ABC presenter Yassmin Abdel-Magied has been forced to delete a social media post in which she suggested Australians should be thinking about Manus Island, Nauru, Syria and Palestine today instead of the Anzacs.
The 26-year-old took to Facebook this morning to write “Lest We Forget (Manus. Nauru. Syria. Palestine), but deleted the post after being slammed by her followers.
The host of ABC 24’s Saturday morning Australia Wide quickly amended the post to simply say “Lest. We. Forget” and issued an apology.
“It was brought to my attention that my last post was disrespectful, and for that I unreservedly apologise,” she wrote.
