Malcolm Turnbull Hits Back At Criticism Of THAT Photo

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has spoken to Triple M’s Hot Breakfast about the reported social media backlash over a photo of him holding granddaughter at the footy.

Mr Turnbull's Facebook post of the image prompted a huge backlash online.

The PM was branded "irresponsible" for the photo, which showed him holding his granddaughter Alice and a beer.

“I think it’s the sort of craziness of social media that you see things like that,” Mr Turnbull said.

“I think you have to be yourself. As long as you are comfortable in your own skin, and you are just being yourself. Being natural. That’s all you can do.”

“Anything else and you end up being as crazy as some of the trolls on twitter.”
