Foxtel personality Charlotte Dawson has deleted her Twitter account amid media criticism of her appearance at FOX Footy’s Brownlow Red Carpet Footy Fashion Police.
Dawson joined Melissa Hoyer, Peter Morrissey and Alex Perry outside Crown on Monday night, commenting on the fashions worn by WAGs at the AFL trophy night.
But yesterday the Herald Sun reported, “The program, which critiqued the Brownlow WAG fashions, has been slammed by some viewers for being too harsh.
“Viewers took to Twitter to criticise Dawson, who complained of cyber bullying late last month.”
The newspaper quotes a number of tweets questioning the show’s tact, including from AFL guests, but acknowledges Footy Fashion Police is based on Fashion Police hosed by US comedian Joan Rivers.
“Never said one negative thing, maybe you were watching another show,” Dawson tweeted in reply.
“It was very positive, nobody was harassed, threatened or invited to die.”
Since then Dawson has deleted her Twitter account MsCharlotteD, which was at the centre of recent headlines about online bullying. She was admitted to hospital after an attempt on her life, but also have interviews to 60 Minutes and appeared recently at Nickelodeon’s Slimefest.
While the Herald Sun reports on the Fashion Police reactions, sister newspaper the Daily Telegraph, which has led a campaign against “Twitter Trolls” does not appear to have reported the same story.
