‘Why is he standing about like a fool behind Scotty?’ Viewers slam Guy Sebastian for attending Scott Morrison’s arts funding announcement – and claim he doesn’t represent ‘struggling artists’
Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a $250million arts package to help revive the entertainment industry as COVID-19 restrictions ease on Thursday.
And Guy Sebastian made a surprise appearance at the conference, thanking the Prime Minister after he announced the news.
But viewers were not too pleased and swiftly criticised the Australian singer, 38, for speaking at the funding announcement, claiming he doesn’t represent ‘struggling artists’.

Another said: ‘Why is Guy Sebastian standing about in political statements like a fool behind Scotty? Was unaware he was such a supporter of the LNP.’
‘That’s it, I’m never buying another Guy Sebastian album or going to his concert,’ one wrote.
‘Guy Sebastian just got political… He’s sold-out his Arts sector colleagues by publicly supporting the PM – a bloody stupid move,’ another person commented.

While some people criticised The Voice co-judge for supporting the announcement, others praised him.
‘Guy Sebastian holds his own opinions on government decisions and people are yet to ask his reasoning before attacking him,’ one wrote.
Another said: ‘Imagine cancelling Guy Sebastian because of his own political views which every person in Australia is entitled to have. You guys are so f**king petty.’
