Stan Grant to walk away from ABC’s Q+A show

Date:

ABC host Stan Grant walks off on Q+A saying he’s taken on “relentless racist smut” and “no one at the broadcaster has uttered a single word of public support…I’ve had enough”

ABC presenter Stan Grant has decided to ‘walk away from the ABC’ after being criticized for his coverage of the coronation.

The ABC reportedly received more than 1,000 complaints for its “disrespectful” reporting, which focused heavily on the impact monarchy and colonization have had on Aboriginal Australians and people of color.

“I have been a media target for racism for years and have paid a high price for it. For now, I don’t want to be a part of it – I’m walking away,’ Mr. Grant said.

‘For how long? Don’t know. I’m not taking time out because of racism – I won’t give racists the satisfaction. I’m not taking time out because I believe the ABC was wrong to discuss the legacy of colonization and empire on the day of the coronation. We did that, I believe, with maturity and respect.

Grant also called his bosses at the ABC.
