Gable Tostee is defending himself against backlash over a sexist Facebook post he shared on International Women’s Day, labelling media who have reported on the story “desperate” and “bitter feminists”.
The Gold Coast man, who was last year acquitted over the death of his Tinder date Warriena Wright, found himself back in the headlines this week after sharing the following status on March 9.
A commenter threatened to forward the post to feminist writer Clementine Ford who is renowned for naming and shaming sexists on social media, to which Tostee responded, "Go on, send it to the c***."

Tostee's vile status has since been derided and debated in the press, prompting the 30-year-old to double down.
In response to discussion of the post on Sunrise by journalist Samantha Armytage, News Local's Kathy Lipari and 3AW's Justin Smith, Tostee wrote on Facebook:
"The bitter feminists presenting this segment are just mad that no men would touch them with a 10 foot pole. As for the dude on the left, who'd he hand his testicles over to?"
He's also accused the media of "bully tactics" and suggested Channel 9 reporters that allegedly showed up on his doorstep must be "desperate".
