Kerri-Anne Kennerley doesn't 'give a toss' what her critics think

With a career in television spanning over 50 years, Kerri-Anne Kennerley has been at the centre of numerous controversies.

The 66-year-old has been accused of sl*t-shaming her colleague, and once came to blows with Yumi Stynes after being branded a 'racist' in an ugly TV spat.

In an interview with The Courier Mail on Sunday, the Studio 10 panellist said she doesn't 'give a toss' what her critics think, and that political correctness has resulted in the death of the Aussie larrikin.

'I am who I am and I am not going to change for other people,' a defiant Kerri-Anne told the publication.

The journalist, who refrains from checking Facebook and Twitter, said the only opinions that matter are from her family and friends. 

'Anybody else, people I don't know or don't have the same thought process, like most of those on Twitter, I don't give a toss,' she explained.

Antoinette was seated next to the TV stalwart when Kerri-Anne made a quip about her chosen ensemble.

'Did you forget your pants today?' Kerri-Anne asked, referencing Antoinette's short white playsuit.
