Pauline Hanson has been brutally trolled on Twitter for asking people to share their experiences of ‘anti-white racism,’ after users called for her account to be banned.   

The controversial One Nation senator took to Twitter on Friday morning to complain about other users of the platform who tried to get her ‘deplatformed’.

‘A twitter mob is trying to get me deplatformed. I think we can turn their hashtag into a force for good,’ Hanson wrote.

‘Anti-white racism is often ignored because victims remain silent but it is important the truth get out. Use #WakeUpToRacism to share your experiences of anti-white racism’.

But Hanson’s Tweet quickly backfired when users responded with sarcastic examples of ‘anti-white racism’.

‘Finally someone is standing up for the whites! Whenever I go to a sushi restaurant they give me a fork and I WILL NOT stand for it any longer!!!,’ one woman quipped.  

‘I went to Wegmans and they were completely out of white bread. WTF! Is white bread not good enough anymore?’ a Twitter user teased.

‘I ordered a green smoothie once and the guy put it in a paper cup instead of a transparent plastic one so I couldn’t Instagram it,’ said another. 

‘I am also treated differently as a white woman. I was pulled over 3 times in the last 2 months and NOT ONCE were there any guns drawn on me’. 

‘Growing up as a white child in Australia in the 1970’s, watching B&W TV was very confronting. I liked the white bits on the TV screen but I was deeply traumatised by all the grey and black bits,’ wrote another.

‘Asians gave me cutlery at one of their restaurants once,’ said one woman.

But not everyone made light of Hanson’s contentious Tweet.

Some outraged commenters used the situation as an opportunity to highlight white privilege in Australia, and defend indigenous people. 

‘Anti white, or reverse racism, does NOT exist. It’s simply not a thing. White privilege, on the other hand, is VERY MUCH a thing,’  one man wrote. 

‘The life expectancy of Indigenous men in remote areas is as low as 36 years. #WakeUpToRacism,’ replied another.
