The Internet has exploded after a Daily Mail article targeted TV presenter Sam Armytage for wearing 'granny panties' and mentioned rumours that she dated her Channel Seven colleagues.
The publication was condemned by the public and other publications for claiming that she 'dared to bare', and criticising her for being 'makeup free'. Now, Australian celebrities have joined the conversation and voiced their support of Sam Armytage.
Despite TV network rivalry between Armytage who hosts Sunrise, and Lisa Wilkinson who hosts the Today show, Wilkinson tweeted to condemn Daily Mail's reporting.
Australian actress Rebecca Gibney also shared her support, after experiencing intrusive reporting from Daily Mail over a selfie she posted in bed. She wrote,
"So I posted a pic a few weeks ago when I was having a sleep in and reading a book (apparently naked according to an indepth article pretending to be journalism)
"Just thought you should know Daily Mail IM WEARING GRANNY PANTS IN THIS SHOT #imwithher @sam_armytage #cutoutthecrapguys #canwepleasestartbeingkind @jane_l_kennedy agree with you totally.
"For those that don't know Sam she is a fabulous, funny, intelligent, glorious woman with a great heart AND she's GORGEOUS. Can we please remind ourselves that people on the Tele deserve a private life? Ok - thanks. That is all."
Bec Judd has also experienced her fair share of criticism from the publication over her weight, and came to Sam Armytage's defence with a powerful Instagram post.
"Thanks Wendy Tuohy and the Herald Sun for calling out the worst excuse for "journalism" I have ever seen. You expect these rubbish stories from tabloid magazines but not from a business which peddles itself as "news".
"How the Daily Mail's behaviour is even legal beggars belief (I could go on with this point). And isn't it unfortunate that most of these stories are written by young women. So much for supporting the sisterhood... pffft. It's a sad state of affairs when the Daily Mail "journalists" have become the biggest trolls of all. #imwithher #dontclickonthatshit #loveyousam"
This is great to see from Aussie celebs - we are more powerful when our voices come together!
