There’s the fake image building via painful social media – like spaghetti pizza and walk runs – and then there’s there’s the true character moments that go genuinely viral. Video shows PM Bill English apparently ignoring kids’ haka at Pulse netball game in Wellington
A video showing Prime Minister Bill English appearing to ignore a group of Maori school children perform a haka at a netball game has sparked outrage online, with many labelling him disrespectful.
The video shows children performing in the half-time break at the Pulse vs Steel netball game in Wellington, as English seems to ignore them in favour of speaking to the person seated next to him.
He also did not appear to clap at the end of the performance.
“This is the kind of guy we have running the country . . . and who wants us to vote for him come election time,” said Teri Ross, the person who posted the video on Facebook on behalf of her friend.
The video has so far been viewed more than 42,000 times, with more than 500 shares.
Time for another fake meme to try and cover the mess Bill. I hear that dabbing is all the rage at the moment.
