London Bureau Chief for the ABC and Walkley Award-winning journalist, Lisa Millar, had a perfect response to one male fan who tweeted she shouldn’t be wearing the same jacket throughout her reporting of the Paris attacks.

Millar has slapped down a Twitter follower who criticised her lack of jacket rotation while she was reporting on the recent terrorist attack in Paris for the ABC. The Twitter user, named as Stephen Blackman, tweeted she should make it a priority to visit a David Jones store to get a “few more clothes”.
