The 19-year-old admitted she didn’t understand her reference, thinking it stemmed from a meme.
However, the phrase actually references one of the most infamous criminal cases in Australia’s history in which Lindy Chamberlin was wrongfully imprisoned over the death of her two-month-old daughter.
Ms Chamberlin was later released and compensated when a coroner ruled a dingo had killed Azaria.
