The ABC Network has called the police after Tony Armstrong has been racially abused via email.
Armstrong took to Twitter after receiving a disgusting email and wrote, “This shit has gotta stop,” And then revealed snippets of a vile and racist email he had received via his work email address.
He also added this abuse wouldn’t stop him from, “speaking up or stepping up.”
