Reality star’s ‘sick’ idea to raise money for bushfire charities
British reality TV star Ryan-Mark Parson has taken to morning television in the UK to suggest selling the fur from koalas killed in the bushfires to raise money for charity.
Mr Parson, a contestant from the UK’s The Apprentice, made the disturbing suggestion on Good Morning Britain.
“I’m not going on this debate saying that we need to slaughter koalas, in fact I love koalas,’ Mr Parson said. “If there was a koala here, I’d hug a koala.
“The idea of this is to raise money for the charities. Now it is very unfortunate. The animals are dead, and if we can use the fur to raise money to save the other animals, I don’t see why that’s an issue,” he explained.
Host Susanna Reid called it a “sick idea”.
