Australian Nine Network journalist Alex Bernhardt just had an interview request turned down in epic fashion — by having a cigarette stubbed out on her face.
A 23 year old woman has been charged with public nuisance following the incident. She was at Caboolture Magistrates Court supporting a friend of hers who was charged with murder:
Obviously it’s not cool to put out your cigarette on anyone’s face, but at the same time it’s not really cool chasing someone down the street and shoving a microphone in their face either (even if that person is an undesirable). Bit of a boss move as far as rejecting reporters goes. You can bet Alex Bernhardt’s reflexes are going to be on ultra mode from now on.
