Carrie Bickmore is known as a well-mannered and respectable TV and radio host, who has received a Gold Logie for her work on The Project.
But on Wednesday, Hit Network radio co-star Tommy Little took to Instagram to show an offensive coffee mug on Instagram that he claimed was endorsed by Carrie.
The environmentally-friendly cup was placed in front of the mother-of-two, and it read: ‘coffee time c***s.’
Approved by Carrie? The Project host Bickmore appears to endorse VERY rude coffee cup while presenting radio show with Tommy Little
Tommy, who also stars alongside Carrie on The Project, shared the photo, writing: ‘This is definitely an approved photo of @bickmorecarrie endorsing @gangstermugs.’
The comedian, 33, added to the sarcastic upload: ‘Carrie said “You can buy one of these mad as keep cups or if you don’t then you’re a fully lame f***boi, the choice is yours!”’
Carrie later commented on the thread: ‘Expect a call from my manager.’
He had earlier posted a selfie from within the studio in a bright-yellow jumper, captioning it: ‘Hi-vis d***head reporting for duty!!!’
‘You can buy one of these mad as keep cups or if you don’t then you’re a fully lame f***boi’: Tommy appeared to sarcastically quote Carrie to help promote his brand, Gangster Mugs
‘Expect a call from my manager’: Appearing in on the joke, Carrie left a message on the picture’s comment thread
Tommy owns the brand Gangster Mugs, which also offer other products with expletive-ridden messages.
His other products online include, a keep cup displaying ‘Tea Time Motherf***ers’, a stubby holder that says ‘froffie time f***heads’ and a wine glass with the words ‘wine time b****es engraved.
Earlier this month, Tommy offered one of his cups to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who politely declined.
‘I wouldn’t take a photo with that!’ Carrie had previously expressed her distate for the items when Tommy unsuccessfully attempted to gift his expletive-ridden products to Prime Minister Michael Turnbull (Pictured: Carrie on The Project)
Carrie laughed and told the PM he wouldn’t want either of them, adding: ‘I wouldn’t take a photo with that!’
‘I’d leave them in the packaging,’ she joked, as he raised his eyebrows in shock at what the writing on the mugs said.
