Jeffreys, right: ‘She might knock him around’
While 2015 may have been the year that the Australian media finally got the message about abuse towards women, domestic violence towards men was still a laughing matter for Nine’s Today show this morning.
Discussing a man who had sent a cheeky WhatsApp group text to four of his ex-girlfriends, presenter Sylvia Jeffreys suggested he deserved to be “knocked around” by one of them.
The Mixed Grill segment, which also featured radio presenters Mel Greig and Brendan Jones, discussed a Brit who scored a drink with a former girlfriend called Gemma after starting the provocative “Merry Ex-mas” chat.
Referring to an earlier conversation, co-host Tim McMillan suggested: “He might be a cage fighter.”
Jeffreys responded: “Hopefully Gemma is. Because she might knock him around a bit.”
Lucky that domestic violence against men is still funny, huh?
