Mia Fevola gets Instagram backlash for heading to family’s ‘beach house’ amid Victoria’s lockdown

Social media users have roasted a ‘tone deaf’ Mia Fevola post about the latest Victorian Covid lockdown. 

The 21-year-old WAG had taken to Instagram on Thursday to complain about the latest lockdown, while also revealing she would be taking the opportunity to ‘stay with my family at the holiday house’.

The comments by the stepdaughter of former AFL star and media personality Brendan Fevola were not well received, with one sarcastically commenting, ‘Minute silence for Mia Fevola please. Thank you.’

Another comment was far more savage: ‘I hope it rains & floods your holiday house’. 

‘Poor Mia, must be hard trying to live your life when you’re so tone deaf,’ wrote another. 

While one Facebook user pointed out their own hardships in light of the new hardline lockdown: ‘Sending likes and prayers for her while my business literally disintegrates.’

Mia’s original Instagram post reacted to the news of the lockdown with, ‘Here we go again. This [one is] hitting hard for me, going to stay with my family at the holiday house.’ 

‘Why can’t people just do the right thing,’ she concluded, presumably referring to people staying home as much as possible.  

One critic noted the irony, pointing out that Mia was ‘presumably’ leaving her own suburb to go to her holiday house.

Fevola responded to the online hate with an Instagram Story that clarified she and her family ‘have been living at our holiday house for [the] majority of this year.’ 

‘We haven’t escaped down here, our home is being renovated so we are actually living here.’

She continued, ‘I was coming home from [boyfriend] Jamarra’s [house] to be with my family again, so please don’t attack me without knowing the full story’.

Fevola revealed her romance with AFL player Jamarra Ugle-Hagan at the start of this year.

However, her explanation didn’t garner much sympathy, with one Facebook user commenting, ‘Tough only having one holiday house to choose from.’ 

Another commented sarcastically, ‘1 of their homes is being renovated so they’ve had to live in their holiday house. Oh the horror…’

On Instagram, Mia had at least one supporter, with a fan writing, ‘Saw your story M. F the haters.’

‘Keyboard warriors with no life. You live yours to the fullest as you see fit. So many people in your corner M. Strength in numbers.’ 

However, that user was quickly roasted in the comments, too.

Victoria will enter a snap five-day lockdown from 11.59pm on Thursday night as the number of cases linked to its spiralling Indian Delta Covid cluster climbed to 18.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said he had no other choice than ‘to go hard and go fast’ as the number of exposure sites linked to the state’s surging cluster reached 75.

It will be the state’s fifth lockdown in 16 months, with millions given only five reasons to leave home.

They are to buy essential items, seek medical care, to exercise for up to two hours within 5km of where they live, to get vaccinated or for work and education that cannot be done at home.

Mr Andrews announced the restrictions as he revealed health officials had found a further two coronavirus cases in the community.

The hardline premier used his announcement to make a series of barbed comments about his New South Wales counterpart Gladys Berejiklian after the Delta strain crossed the border between the two states and sparked Victoria’s latest outbreak, as well as to plead to Canberra for financial help.
