Petty Twitter trolls try to get Scott Morrison’s account DELETED because he hasn’t got around to taking ‘Prime Minister’ out of his bio yet: ‘He’s impersonating Albo’
- Twitter trolls pounce on Scott Morrison being slow to update his account profile
- Because he is still described as PM trolls want him reported as an impersonator
- In the pile-on some even expressed the hope that Twitter will ban his account
- Not surprisingly Anthony Albanese has updated his profile to reflect his new job
Scott Morrison’s critics continue to twist the knife by threatening to report him for ‘impersonating’ Anthony Albanese on Twitter because the former prime minister has not yet changed his bio to reflect Saturday night’s loss.
Mr Morrison’s account still describes him as ‘Prime Minister of Australia and Federal Member for Cook’.
This has proved irresistible bait for those still keen to troll him over the Coalition’s defeat.
Scott Morrison has yet to update his Twitter profile to reflect the fact he is no longer prime minister, an oversight that has been spitefully and gleefully jumped on by his critics
Cruel Twitter users have been quick to rub in Scott Morrison’s Saturday’s night loss of office
Academic Dr Claire Corbett was moved to tweet that: ‘@ScottMorrison still has PM on his Twitter bio. Incredible. Liar to the end. Everyone report him! #LNPCorruptionParty’.’
Su Dharmapala, who runs political activist website polipedia.com.au, also encouraged people to report Morrison to Twitter for ‘impersonating’ new Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
She sent a screenshot of the Twitter reporting form where she had started to fill out that Morrison was impersonating Albanese.
Su Dhamapala added Twitter’s box to report impersonators to the social media platform
The call was taken up by former journalist Belinda Hogan who said Morrison was impersonating ‘our PM Albo’
The call to report Scott Morrison for being impersonating Anthony Albanese was embraced by a number of Twitter trolls, who even expressed the hope it would see Twitter move against him
The call was taken up by former journalist Belinda Hogan who said Morrison was impersonating ‘our PM Albo’.
John Drinkwater tweeted that ‘if we report @ScottMorrionMP’s account for false information will Twitter suspend his account?’
Mr Albanese meanwhile has updated his Twitter account to claim the job title.
Anthony Albanese, perhaps unsurprisingly, has been very quick to update his profile
There has been no shortage of bile aimed at Mr Morrison but also his wife Jenny in the aftermath of their defeat.
Australian-born author Kathy Lette received considerable backlash for a tweet comparing a dress worn by Ms Morrison to one worn by a villainous character in the dystopian TV show The Handmaid’s Tale.
Ms Lette’s tweet had a side-by-side comparison of Ms Morrison’s teal-coloured Carla Zampatti dress next to a similar dress worn by the The Handmaid’s Tale character Serena Joy with a caption ‘Gilead defeated’.
Gilead is the oppressive religious state that forces women to be subservient in the show, which is based on the novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood.
The tweet was described by other Twitter users and some media commentators as ‘poor form’ and ‘bullying’, leading Ms Lette – who is best known for writing the teen novel Puberty Blues which was set in Mr Morrison’s electorate – to delete it.
