Hit Network radio host Fifi Box made a shock move on Friday which left viewers stunned as she refused to have The Bachelor’s ‘mean girl’ Cat Henesey-Smith on her show.
Fifi told her listeners that her decision to cancel her interview was because she refused to endorse bullying.
'Now, I watched [The Bachelor] last night and I really struggled with this, and Fev and I had already struggled with it anyway [having Cat on the show],' Fifi announced to her listeners.
‘[Cat, Romy and Alisha] have allowed themselves to be portrayed as this by The Bachelor and what is this teaching young children sitting down watching this show,' she added.
'I thought to myself, I can't in all good conscience welcome her on to my show, and if you can't then why are you inviting them on to your show.'
Fifi also criticised Cat’s actions adding: 'Even if that's part of your personality. That's enough,'
‘Their behaviour on the show was mean and nasty. When Tenille [Favois] went off crying the other night I thought 'I'd do that.'
'You know what, let's not talk about Cat again,' Fifi concluded.
Fifi’s brazen move comes after a social media backlash against the ‘disgusting’ bullying.
‘I can't even believe those girls and that they are even still on the show -- it's gone on too long and too far this season,’ Tweeted one angry viewer.
‘The producers have such a platform to empower women rather than validate this horrible behaviour to tear each other down. Romy is a disgusting human & channel 10 should be ashamed,’ wrote another.
‘The bachelor is really trying to empower bullies ay? Giving them so much screen time. Very unhealthy for young women to be following.’
