Kerri-Anne Kennerley Says She “Can’t Resist” Making Comments People Might Deem Politically Incorrect

Controversial TV personality Kerri-Anne Kennerley has admitted she “can’t resist” making comments deemed politically incorrect.

Kennerley, host of Network 10’s Studio 10, made the comment on a recent Sky News program The Death of the Aussie Larrikin?, where host Rowan Dean explored whether the “Aussie larrikin” had been killed by political correctness.

The TV host has made plenty of headlines over the years due to her controversial and often-times politically incorrect opinions, including shaming a fellow reporter for her clothing choice, saying Extinction Rebellion protesters should be used as speed bumps, and racist comments surrounding Australia day.

In her interview with Dean, Kennerley said she “can’t resist” making comments most people would consider politically incorrect.

When asked by Dean if she ever self-censors following those experiences, Kennerley said “very rarely”.

She added: “If I’m on Studio 10 and I’m having a cheeky day, and something like (the topic of political correctness) comes up, I can’t resist it.”

She also said her Extinction Rebellion comments were a “joke”.

“Something that I said that I thought was funny, that I thought was a joke, but everybody else who didn’t think it was a joke, who didn’t think it was funny, are perfectly entitled to rail against it. Be completely vicious, that’s another thing,” she said.

“There will always be an echelon of society who don’t really know you and really want to play darts, and it would seem most of those people use social media. And it’s very powerful, but it’s also not as big as the silent majority. So silent majority, could you just speak up a little bit? Just a little bit more? Thanks. It’d be very helpful.”
