Fauziah Ibrahim Was Criticized For Compiling Twitter Lists
Fauziah Ibrahim had been keeping a long list of trolls under an offensive name on her Twitter.
Her lists were labeled as “Labor Trolls/Thugs” and “Lobotomised sh**heads”. Surprisingly, it was very accessible to the general people.
Following this, the presenter suffered criticism in early April 2022. She was accused of biasness and being an Anti-Labour. Some have even suggested that her Twitter account was hijacked.
Fauziah Ibrahim is just one example. Several ABC figures make no effort to conceal their hostility to Labor. Either lacking insight, or plain unprofessional.
