The ABC has cheekily mocked a recent segment on Seven’s breakfast show last week which drew widespread backlash online and via a protest outside its Sydney studios.
Protesters were equipped with signs and chanting in disgust, forcing Sunrise producers to lower the blinds on the studios’ windows and running stock footage of Martin Place to block the protest from viewers.
ABC telly host Tom Ballard and The Betoota Advocate mocked the segment with their own versions.
