Karl Stefanovic has joked about his Channel Nine stablemate David Campbell being too obsessed with making TikTok videos.

The Today host, 48, took a friendly dig at the Today Extra star, 49, for his viral daggy-dancing clips with his co-anchor Belinda Russell.

After a news segment about U.S. federal employees being ordered to remove the TikTok app on government phones due to China spying fears, Karl joked on Wednesday that David was a ‘foreign spy’ because he always uses the app.

‘David Campbell, I always thought was a foreign spy… let’s see how he responds to those accusations in a few hours’ time,’ he laughed. 

His co-host Sarah Abo added: ‘Yeah, him and Belinda Russell, we’re onto you both!’

It comes after KIIS FM host and Karl’s good mate Kyle Sandilands, 51, reignited his feud with David and unleased on the TV host last week, calling him a ‘woke flop’.

His rant followed criticism of David for his confrontational interview with MAFS star Jesse Burford last Thursday

The Nine presenter drew the ire of viewers when he tried to blame Jesse for his wife Claire Nomarhas cheating on him with co-star Adam Seed, smugly suggesting he should have treated her better earlier in the season.

Kyle, who has loathed David for years, said a day later the divisive segment was just another example of him being a ‘flop’ who ‘never has anyone’s back’.

The KIIS FM presenter was stunned by David’s aggressive line of questioning given that Jesse is a ‘nice bloke’ with a lot of public support, and suggested he was blindly siding with the woman in order to look ‘woke’.

His co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson agreed the left-leaning morning TV host had acted like a ‘smug d**k’ during the interview with Jesse.

After listening to audio of the Today Extra segment, Kyle snapped: ‘That’s what David Campbell is like.

‘David Campbell reads a headline somewhere, believes it to be 100 per cent true, does no research and forms a very stupid, immature opinion because that’s what that type of person does.

‘Then [he] runs around trying to protect everyone with no real details. The guy’s a flop. I’ve never liked him. I like Sylvia [Jeffreys, his Today Extra co-host] but I can’t watch her because he makes me physically sick to look at.

‘This is his way of pumping himself up so he’s a woke hero – and no one likes that.’

KIIS FM newsreader Brooklyn Ross said David should have known better than to tear into Jesse like he did, noting how MAFS is highly edited and was filmed months ago.

Jackie also wondered whether he had even bothered to watch the show after the first few episodes, as Jesse’s portrayal has improved significantly in recent weeks.

‘Why are you attacking this guy?’ she asked.

‘I feel like he has seen the first episodes but has not watched the recent ones. He thought he was doing what the public wanted by attacking Jesse, and not realising, “Dude, this isn’t the way to go.”‘

‘He’s out of date,’ Kyle responded.

‘This is what David Campbell does. This guy doesn’t actually have his own opinion; he always does what he thinks people would like, but he really has zero personality.’
