Lisa, who is the ex-wife of One Nation co-founder David Oldfield, began her post by praising the 2022 Australian of the Year Dylan Alcott, writing: ‘Thank God we finally have an amazing and inspirational #Australianoftheyear!’

‘Dylan Alcott you are an inspiration to us all and every time I see you play or hear you speak I am so proud to be an Australian. So well deserved and you really are a bloody legend.’

She added: ‘Conversely @tamepunk… you made it all about yourself and carried on like a prat and a self-centred brat!’

One of Lisa’s followers hit back, replying: ‘Pretty rich coming from someone who had a platform to highlight [important] issues on a television series and yet acted like a prat’. 

The user was referring to Lisa’s controversial stint on Arena’s Real Housewives of Sydney in 2017, in which she famously clashed with other stars. 

Lisa promptly responded to the user: ‘I won a local Australia Day award in 2018 for raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for wildlife rescue and then used my profile to raise another $250K that year, so actually I’m quite pleased with my achievements.’

It comes after Australian of the Year Grace couldn’t disguise her contempt for Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday when the pair reunited at the end of her year-long reign in the honorary position. 

The awkward and tense moment followed a year when Ms Tame used her platform to criticise the Morrison government and Australian society repeatedly.

Her antagonism began on the very day she was awarded the prestigious AOTY title last year.

She took a dig at Mr Morrison before she had even accepted her award, mocking him about climate change on Instagram.

She later expressed outrage at remarks the Prime Minister had whispered in her ear.

The 27-year-old was given the honour for leading a campaign for a legal change that allowed sex abuse survivors to speak out.

She had been groomed and molested as a schoolgirl by one of her teachers.

Having given a speech at the ceremony, she was surprised by the PM’s reaction and went public with it.

‘Do you know what he said to me, right after I finished that speech and we’re in front of a wall of media?’ the Tasmanian later told a podcast.

‘I s*** you not, he leaned over and right in my ear he goes, ‘Well, gee, I bet it felt good to get that out’.’
