While not meaning to execute Hanson, Hills said he had meant Hanson should be dangling in a harness against the French flag that was displayed on the Opera House in response to her comments about the horrific Paris attacks.

Hanson had said Australia does not want more refugees, who could be Muslim, coming into Australia. She also said, which seems to have been the crux of Hills’s tweet: “Not all Muslims are terrorists. But all terrorists are Muslims.”

You can watch the Today Show’s interview with Hanson here.

Following this, Hills’s tweeted out:

Hills then tweeted out a series of tweets trying to show what he meant.


Twitter was unimpressed to say the least, leading Hills’s to take to Facebook for a longer apology.
