Channel Ten has been slammed for a ‘bloody disgraceful’ tweet about Bernard Tomic’s departure from I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

After the tennis star was confirmed to have left the series on Tuesday night, Channel Ten’s official Twitter account tweeted: ‘Tomic quitting … something sounds very familiar here… we can’t place it.’ 

The tweet was swiftly slammed for being ‘mean and unprofessional’ before it was deleted from Ten’s Twitter account, the Herald Sun reported. 

‘That’s really mean and unprofessional’ Channel Ten slammed for ‘bloody disgraceful’ now-deleted tweet about Bernard Tomic quitting I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

On Tuesday’s episode of The Project, I’m A Celebrity host Julia Morris confirmed Bernard had left the jungle, calling him a ‘quitter’.

He left the jungle after just three nights, saying the exit words ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’ after struggling in a tucker trial.

Responding to Channel Ten’s tweet about Bernard quitting one person tweeted:  ‘Disgraceful tweet. I’m no fan of his, but you seem to have either made a real error putting this kid on … or, you did it on purpose knowing the train wreck that could ensue. Either way, shame on you.’

‘That’s really mean & unprofessional. Where’s your duty of care? If you were really listening, you would of heard he was crying out for help but as usual you’re only interested in the ratings & $$$! Very disappointing channel 10,’ another viewer wrote in reponse.  

‘This tweet is bloody disgraceful. Clearly the time for him to have some arms wrapped around him and given help not publicly mocked by the channel that put him there,’ one person tweeted. 

The tweet was later deleted, with Channel Ten tweeting out: ”’I just want you to be happy” – @drchrisbrown ❤️ #TomicWalks #ImACelebrityAU.’
