Australian cricketer great Michael Slater has been arrested for an alleged incident of domestic harassment
The cricket commentator was recently fired from his job at Channel Seven following a public attack on Scott Morrison on Twitter.
In May, he controversially accused the prime minister of having “blood on his hands” for closing the border to Australians trapped in Covid-ravaged India.
The retired opening batsman told the prime minister in a series of tweets to get on his private jet and ‘come witness corpses on the street.’wikipedia
‘It is amazing to bring out the prime minister on an issue that is a human crisis. The panic, the fear of all Australians in India is real !! How about you take your private jet and come to witness corpses on the street?
Many have blamed Slater’s behavior on social media for costing him his job at Channel 7, causing his 20-year cricket broadcasting career to come to a complete halt.
Speaking after the incident, the former hitter said that he was “completely overwhelmed” and that he did not pretend to be “disrespectful.”
“The tweets came from a place of sheer desperation and wanting to come home with crying children worried about their father,” Slater told The Courier Mail earlier this month.
‘He got very emotional. We arrived in Ahmedabad and passed a Covid testing site. We saw all these corpses on the side of the road. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. It was such a horrible showdown.
“If I had my time again, considering that I could have had a link with what just happened to me on Channel 7, no, I would not do it again.”
Slater, who worked as a commentator for the IPL, had been a fierce critic of Australia’s policy prohibiting its citizens in India from returning home.
