Jacinda Ardern has been confirmed as the new Prime Minister of New Zealand and, unsurprisingly, social media is awash with jokes about her sex life. One of those jokes – which is apparently based on a true story – has now been denounced by her opponent in the election, Chris Hipkins. “It’s abhorrent,” he said. “There’s no place for it in our society.” Ardern herself has not commented on the joke, but she is expected to take over from Jacinda Brownlee later this week.
Jacinda Ardern abuse allegations
One of the first things new Prime Minister, Chris Hipkins, did after taking office was to condemn the abuse Jacinda Ardern has been subjected to. Mr Hipkins also said that he was appalled by the allegations and that they were abhorrent. He added that he wanted to work with Mrs Ardern to make New Zealand a safe place for everyone. The incoming PM’s comments come after it was reported that Mrs Ardern had been the victim of domestic violence in the past. A former partner has since made these allegations public. It is not clear when this abuse took place, but it is alleged that it happened over a period of several years. The new PM has vowed to stand up to any kind of abuse and protect the safety of those who are vulnerable.
Chris Hipkins to become NZ’s new Prime Minister
Chris Hipkins, the new Prime Minister of New Zealand, has said that the abuse Jacinda Ardern has experienced since she was elected Prime Minister is “abhorrent”.
Ardern, who was born in Auckland and became New Zealand’s youngest Prime Minister when she was 33 years old, has been the target of online abuse since she took office. Her critics have labelled her a liar and a fraud, and some have even threatened her with physical violence.Speaking to reporters on his first day in office, Hipkins said that he wanted to make it clear that “abuse of any kind is abhorrent”. He added that he hoped people would take the time to get to know Ardern before making their judgments.
Jacinda Ardern’s response
When asked about the abuse of Jacinda Ardern, incoming New Zealand Prime Minister Chris Hipkins said that it is “abhorrent.” He also stated that he will work to create a safe and secure environment for the Prime Minister and other members of government.
Ardern has been the target of widespread online abuse since she was elected as New Zealand’s new Prime Minister in October. The abuse has ranged from personal insults to violent threats, and some have even suggested that Ardern should be assassinated.
In his statement, Hipkins said that he is “appalled” by the abuse, and promised to do everything possible to protect Ardern and other government officials from such attacks. He also called on those responsible for the abuse to stop immediately.
Hipkins’ statement is a sign of solidarity with Ardern, who has repeatedly spoken out against the abuse. In an interview with Radio New Zealand last month, Ardern said that she feels “disgusted” by the way her opponents are attacking her. She added that she isn’t going to be scared or silenced by the abuse, and plans to continue upholding her values even when faced with intimidation campaigns like these.
