Viewers OUTRAGED after The Project’s segment mocked someone’s speech
The Project has made the news again for all the wrong reasons. They released a short segment which was purely to mock the way a miner spoke. The panel showed an image of the mining CEO Geoff Summers and described how they thought the man would sound. After playing a clip of him speaking in Tasmania, Tommy Little, proceeds to mock the way he speaks, unable to comprehend that he speaks with a higher voice than he would have thought. Rove McManus also joined in with the joking.
After this segment aired, viewers took to Twitter to release their anger, with one user calling The Project panellists “bullies” and other stating the blatant “double standards” of mocking a man’s masculinity.
