As you said PT. You havent been up on the issue. Price is spot on in exposing her hypocrisy

Her response to people questioning her brother was the crap she quoted earlier and then she doubled down on the reporter by saying.

"The stench of your privilege & serious lack of knowledge when it comes to the commitments this young man has & the impact he has in his community is genuinely flabbergasting."



But Steve Price says she’s hardly in a place to throw stones.

“That’s a little rich coming from the sister of a bloke who just signed a $200 million plus contract.

“You think that people like me and Peter Ford come from white privilege. I don’t, I come from a working-class background.

“Your brother was paid $50,000 for one week in Melbourne to promote Melbourne on Twitter.

“He’s been driving around town in an $800,000 car, and was flown by helicopter the other day to the Yarra Valley. Enough said.”



Staggeringly hypocritic of her and it should be called out

But what does any of that have to do with her brother and what he earns as arguably the best in the world at what he does? Is Ben claiming some privilege?

The sister attacked an "old white man with a sense of privilage"

She's a racist hypocrite

The exchange between Ben Simmons and Peter Ford on twitter seems to only be about Simmons being called a liar, with Ford claiming he refused to show his ID to which Simmons simply replied ''wrong again mate''

The tallest poppy: Ugly truth behind Ben Simmons drama

The tallest poppy.

Ben Simmons is the 6’10” superstar who left Australia to pursue a dream.

He got there. Accomplished something no Australian had before him. And now, the NBA All-Star is being torn to shreds by those who are offended by his success. more...

Well must say I am disappointed in Simmons. Didn’t know much about him other than he was a great basketball talent. Not sure what the motivation behind all the basketball camps was - surely not money. If not then it would have been about giving a bit back to the game over here maybe - if so it seems it hasn’t been all that successful. And then he pulls out of the Australian team after previously committing to it. Seems like he couldn’t care less what impression he leaves - which is his prerogative of course. Just unfortunate from my viewpoint

Hey oneone, what about your mate The Parrot telling Simmons to go back where he came from, channeling Trump.

Simmons was born in Melbourne, he was home.

So that's a 3 then. What a surprise.Wink

I know I'm behind the times. It's not about the facts these days, it's all about the perception. Simmons feels he was racially profiled by the Indian bouncer, despite being treated like everyone who looks young and wants to get into Crown casino - he was racially profiled.You feel like you are a woman, despite your anatomy - you're a woman.Wacko

There are no facts established at the moment. All perception and accusation. The far right media though has typically asserted that they know the facts(or what they have will do) and run with their version.
