Disgusting

A: There will be cuts to Radio 5 Live, BBC Two’s Newsnight and the Victoria Derbyshire programme will close, as part of an £80m savings drive.
B: Sincerely hope Chris Evans and Gary Linekar are going to be axed or put on a lower paid contract because their salaries are disgusting by a long way.

- Hi everybody! Does “their salaries are disgusting” in this case mean “their salaries are unacceptably high”?

Thanks very much!

Exactly, Steve....an amount so large it is offensive (in the opinion of the person making the statement). You could also say sickening, obscene, obnoxious, appalling, shocking...
