“Pretty Disgusting!”: Anti-Lockdown Protester Who Breathed On Nine News Reporter Turns Out To Be Aged Care Worker

An anti-lockdown protester who deliberately breathed in the face of a 9News presenter has been revealed to be an aged care worker.

On Saturday, 9News reporter Reid Butler was covering the anti-lockdown and vaccine rally that was being held in Melbourne’s Flagstaff Gardens.

The woman approached Butler and loudly breathed onto his face, in an incident which was caught on camera.

Butler uploaded the footage to Twitter.

The video shows the woman being taken by a police officer who tells her the behaviour was “pretty disgusting”.

According to Butler, it has since been revealed the woman in question is in fact an aged care worker with Baptcare.

“I feel for the residents she supposedly looks after. Sickening,” he said.

Baptcare has since released a statement acknowledging the woman is a staff member. The aged care provider did not make a comment on any potential disciplinary action however.

“It has been brought to the attention of Baptcare management, that [on] 29 May, 2021 a woman, who has been identified as an employee of Baptcare appeared on a television news broadcast, in relation to a story featuring lockdown protests in Flagstaff Gardens,” a statement from the company says.
