Pauline Hanson temporarily suspended from Twitter over controversial video

Pauline Hanson has been temporarily suspended from Twitter, after bizarre comments made about protesters.

The One Nation leader reportedly published a video to her account earlier today, showing her in an Akubra hat and holding a what looks to be a cattle prod in her hand.

She then suggested the prod could be used on demonstrators in Brisbane, who are protesting climate change, with a pitch for the Queensland Premier.


“When the farmers have trouble getting the cattle up off the floor of the trucks, or in the cattle yards, they just touch them with this and they’ll soon move,” she says in the video.

“It doesn’t matter how big the beast are, they will move with this.”

The video has since been removed from her page because it violated the abuse and harassment rules.

Her account still remains active, though it’s understood Senator Hanson has been temporarily suspended from using it.
