Social media users kicked up a storm for Shelton's apparent disregard for border closure and people's safety.

This then prompted Queensland Police to investigate Shelton's apparent violation of the COVID rules in place.

'We are aware of this tweet and making further enquiries,' they tweeted in response. 

Twitter users called for a harsh penalty if Shelton is found to have actually breached rules and called on the police to check his phone location.
