When a fashion model was shot dead, an Australian news outlet took it to heart
By Mark Loughlan EditorPublished August 07, 2018 12:33:40When a model was killed on a beach in Queensland in May, an internet sensation was born.
It was the same story that had appeared on The Today Show in the United States earlier this year.
In a video posted on YouTube, the woman, known only as “Lady Gaga”, is seen talking about her experience.
She tells the camera she was in a hotel room with her partner and a friend when the man shot her, saying: “It’s not your fault, but I’ll kill you if you don’t stop crying”.
Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is best known for her role in the movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
In the US, the clip has been viewed more than 5 million times.
The Australian news website, The Age, was first to report the story and took it in-depth.
Its editors have since taken the story to the media.
In an editorial accompanying the story, they said the clip was taken out of context and that Gaga was a victim of “sadistic” violence.
“In a world where many people see violence against women as nothing more than a part of everyday life, this clip is deeply disturbing,” the editorial said.
“It shows a young woman, who has a very large part to play in the ongoing fight against sexual assault, being shot dead by a man who had been trying to get a sexual act with her.”
The story also reflects a culture of misogyny and the dangerous and dangerous message it sends to young girls.
“In a statement, The Australian newspaper said the video had been taken out-of-context and that “it was a young man who did it”.
It said it had contacted the police in Queensland and had interviewed the young man in question, who had not yet been identified.”
While we are not sure the identity of the man, we do know that his behaviour was abhorrent and appalling,” the statement said.
Lady Gaga has apologised to the woman and said she was shocked and hurt by the incident.
Lady, who is from Melbourne, was not immediately available for comment.
