The COVID World post date: January 11th, 2022
A leaked video from 7News Melbourne shows presenters Rebecca Maddern and Mike Amor trashing Novak Djokovic during a broadcast on Tuesday. The presenters questioned the legitimacy of Djokovic’s positive COVID-19 test result on December 16th, which formed the basis of his application for a medical exemption for the COVID vaccine.
The two anchors were discussing the controversy surrounding Djokovic after a judge ruled on Monday that the decision by Australian Border Forces to revoke his visa should be overturned.
After the segment, the pair kept talking about Djokovic during an ad break, when they shared their true, expletive-laden feelings about him. The cameras were still rolling and the footage has since been leaked online.
The leaked conversation in full (video below):
Rebecca Maddern: Whatever way you look at it, Novak Djokovic is a lying, sneaky a***hole.
Mike Amor: Yeah he’s an a***hole. He is an a***hole.
RM: Like whatever way you look at it.
RM: It’s unfortunate that everybody else stuffed up around him.
MA: That’s it. I mean, he’s an a***hole.
RM: Like, to go out when you know you’re COVID positive– Well, I don’t think he was even COVID positive.
MA: He gave a bulls*** f***ing excuse, didn’t he, fell over his own f***ing lies, which is what happens, right? That’s what happened.
RM: And him now ticking that he didn’t go to Spain, it’s just like…
MA: Yeah, but I think he’s gonna get away with it.
RM: Well he is gonna get away with it, but he’s…
MA: I think most fair-minded people would say the bloke’s an a***hole. Did they do the right thing by him? I don’t know.
RM: No, I don’t think so.
MA: They f***ed it up. That’s the problem, isn’t it?
RM: I don’t think anything was gained by putting him in an immigration hotel.
MA: No I don’t think so, but the trouble is, how do you justify a person who is on the same plane with him who also has…
RM: He can’t justify it. But the fact is life is never fair. Some people fly first class and some people… do you know what I mean? It’s never fair.
MA: Yeah, but that poor Czech girl that was f***ing sent home, hunted down and sent home.
