But not before a few excited Australians could cut her video and deal with the sensational accusations.

One of the young woman’s critics is Australian actress Jane Hamilton-Foster, who strikes back in her best ‘Aussie’ twang.

‘G’day love, Australian here, we all have accents, don’t we. Yours is damn strong,’ she said, letting her broad accent shine through.

‘Good of you.’

And the actress video seemed to get support from her compatriots.

“I love that Americans think they don’t have an accent,” one man laughed in the comments.

“I wonder if she heard herself,” said another.

A third used the hashtag ‘leaveAussiesalone’.

Others said the original woman could be confused by the combination of a broad accent and Aussie slang.

When I went to America, nobody knew what I was saying!!! I had to tone it down,” admitted one woman.

“I don’t think it takes much to confuse Americans,” one laughed.

While a voice coach laughed: ‘We all have accents’ I say at least once a day.’

Others said they thought the “American South” accent was exaggerated in movies until they went to the southern states.

But others sided with the American.

“I don’t speak like this Aussie here, not much,” one woman said.

“I’m an Aussie, and YES, 100%… when Aussies are put on the spot… they definitely exaggerate their accents,” one man claimed.

“If our accent is ‘exaggerated’ around the world with movies and TV shows, I don’t blame anyone for believing it,” said another woman.

Others were disappointed that the original video was made private.

‘Did she delete her account? I wanted to see the comments on that video but can’t find her,” said one woman.

“She’s gone private, dead,” said another.
