    Aussies Are Trolling Americans Under The "Australia Has Fallen" Hashtag And It's Fucking Hilarious

    "Australian has fallen — the cassowaries are now in charge."

    The year of 2021 has not been overly kind to Australia — with New South Wales and Victoria enduring several months of COVID-19 lockdowns, as states around the country struggle to contain the highly-infectious Delta variant.

    But tighter restrictions across the country have also given rise to groups of anti-lockdown protestors — with a number of demonstrations taking place across Melbourne and Sydney in the past month.

    Of course, the Australian government's strict restrictions and their continued efforts to save lives (outrageous!) have not gone unnoticed in the USA — with several media outlets labelling the rules here as "excessive", "disturbing" and "tyrannical".

    As a result, the hashtag of #AustraliaHasFallen has been trending on Twitter — with ~concerned~ Americans calling for the end of such horrific treatment of Australian residents.

    Naturally, Australians have already come out en masse to discuss what we've really fallen for as a country — here are some of the best responses:

    #AustraliaHasFallen sounds like one of those Gerard Butler movies, only instead of fighting terrorists in the Whitehouse he’s in the worksite break room, fighting off healthcare workers giving out free vaccines for a deadly virus

    Hi everyone reading #AustraliaHasFallen If you're not in Australia and you think we've been overcome by some tyrannical government or the NWO, you've been fed some bullshit. We're still over here happily riding our Kangaroos to work and fighting crocodiles.
