Multi-cultural billboard causes national outrage!
A billboard depicting two smiling Muslim girls with the Australian flag has been removed after threats were made against the company behind it.
The digital sign featured rolling images of people from various cultural backgrounds, however the the picture of two Muslim girls celebrating Australia Day caused a national outrage.
One Facebook user commented: “This is f**kin shit. Take the s*** down and replace them with full blood real Aussie’s [sic] or anything Aussie related. U no people playing cricket at the beach, BBQ, thongs, beer. Anything but this… I thought Australia Day was meant to be about OUR culture like it used to b, not about Muslim people.”
Another Facebook user said the billboard indicates Australia “is now a Muslim country” and that it is directing all women to wear hijabs.
“Let’s put real Aussies on the posters wearing expected Aussie gear, not clothes dictated by men in a foreign land. Let’s get Australia back to being Australian!”
The billboard also copped the ire of Pauline Hanson who is calling for the burqa to be banned in Queensland.
It’s kind of ironic that One Nation’s ethos insists that Muslims who arrive here should “assimilate to our way of life,” but when they try to, we tell them to fuck off anyway.
