Ruby Rose apologises over Tony Abbott comments
Ruby Rose has apologised for comments she made about Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
In 2014 in an interview with UK magazine Diva Rose said:
“Don’t get me started on gay rights back home! Our Prime Minister is a sexist bigot. So equality is going to take some time.”
Before that statement in 2013 she tweeted:
“You [Tony Abbott] are like a drunk moron who spills out of a pub and spews on the ground. You are that spew. That spew is you.”
Speaking with Diva again Rose said she regretted her comments about Tony Abbott.
“Going head-to-head with the Prime Minister of my country a few years ago. I didn’t mean to do it and I woke up and it was all over the news and it was like a very big deal - it was all over the papers. I’m sorry. It was about gay rights but it didn’t need to get that big.”
