Australia’s sport minister Bridget McKenzie appears to make fun of overweight people

Australia’s Federal Sport Minister Bridget McKenzie has apologised for appearing to mock overweight people at a national obesity summit in Canberra.

The deputy leader of the Nationals apologised after being photographed puffing out her face and rubbing her stomach while standing next to a banner advertising Friday’s summit.

“The issue of obesity is a matter I take very seriously and would never triavisie [sic] it – or to add in any way to stigmatisation,” she tweeted.

“I sincerely apologise for this very unfortunate photo taken as I demonstrated how my stomach felt after scrambled eggs reacted w yogurt I had just eaten.”
