Earlier this morning Sonia Kruger was at the centre of heaps of social media backlash after she said on national television she wanted Muslim Migration to be banned in Australia.
Kruger said on Channel 9’s Today ‘Personally; I would like to see it stop now for Australia – because I want to feel safe as all of our citizens do when we go out to celebrate Australia Day’.
When Lisa Wilkinson asked Kruger is she would like to see Muslim migration banned in Australia she said ‘yes, yes I would.”
After Kruger came off the air, following a presenting stint on Today Extra, she took straight to social media to defend herself saying ‘’Following the atrocities of last week in Nice where 10 children lost their lives, as a mother, I eleven it’s vital in a democratic society to be able to discuss issues without being labelled racist.”
