An old joke but a dangerous one

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



The Bachelorette star Georgia Love has spoken for the first time since the ‘casual racism’ scandal that saw her removed from on-air duties at Channel Seven.

The former newsreader, 34, made headlines for the wrong reasons in late 2021 when she posted a video asking whether a cat was on the menu at a Chinese restaurant after seeing the animal in the window.

Georgia, who opted to stay silent in the wake of the scandal, finally spoke to to Stellar magazine this week to call out cancel culture while also apologising for her actions.

‘I hate the term cancellation. To think that we have the ability to cancel somebody – whether that means from their industry, their job, their family and friends. We don’t have the ability to do that,’ she said.

Georgia said cancel culture is unfair because people aren’t afforded the opportunity to defend themselves in the ‘heat of the moment’.

Georgia also lamented about the fallout from the scandal, telling the magazine: ‘I had my dream job. I felt so lucky every day to be doing what I loved and what I had dreamed of for so long.’

‘So to have lost that on-air job – I stayed working at Seven, but I was taken off air in the fallout – was probably the hardest thing for me, because I’ve always put a lot of emphasis and focus on my work and my career.’

Despite this, Georgia said she never meant to ‘purposely upset or offend anyone’, and is ‘deeply sorry’ for the upset it caused, adding: ‘I’ve done a lot of reflection. I’ve learnt a lot.

Georgia posted the controversial footage in September 2021 while she was visiting a Chinese restaurant in her Melbourne hometown.

Filming a cat sitting behind the window of a the eatery, Georgia wrote: ‘Shop attendant or lunch?!’

Critics claimed the footage was offensive and perpetrated a harmful stereotype about Chinese people.
