Madden storms out of interview after seeing obscene photo

GOOD CHARLOTTE stars BENJI and JOEL MADDEN stormed out of a live radio interview in Australia after taking exception to an obscene photo of BRITNEY SPEARS.

The siblings were in the Fox 101.9 studios Down Under to speak on a morning show when they were asked to play a game to test if they had a telepathic twin connection.

Benji donned an eye mask while his brother was handed the notorious snap of Spears stepping out of her car without underwear - which failed to amuse the rocker.

Blindfolded Benji guessed that Joel was annoyed, prompting his brother to rant, "I think I'm pretty laid back dude, but you guys are getting on my nerves."

The radio DJs attempted to move along with another challenge, but the duo walked out as listeners heard a clearly irritated Joel announce, "We're outta here."

Joel, who has two children with Nicole Richie, then took to his page on to vent his frustration, writing: "Just walked out of a FOXfm interview in Melbourne - not in the mood to be a clown.

"Most of the time I can put up with idiot morning show hosts but not today. I guess I have finally found some Aussies I don't get on with."

The frontman is said to have told producers he was offended by the shot because he is a father.
