to someone who said on-air and off-air that he was rapper 360. Turns out he wasn’t. We shut the interview down immediately”.

360 (real name Matt Colwell) is one of Australia’s most successful rappers. 360’s two albums ‘Falling & Flying’ (2011) and ‘Utopia’ (2014) were both Top 5 albums in Australia.
