Dan Andrews is confronted by a fed-up woman at exclusive Melbourne event - and ... trends now
Former Victorian premier Daniel Andrews has been left stunned after being confronted by a disgruntled woman at an exclusive event.
A dressed-up Melbourne mother approached the controversial ex-state premier at the event and asked to take a selfie.
But just after a photo was snapped of the pair smiling, the woman began to give Mr Andrews a stern lecture about his strict Covid restrictions he enforced while premier - with the draconian measures earning him the nickname, 'Dictator Dan'.
Former Victorian premier Daniel Andrews was given a stern talking to at the National Gallery of Victoria's Gala over the weekend (pictured is Mr Andrews left with his wife Catherine at the NGV Gala in 2019)
The frustrated mother lamented the way Mr Andrews had dealt with lockdowns and how it 'screwed up all our children'.
Melbourne had one of the longest running lockdowns in the world with residents enduring a collective 262 days living under stay-at-home orders.
The city endured six lockdowns throughout the Covid pandemic with travel restrictions and the closure of public parks among the rules enforced on millions.
Onlookers said Mr Andrews kept his mouth firmly shut and copped the heated talking to in silence.
It is believed Mr Andrews then quickly raced off to find his wife Catherine before the couple left the gathering.
The woman told the Herald Sun that she had felt compelled to tell the ex-premier her true feelings instead of showering him with compliments.
The shock interaction was a topic of conversation on social media, with many users rushing to compliment the woman on her actions.
