OPINION: Blood. Boil. Mad. As. Hell.
I expect that is exactly how most Australians felt last night as they tuned in to watch Belle Gibson try to explain away the mess she’s in on 60 Minutes.
To see the latest performance from the lying ‘cancer survivor, ‘wellness crusader’ or whatever she used to call herself was excruciating.
Ms Gibson continued to weave her tangled web of deceit, delusion and downright disregard.
“I felt like I had been taken for a ride,” she told the cameras without batting an eyelid.
It was mortifying and quite ugly to watch.
The duped charities, big corporations, book publishers, app designers and most importantly, those who faithfully followed her teachings could only have been left feeling disgusted.
Social media was overwhelmingly negative toward the 26 (or is it 23?) year-old and the reason for that is pretty simple.
Instead of being truthful and upfront about her giant scam, she chose to continue the delusion.
