ABC summer host Antoinette Lattouf sacked over anti-Israel comments

Antoinette Lattouf, a fill-in host on ABC radio, has been sacked after an influx of complaints from the Jewish community reached chairwoman Ita Buttrose.

Lattouf had been hosting ABC Sydney’s mornings program for just three days when numerous complaints were received about her conduct, including recent commentary on social media that “gas the Jews” footage from Sydney’s Opera House was unverified and accusations Israeli forces had committed rape.

The Australian understands that the complaints over Lattouf’s appointment were raised with Ms Buttrose and the board, with sources close to ABC management saying the chairwoman was “furious” with the decision to hire the anti-Israel broadcaster.

Under the ABC’s social media guidelines employees must “protect the ABC’s reputation, independence, impartiality and integrity”. She was sacked for breaching those rules.
