A Queensland woman has stirred up debate after appearing on the documentary series Go Back to Where You Came From.
The third season of the controversial show Go Back To Where You Came From hit our screens last night, and a Queensland woman was at the centre of the shows most shocking moments.
Kim Vuga is the administrator of the Facebook page Stop the boat people and had social media users up in arms during the show’s premiere last night.
“Australia is under threat and I would even go as far as saying Australia is under attack,” she said on the show. “The Australian people are sick and tired of picking up the tab for the refugees.”
During the first episode Vuga and fellow participants Nicole Judge and Andrew Jackson were sent to stay with Palestinian refugee Ammar Mershed, who came to Australia by boat, his wife Sanaa and their three children.
Vuga smirked as the family prayed, claimed it was “bullshit” they were stateless in Iraq and told them she wasn’t a “fan of their religion” as she ate at their dinner table.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom for Vuga, who claims she has a new legion of fans thanks to her time on the show.
“I’ve got messages of support from all across Australia,” she told news.com.au. “There’s a lot of people out there saying, ‘Kim, thank you, you speak for me. Please keep doing what you’re doing for Australia.”
Go Back To Where You Came From is a Logie Award-winning TV documentary series, produced by Cordell Jigsaw Productions and broadcast in 2011, 2012 and 2015 on SBS.
The show continues at 8.30pm on Wednesday and Thursday night on SBS.
