A recent anti-racism campaign advertisement features Australian celebrities saying Australia needs to do more in regards to the problem of racism.

“I’ve never been a fan of those ad campaigns where we moral lectures from all these celebrities … I don’t like the hypocrisy,” Mr Bolt said.

“When it comes to Australia of course I know there are racists, there are in every country, it’s the human condition unfortunately.

“But of all the countries I’ve lived in and I’ve travelled in, I couldn’t think of one that is less racist than this, certainly not racist in the way this ad claims.

“I think in part … claiming to fight perceived racism is really a power grab, it’s an industry … it’s a way to seem good.”
