Gladys Berejiklian spoke in a candid radio interview about the embarrassing moment she recently hit the street in front of hundreds of spectators.
Speaking to KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O on Friday, the New South Wales Prime Minister said she was walking in the CBD of Sydney when a passerby in a car turned down the window to give her some of their thoughts.
‘I like walking. There were hundreds of people in town recently and this young boy is rolling down his window and shouting “Gladys you suck”, ”Mrs. Berejiklian said, saying the last word.

After a kind-hearted rattle from Kyle Sandilands that she was so politically correct that she had to spell something so mild, Mrs. Berejiklian continued.
‘Than [the heckler] just honked his horn and ran away. And hundreds of people just turned around and stared at me … so I said to my team, “We’re on the way back,” she laughed.
When asked by Sandilands and co-host Jackie Henderson if things like that hurt her feelings, the 50-year-old said she didn’t take such comments too seriously.
‘No, I kinda like it … we’re all in public life, you guys for different reasons, and you know we’ve been trying to protect people for the past year and I feel like we’re all in this together, ‘she said.
Sandilands told the Prime Minister that he had never had the same experience.
“Nobody ever yelled at me,” you suck “… probably because they knew I was going to chase them,” he said.
“Yes in your Bentley,” added Mrs. Berejiklian.
The introduction of vaccines and the Prime Minister’s view of speed cameras and the Waze app – which she said she wouldn’t trust to find unmarked speed cameras – were also discussed.

Ms Berejiklian said she had recently had the AstraZeneca vaccine and encouraged others to do the same, saying we should be careful not to become complacent.
‘If we ultimately want to integrate into the world, we have to vaccinate six million people. We have to make sure we don’t fall behind, ”she said.
“If you look at other countries, such as the US and the UK, where the roll-out of vaccines is progressing rapidly, those countries could open before the end of the year.”
