Co-host of Channel Nine’s flagship program Today, Lisa Wilkinson, has gone on the offensive against some online critics who took umbrage with a tweet she sent out.

During a speech of Former Prime Minister John Howard where he defending his decision while PM to send Australian troops to Iraq, Lisa sent out this tweet:

The tweet caught fire online resulting in many firing back at Lisa over some of the other choices that John Howard made while he was in the top job.

Lisa even got into a “twitter fight” with one of her critics

After reading what must have been hundreds of tweets about the “offending” tweet, Lisa decided to make a statement to all of her critics.

Many are still tweeting at Lisa over the remark but like many comments made on social media, it will be forgotten as soon as someone else makes another comment.

What do you think about Lisa’s comments? How do you feel she handled the situation? Did you approve or think it was unprofessional?

    Think if you take a political stand nowadays, you almost expect a tirade of comments.. If you’re going to be thin skinned and let it worry you, don’t join in the conversation. Mind you its one thing to disagree with someone another to use abuse and bully them.

    Why don’t people just get a life and STOP hanging on everyword that is spoken off the cuff.
    Would they rather she was like a Robot reading from a script..
    EVERYBODY is entitled to an opinion Right or wrong Who decides??????
