NEWCASTLE FAN AND BROADCASTER LYNSEY HIPGRAVE CUTS OFF CALLER WHO CALLED HER 'DARLING'.

Paul Greenwell: "We live in an era now where all the words such as Pet, Darling and Love are unacceptable to use. I'm a Geordie and proud of it and those three words I use all of the time."

Chris Hughes: "It's still a term of affection or just being plain friendly. There was clearly no sense of malice or patronising tone in his voice."

Becky Summers: "I call people love, pet, dear. There's worse things to be called."

Olive Benson: "Some people are offended when called pet, etc and I thought there were a lot more of us about. I certainly know many people who would be offended by being called pet, darling etc and find it offensive. I am quite shocked by the number of comments on here decrying this reporter, she's entitled to her opinion. My answer would be I am not your darling!" Carla Marie Waite: "I think if he'd said love once that was fine, he continued with darling and love again and he just sounded like he was being demeaning. So I tend to agree with her in this instance.

Helen Hope: "Feel sorry for Gareth, who she obviously offended by cutting him off. He clearly had no intention of offending anyone."
