Fail: Anti-Obama teen wants to move to Australia because we have ‘Christian, male president’
Teenage Republican upset at Obama win
Tweets she wants to move to Australia
Deletes account after being called dumb
BARACK Obama’s “four more years” victory tweet may have become the most retweeted message of all time, but last night one American teenager’s misguided views on Australia were lighting up the twittersphere down under.
Clearly disappointed with the election result, 18-year-old Georgia republican Kristen Neel joined the throngs of American Twitter users claiming they were moving to Australia to escape Obama’s presidency.
Unfortunately, she got a few facts wrong.
“I’m moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says,” she tweeted.
Neel’s tweet quickly went viral as bemused Aussies retweeted it more than 1400 times, many pointing out that Australia actually has an atheist, female Prime Minister.
“Our Prime Minister is a woman, an atheist who lives with a man she hasn’t married. I don’t think you’d like it here,” tweeted Ian Cuthbertson, TV editor at The Australian.
“I think you meant Antarctica. Move there,” tweeted @post_rock0.
“Congratulations on being the dumbest person in the world,” tweeted @Patrickavenell.
