Yassmin Abdel-Magied certainly created outrage on social media over a comment she made on Facebook on Anzac Day earlier this year.

Posting the traditional words Lest We Forget, the former ABC presenter then added in brackets – Manus.Nauru.Syria.Palestine.

The comments caused such a backlash at the time. Her show was cancelled and she left Australia for the UK, claiming she was traumatised by Australia’s hate toward her.

It seems that experience hasn’t stopped her making comments about Remembrance Day. 

Taking to Twitter yesterday she’s made an almost identical comment, instead this time the #LestWeForget only included the extra word Manus, with a link to post from the UN Refugee Agency.

She also go the same response from the world about the comment.

“Absolutely disgraceful. I’m convinced now that your point is to be disrespectful and distasteful,” one person wrote, while others described her as being self-centred and using the comments for a publicity stunt.

With some of the replies Yassmin was also reminded about the apology she made for her Anzac Day comments. She not only amended the post that time but she said it was brought to her attention that what she wrote then was disrespectful, and apologised unreservedly.

She did have some supporters for her post, but there were even a few who admitted to being on her side previously, weren’t this time.
