When influencer and former Bachelor star Abbie Chatfield posted the same clip on her social media site, the situation became even worse.

She went on to say that the people in the clips have allegedly received threats as a result of the video's virality.

She did, however, elaborate on why it's important to call awareness to these instances.

In a series of clips on her Instagram story, Chatfield explained: "Instead of holding people accountable and making sure that people know that it isn't okay...we need to now worry about these racist people being a bit upset that they're now getting hate?"

"We have a huge issue with race in this country and the fact that these people cannot see that their little 'jokes' around Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture ... s*** like this only perpetuates it, only allows it and opens the door for more insidious s***.”

"When you allow this and don't speak out on this it perpetuates the entire notion Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are not worth respecting, which they f***ing are.”

"I'm sick of this bulls*** of gaslighting minorities and this idea that people should be protected after they were racist."
