Optus, the telecommunications company you may have seen in the news lately following its disastrous World Cup coverage, has drawn the ire of more subscribers for a series of "Ethnic Dad" segments that are...well...a bit much.
Yesterday – only a day after it had to give up the rights for broadcasting the World Cup for 48 hours to free to air network SBS while it sorted its shit out – Optus Sport tweeted out an Ethnic Dad segment which featured the ethnic dad "Johnny" saying things like how he would like the super power to "Make-a love better to my wife."
Oh, and ethnic dad Johnny also said he would like to play in the goalkeeper position because "he like-a touch-a the balls".
Optus Sport has since deleted its tweet promoting the segment, but people were already slightly distressed with the Optus coverage and so weren't really in the mood for the broadcaster to be pushing its new brand of "funny".
Earlier this week, prime minister Malcolm Turnbull called Optus CEO Allan Lew to discuss the problems with Optus' streaming service. However, there's no comment – yet – from the PM on "Ethnic Dads".
