Christian Wilkins tells the troll who called him a disgusting slur because of his eye-catching outfit for Derby Day, “I find this term to be very offensive.”
Christian Wilkins responded to a social media troll after he drew attention at Penfolds Derby Day in Melbourne on Saturday with a stunning outfit.
The cyberbully called the model and influencer, who was 27 years old, “an attention-seeking r****d” and made fun of his outfit, which was meant to get people’s attention.
Christian replied by posting the mean meme to his Instagram Stories and adding some harsh words of his own. He told the troll that the term was offensive because it was a slur against disabled people.
Christian told the troll, “Really, think what you want,” in his post with the screenshot.
“But as the brother or sister of someone with a disability, I find this term to be very hurtful.”
Richard Wilkins, one of Channel Nine’s longest-running hosts, is the father of Christian and his four siblings.
Adam, Richard’s oldest son, has Down Syndrome and is 47 years old.
The troll made fun of Wilkins’ Derby Day outfit as if it were a Halloween costume by using a picture of him in it.
A fake “advertisement” for the look said “tucking tape,” “chicken fillets,” and “Richard Wilkins’ tick of approval.”
It happens after Christian wowed the fashionistas of Flemington on Derby Day.
Christian showed off his sense of style by wearing a headpiece with feathers.
In the exclusive Birdcage enclosure, he also wore a satin top, black silk pants that were too big for him, and shoes that looked like hooves.
He also wore a pair of black gloves that were almost see-through and were pulled up past his elbows.
Christian, who is known for his great style on the red carpet, added a moonstone necklace to finish off the look.
The actor and model had said before that he planned to “break” the gender-based rules of the cup carnival.
