Aussie broadcaster Alan Jones claims victimhood after Ardern insult causes internet backlash


Australian broadcaster Alan Jones is claiming he is the victim of a vicious social media campaign to bring him down.

It comes in the wake of his comments about Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. He said her Australian counterpark Scott Morrison should "shove a sock down her throat" after she said "Australia has to answer to the Pacific" on climate change during the Pacific Islands Forum in Tuvalu.

It's also been revealed Mr Jones said Mr Morrison should "get tough" with Ms Ardern "with a few backhanders".

But he's since apologised and said he doesn't have a problem with women.

Several advertisers have since pulled their sponsorship from his radioshow, but Mr Jones said he doesn't care.
