1. Married at First Sight‘s Clare Verrall calls out Sean Thomsen for insensitive comment about Eurydice Dixon.
The post, which has been shared widely, pointed out the flaws in placing the blame on victims and expecting women to be responsible for their safety.
(Words above by Jane Gilmore) “We wish there were fewer monsters in our communities and in our lives but with one in three women experiencing assault or abuse in our lifetime, the numbers say otherwise.” – @miafreedman #RIPEurydiceDixon #InstaWomen #EurydiceDixon #WomensSafety #ThisIsBS #ripeurydice
Fellow MAFS contestant, 34-year-old Sean Thomsen commented on the post, writing “awesome!”
Clare quickly responded to her former co-star’s poorly worded comment.
“DUDE THIS HAS TO BE A BOT! Turn it off bro,” she wrote.
“@clare_verrall nah it’s not aye,” Sean replied.
“So your thought on the rape & murder of a woman walking home from the shops is ‘awesome!’ Um. What the f**k? Why on earth would you write that? Can you please elaborate, as at the moment I am struggling to understand why you would write such an abhorrent comment on this situation?” she wrote.
Sean has yet to respond.
According to The Fix, earlier this year, Clare revealed that she was sexually assaulted at 16 years old.
In 2015, she was left with a broken nose, a black eye and post-traumatic stress disorder after she was violently attacked while walking her dog in Melbourne.
