Sunrise host Samantha Armytage lashed out at several media outlets for reporting on her personal life in an Instagram rant on Monday - before making an embarrassing edit. 

In the 43-year-old journalist's initial post, she furiously urged her followers to boycott The Sunday Telegraph over its 'rubbish journalism', despite the fact she is paid to write a weekly column for the newspaper's weekend magazine, Stellar. 

But after presumably remembering her weekly pay cheque from News Corp, she quickly removed all references to the publication from her fiery post. 

Oh, dear! Sam Armytage has slammed a newspaper for reporting about her personal life, before editing her post to remove an embarrassing gaffe

Sam's initial post read: 'The silliness around my private life in the tabloids right now has reached peak stupidity. I ask you all to ignore (& not buy!) Woman's Day, the Daily Mail and The Sunday Telegraph. 

'The "sources" quoted are made up. It's rubbish "journalism" and should be illegal. Paparazzi sit outside my house and follow me around town all day.

'It's so boring for me, and no doubt for you too. Thnx, Sam x.'

After deleting and re-uploading the post, the reference to The Sunday Telegraph was deleted, with her frustrations directed solely at Woman's Day and Daily Mail Australia.

Whoops! In Sam's original Instagram post (pictured), she furiously urged her followers to boycott The Sunday Telegraph over its 'rubbish journalism', despite the fact she is paid to write a weekly column for the newspaper's weekend supplement, Stellar magazine
