Comedian’s political jab generates ‘pathetic’ social media pile-on
Mark Levy has called out both sides of a warped social media trolling event involving the Prime Minister and his wife.
Magda Szubanski sparked the controversy when she criticised a photo of Jenny Morrison as being like something out of The Handmaid’s Tale.
I genuinely thought this was a photoshopped Handmaid’s Tale meme. But no. It’s 21st century Aussie life. https://t.co/S5NckoHv1q

On A Current Affair, the comedian defended her comment, arguing Ms Morrison’s beliefs as a public figure should be questioned, but Mark Levy “doesn’t buy” her rationale.
“I didn’t think it was worth talking about, because I’ve been trolled on social media and I just think it’s pathetic,” he said.
“With all due respect to Ms Szubanski, I couldn’t care less what the values of Jenny Morrison are.
“The Prime Minister of Australia, I care about what his values are, not his wife’s.”
