Qantas CEO Alan Joyce Cops Cream Pie In Face At Business Forum

Alan Joyce had a pie thrust in his face

Jeremy McGovern was pranked by Heidi from Heidi, Will & Woody breakfast show who gained inspiration from the man who shoved a pie in Qantas boss Alan Joyce's face during a business breakfast on Tuesday.

What do you think of Alan Joyce?

Approaching Mr Joyce from behind, the man smashed the pie straight into the CEO's face.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce had no time to adopt the brace position before being struck in the face by a pie-wielding protester as he delivered a speech in Perth.

It was later learnt that the pie-shover's name is Tony Overheu, who was detained by security staff until the police arrived to arrest him.

Mr Joyce said Overheu did not appear to be remorseful.

"I have every intention to continue to be vocal on these social and community issues", Joyce told reporters.

The attack, as silly and peculiar as it was, has been roundly condemned by several Australian officials, including Immigration Minister Peter Dutton, who tweeted that perpetrator "should be ashamed".

"Perth will become the western hub for our global services to the United Kingdom and potentially other European destinations in the future", Mr Joyce said.

Joyce was speaking at The West Australian newspaper's "Leadership Matters" breakfast, a series of morningbriefings in which high-profile business figures discuss leadership issues. "I believe he sent me an email", Joyce told ABC News.

"Our family is outraged, my wife is down my throat, I didn't understand that I'd breached the state's Criminal Code and the police are dealing with it".

Mr Overheu says he attended a barbecue on the weekend, in which other people were also "pee'd off" about "special interest groups" overriding the individual and society's will.

He has been charged with giving false details to police but he's yet to be charged with the actual "pieing".

"I believe there has been an apology coming in but I'm not sure there's any regret at the issue that has occurred", Joyce said.
