Lisa Wilkinson Just Epically Roasted Karl Stefanovic Online
Grab the popcorn and just watch this unfold.
Lisa Wilkinson just delivered a totally savage blow to her former Today Show co-host Karl Stefanovic.
The Project star has added her two cents in to a social media discussion involving some of the country's biggest TV names, and while doing so, delivered the blow on Stefanovic.
The flurry of tweets using the hashtag #LogieTwitterWars was kicked off by Shaun Micallef, Annabel Crab and Peter Helliar.
I contacted that troll factory in St Petersberg but apparently @pjhelliar's got them all working on his Gold nomination again.— Shaun Micallef (@shaunmicallef) 6 March 2019
It's very sad what's happened to our business, Pete. Apparently @annabelcrabb is giving muffins to people so they'll vote for her. Thankfully we two remain the sole standard bearers of professional dignity.— Shaun Micallef (@shaunmicallef) 6 March 2019
PS I think a twitter war between us will help our chances, you asshole.
You boys are SCREWED, just quietly.— Annabel Crabb (@annabelcrabb) 6 March 2019
But it wasn't long before Rove and Lisa Wilkinson jumped in too.
Yeah? Well, I challenge you HelLIAR! I challenge you to escalate this #LogieTwitterWar of yours to include those idiot friends of yours on @theprojecttv (including @Lisa_Wilkinson) and maybe @rove. Also, do you know @julia_zemiro? And @LachyHulme too as he's very easily riled.— Shaun Micallef (@shaunmicallef) 6 March 2019
You’re missing the point, the lot of you. If you really want the Gold, just drink ALOT, then come on air with me, tell me how beautiful I am, and I’ll nurse you through it all. It’s worked before. #LogieTwitterWar— Lisa Wilkinson (@Lisa_Wilkinson) 6 March 2019
Well played, Lisa.
If you're still a little confused, here's just why we love this so much.
Not actually mentioning Karl's name, is classy. We know who she's talking about.
How many drunken slurring moments have there been in the Logies? (Ok maybe don't answer that one!)
Back in 2009, Karl hosted Today's post Logies show while clearly still affected by alcohol.
He slurred his words, and went on to talk about how good Wilkinson looked the night before. This event didn't seem to have a negative impact on his career, as in 2011, he won the Gold Logie - an award which Wilkinson has yet to get her hands on.
We love Lisa's mic drop Tweet so much, here it is again, for your enjoyment!
