The criticism over a recent segment on Seven’s Sunrise has been turned up a few notches, with activists gathering outside the show’s studios in protest.

Sunrise host Samantha Armytage was joined earlier this week by controversial media commentator Prue MacSween and Brisbane radio host Ben Davis to talk about a push by the federal government to change adoption policies for indigenous kids.

The on-air discussion was criticised by many on social media, with some describing it as “appalling”, “nationally shameful” and “blatantly racist”. The segment footage has since disappeared off Sunrise’s social pages.

Even ABC telly host Tom Ballard and The Betoota Advocate mocked the segment with their own versions.

Protesters have since gathered outside Seven’s Sydney headquarters in Martin Place, equipped with signs and chanting in disgust.

However, Sunrise producers shielded viewers from all the commotion outside this morning by lowering the blinds on the studios’ windows, and has been accused of replacing the studio view of the protesters with stock footage of Martin Place.
