The Real Love Boat Australia 2022 has received serious backlash for its lack of diversity and representation after the elimination of First Nations contestant Sari-Ella Thaiday.
Influencer Fallon Gregory Shares her Support For The Real Love Boat Australia’s Sari-Ella Thaiday
Indigenous Australian influencer Fallon Gregory soon noticed that supportive comments were being removed from The Real Love Boat Australia Instagram page.
She suggested the social media moderators were “strategically targeting” people of colour (POC) and not allowing the community to share their support for Sari.
“They’ve removed every comment under this post that was in support of Sari,” Fallon wrote on her Instagram Story.
“About 20+ comments, some with 40+ likes from mob showing support. Leaving one singular comment left by a non-indigenous person.
She continued: “Not only are First Nations people strategically targeted on these shows, but they’re also stripped of public support from the community, which is our biggest support network.”
Fallon later pointed out that The Real Love Boat Australia social media had since completely turned the comments off on the spoiler reveal post.
“The pattern continues,” she said.
She also shared The Real Love Boat Australia’s anti-bullying post.
“While this statement is completely fair and understandable, none of the comments left by mob under Sari’s departure post displayed any of the offensive intentions displayed above. Only support,” she wrote.
