Grace Tame has always divided opinion — from the moment she was named Australian of The Year to her final day in the role.

There's no doubt she didn't behave the way we're meant to at the home of someone hosting a morning tea. Especially when that someone is the Prime Minister.I believe there are ways to garner support that don't always involve getting people offside. But you do have to crack an egg to make an omelette.

Really. What is so fearless about it? If she is so fearless why is she so deafeningly silent over the Mean Girls allegations? HYPOCRISY… Nothing Fearless I would go a far as say COWARDICE. How true Fearless people are mentally strong , polite and engaging….not publicity binging actors Disgusting 🤢 attitude towards Australia’s day of awards.

Grace Tame, please go to China and show your fearless. She looks like she is full of hate It was obvious to all that is not correct. She embarrassed herself and demeaned the position of AOTY. Why are there no male opinion pieces? This is an example of the rubbish journalism as a result of giving a newsreader a microphone.

Bull dust! It was childish behaviour. I found her actions extremely rude if I’m honest. If she doesn’t like been around ScoMo, why did she go in the first place? She had the decision.

Respect for the office not the person Some people just can’t pretend….and in this case…WHY SHOULD THEY!!!! Grace Tame embodies a new generation of fearless females Championing classless disgusting manners, is a whole new level of low from toxic feminist!! Grace is so powerful, all respect goes to her. ScoMo is just a stupid man who has no respect for anyone let alone a woman. She is real, he is fake.

Woke biased trash reporting channel 9! How good is Grace 👍😺 Legend Where's her respect, poor Aussie of the year That’s a lot of craps! What BS to say this behaviour from her is justified! Her behaviour is of a little kid throwing tantrum for no reason, shame on her ! To get respect ScottMorrisonMP u have to earn it. Many of the female population dont respect u so dont go looking for it. U need to be a 'dead man walking' at the next election. Make it happen AlboMP . We deserve a better Gov & PM.

Deborah..you’re better than this. Grace has/had an important message to tell but by being both petty and petulant she has lost her way and most people no longer want hear what she had to say …very disappointing

Grace Tame photo goes viral after frosty encounter with PMA series of pictures of the 2021 Australian of the year Grace Tame in an awkward encounter with Prime Minister Scott Morrison during a morning tea in Canberra have gone viral. 7NEWS Everyone there could smell it.

How immature and childish.

Deb Knight was hopeless on Today and is now hopeless on the radio. What’s next? Of course ScottMorrisonMP would shrug it off like water on a ducks back. Thats the arrogance of Morrison. Lets all pray that Morrison is a 'dead man walking' at the next election AlboMP . We deserve to have a much more compassionate & understanding Gov & PM.

It's not even about being fearless, it's about having had enough. Show respect to the PM! or get out of the government house!!! She is not the First Lady, is she? 🤣🤣🤣💚🍎👍🚼 What's wrong with her face ? Looks like a grown-up version of that little Muppet Greta A new Hollywood star is born, for the role of mischief mouse 😂😂😂

There's no doubt she didn't behave the way we're meant to at the home of someone hosting a morning tea. Especially when that someone is the Prime Minister. In an address to the Press Club, Tame was asked what she thought of the prime minister’s handling of the issue after Morrison said he spoke to his wife Jenny, which helped him understand the seriousness of the rape allegations. I believe there are ways to garner support that don't always involve getting people offside.
