Abbie Chatfield lashes out at Nikki Osborne after the comedian shared a meme that compared Covid-19 vaccines to RAPE


Abbie Chatfield has taken aim at Nikki Osborne, after the comedian shared a questionable meme on Monday. 

The post in question, which has since been deleted, depicts convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein alongside actress Lindsay Lohan, with the caption: ‘The original no jab, no job’.

The meme makes reference to Covid-19 vaccine mandates, and compares them to Weinstein’s ‘casting couch’ crimes.

The disgraced American film producer is serving a 23-year sentence after a jury found him guilty in March 2020 of rape and sexual assault. 

In a series of videos shared to her Instagram Stories on Monday, Abbie began:  ‘I don’t know if you’re anti vax, I will assume you’re not because that would be awkward for a live performer.  

‘Imagine a female in the industry to think it’s funny to make fun of rape and sexual assault victims. Jokes about rape aren’t funny.  Unless it’s about your own sexual assault as a coping mechanism.

‘Have you been sexually assaulted Nicky? If you have, what are you doing? If you haven’t, what are you doing? Have you got a friend who has been raped? Because most people have.’ 

Abbie went on: ‘So for you to sit there and make a joke likening the vaccine that is saving lives to rape… 

‘I don’t know if you’re anti-vax but it’s a ridiculous joke. Likening the vaccine to rape is one of the most disgusting things I have seen in my entire life. 

‘Imagine being so sh*t at comedy that you have to make fun of rape victims.’

The reality star then questioned why Nikki was using her large platform, and fame as the host of Channel Ten’s Just For Laughs, to share such material.  

‘And being a female comedian in this industry, and making fun of rape victims, and still being able to host a TV show… Maybe try and muster up some empathy,’ the podcaster added.
