“Performative!” Journo Goes Viral For Controversial Woke Tweet

Executive editor at RewireNewsGroup, Jessica Manson Pieklo is going viral for tweeting something quite thought-provoking, to say the least.

The journo tweeted, “Honestly if you’re a white person who says they’re committed to racial justice and you’re in good standing with most your family I have *questions* for you and they are definitely pointed.”

Mason Pieklo went on to tweet, “Full disclosure, I’m in contact with exactly three members of my birth and extended family for this specific reason.”

The tweet went viral and has received over 15,000 thousand likes and over 1,000 retweets. It’s also caused quite the stir on Twitter.

Naturally, the reactions are varied, one person tweeted that she was “brave” and another tweeted that she was being, “righteous.”

It’s always interesting when the journalist becomes the story. It’ll be interesting to see if the publication Manson Pieklo works for will react to her viral moment.

For instance, Nine recently apologised for a journo’s photo post on her private Instagram and ABC recently benched a journalist temporarily for her Twitter behaviour.
