First Episode Of SBS First Contact Sent Twitter Into Rage

Last night was the first episode of the second season of SBS show First Contact, social media went completely bonkers for the show.

The synopsis is: “Ray Martin takes a group of six well-known Australians with diverse, deeply intrenched preconceptions and opinions about our nation’s Indigenous people on a journey into Aboriginal Australia when First Contact returns for a brand new season over three big nights.

“The participants are singer-songwriter Natalie Imbruglia, ex-One Nation politician David Oldfield, TV personality Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson, comedian Tom Ballard, former Miss Universe Australia Renae Ayris, and actress Nicki Wendt.

“In this first episode, the journey begins in Uluru before host Ray Martin directs the group to Kununurra in the Kimberley, Western Australia, where the Aboriginal community is battling against alcohol, family violence and suicide.”

The Twitter reaction was mainly about Oldfield and his views that Aboriginality has no place in the modern world. Oldfield said, during the introduction of the program, “it’s not actually good for Aborigines to remain Aborigines, they should be Australians and you just naturally let it die out. Frankly it should have died out like the Stone Age died out”.

As you can imagine, Twitter was not impressed with Oldfield:

It’s well worth the watch, click here for the first episode.
