This week’s storm in teacup is brought to you by comedy-news-quiz show (we can’t afford individual shows in Australia) Good News Week and Akmal Saleh.
Akmal took the opportunity of national television to go on an expletive filled rant about the people of Rockhampton. This has upset Rockhampton, and the little git has apologised. Too be fair apparently he was punched in the by some woman in an alley who accused him of being a paedophile wog, but hey, who hasn’t?
The ever reliable Morning Bulletin reports Akmal’s version of events at the Rocky Show earlier this year:
The funny man had three days off in Rockhampton and decided to take a camera to the show with his two mates.
The friends dressed in traditional Arabian outfits and did a Borat-esque skit.
The trio was lining up for a ride in sideshow alley when an angry mum confronted them.
“Listen here mate, you’ve got to have permission before you video people’s children,” the woman said.
Akmal said he tried to tell the woman she had it wrong and offered to show her the tape.
“Bulls—, you’re f—ing taping people’s children and you’re a pedophile, you dirty wog (expletive),” she said.
“Go away you idiot,” Akmal said before she punched him in the nose.
She whacked him again, “full-on punches” to his face.
“We just bolted,” Akmal said.
“I thought if we stayed we’d be lynched.”
