Kerri-Anne Kennerley shows support to Sonia Kruger following her controversial call for a ban on Muslim immigrants in Australia.
Speaking to The Daily Mail at the 2016 Helpmann Awards in Sydney, 62-year-old Kennerley told Kruger to ‘Stay brave’.
In response to the shocking treatment Kruger has received following her comments, Kennerley said: ‘This is just appalling beyond belief.’
‘I think it’s appalling – with freedom of speech – where people have an opinion and everybody else finds the need to slam someone’.
‘We are living in a democratic country. We do need people to have varying opinions and it should be treated with respect so therefore everybody should have their freedom of expression.’
Yesterday we shared a letter from a Muslim mum has reached out to Sonia “from one mother to another”… Inaz wrote, “I ask you to not limit your love, compassion and understanding to only people who look like you.”
Sonia is quite fearful after receiving death threats both on social media, and via Channel Nine’s offices since her comment.
