Brian McFadden Proves Yet Again What A Dick He Is
Don’t expect Brian McFadden to be an ambassador for White Ribbon day anytime soon, with a recent tweet that shows his lack of insight on the topic of domestic violence.
The Daily Telegraph reports the former Australia’s Got Talent judge tweeted “Men who hit women are pathetic. Women who make excuses and stay with the guy are just as bad,”.
Not sure he fully has a grasp on all the issues surrounding domestic violence.
The Daily Telegraph had a domestic violence spokesperson condemning the comments:
Domestic Violence Victoria chief executive Fiona McCormack said she couldn’t understand why McFadden, a father to two young girls, would broadcast such a message.
“It’s really irresponsible,” Ms McCormack said.
“For us to create a safer and healthier community, it’s really important that people in the media … make responsible comments.”
Ms McCormack said violence was the most significant contributing risk factor to Victorian women’s health and lives before they reached middle age.“It’s not a flippant issue, it’s something that we really need to take seriously,” she said.
“Anyone with daughters should take a role in challenging the attitudes and behaviour that allows violence against women to happen.”
Speaking of Brian McFadden’s daughters in the same article it was revealed he will be staying in Australia. He must think his career prospects are better her than in the UK. He no longer is signed to Australia’s Got Talent now it has moved to NINE, and is unlikely to be.
Maybe he is limbering up for a slot on Celebrity Splash, SEVEN’s new diving competition. However it was rumoured he had put Channel Seven executives off side when his then fiancee, now wife, Vogue Williams was on Dancing With The Stars. The other show he or his wife might show up on is Celebrity Apprentice.
Brian McFadden has two daughters in the UK with his ex-Kerry Katona, so it is surprising with his career lull here in Australia that he is not moving back to be closer to them.
