"You suck!": Gladys heckled in the street by a child
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has revealed she was heckled in the street by a "young kid" who yelled: "You suck!"
Sitting down with Kyle and Jackie O, Berejiklian said she took the taunt in stride.
"It's a bit of fun," she said, as she accepted that such incidents came with the territory.
Berejiklian told the KIIS radio hosts about the heckler after radio host Jackie Henderson said she’d never met anyone who didn’t like the Premier.
“That’s not true,” Berejiklian said.
“The other day, someone yelled at me, it was very funny … I like to walk a lot, and it was during lunchtime in the city.
“There were hundreds of people out there and then this young kid rolls down his window and he yells, ‘Gladys you s-u-c-k’,” the Premier continued, spelling out the word suck.
“I just said to my team, ‘We’re driving on the way back.”
Berejiklian was asked about a number of topics in the lighthearted interview, including her own take on alcohol and cannabis.
The Premier said she’d lived a relatively “sheltered” life and had never drunk enough alcohol to have a hangover.
“I’m just being honest, I’m kind of in the very, very, very, very, very small minority,” she said.
“Like, all my family members have had those rites of passage, which I’ve not had, because I didn’t really, it wasn’t me … I’ve been a little bit sheltered in that regard.”
She also said her views on legalising cannabis in NSW has not changed.
Her government recently shot down a proposed new drug regime whereby the punishment for low-level drug possession would be eased.
“No, it’s status quo,” she said of her opinion on the matter.
