Australia: Must not notice that Aborigines have dark skin

IT WAS supposed to be a nice way to bid farewell to their friends, family and followers on social media, but one comment in a video message has landed Married at First Sight’s Troy Delmege in trouble.

The reality TV star took the controversial clip with his lover Carly Bowyer before leaving Melbourne International Airport to jet off to Bali yesterday.

Uploaded to Instagram stories, the surprise couple known on the show for their goofy antics revealed how excited they were about their getaway.

However, giddy Delmege started talking about how tanned they planned on becoming when he made a strange comment about indigenous Australians.

“Couldn’t be more excited,” he said in the video. “Can’t wait to get the tan on, get some heat on me after being in Melbourne for a few weeks.” He then pointed at his Bowyer before adding: “I’m going to be dark, (but) she’ll be darker, like an Aborigine!”

The video then abruptly ends and it appears that Bowyer quickly cut the clip.

Indigenous activist Tarneen Onus-Williams, shared the video on Twitter and branded Delmege’s comments “disgusting”.

Must always notice that liberal Snowflakes can be easy identified by the constant whining,sniveling and whimpering

This silly part is that the comment was not in the least bit disparaging to anyone so getting upset at that comment is purely making a choice to be offended at nothing

Ah, but Aborigines no longer have to have dark skin.
In fact, to call youself and Aborigine you no longer need to have any Aboriginal ancestry - you just need to identify as Aboriginal, and be accepted as such by the community.
Dark skin does not equal Aboriginal.
