EXCLUSIVE: Prime Minister Scott Morrison has remained silent over growing claims across social media that his wife, Jennifer, flashed a racist White Supremacist hand signal in a photo with British Royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
A photo of Prime Minister Scott Morrison posing with his family is now at the centre of controversy five months after it was initially posted, with claims that his wife, Jennifer, is flashing a racist White Supremacist hand symbol while standing alongside Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
When contacted by True Crime News Weekly asking for comment this week about the photo, the prime minister’s office chose to not provide an explanation, or even a response to our queries.
The photo in question was initially posted by the Liberal Party to its official Twitter account in May on the day of the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan’s son.
“Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, on the birth of their baby boy today!” the tweet on May 7 reads above the photo of the Royal couple with the Prime Minister and his family.

The so-called ‘Ok symbol’ has just this month been added to an official list of hate symbols compiled by the US-based anti-hate group, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
The ADL states the OK symbol has become a “popular trolling tactic” from “right-leaning individuals, who often post photos to social media of themselves posing while making the gesture”.
Alleged Australian fascist terrorist and accused Christchurch Mosque Massacre murderer, Brenton Tarrant, flashed the ‘Ok sign’ when he was first brought to court in New Zealand to face charges for killing 51 people in March of this year.

True Crime News Weekly has discovered at least two other photos where Ms Morrison is pictured with her prime minister husband in which she appears to be clasping her finger and thumb together. It is unclear if Ms Morrison’s movements with her left hand is a nervous reaction or anxious habit. As the prime minister’s office has chosen to snub our media query, we can only surmise and guess.
The controversy over the photo of Morrison and his wife comes amidst a growing debate about the racist treatment of Meghan following her ascent into British Royalty.

The Duchess of Sussex has been the victim of racist attacks from social media trolls for a few years now over her background and family.
But perhaps of even greater consequence, she has been widely featured in a racist campaign run by sections of Britain’s tabloid media, and one which has been replicated as far field as Australia. With resident Nine buffoon Karl Stefanovic even recently getting in on the chauvinistic and prejudiced tut-tut-tutting act while searching for some form of career relevance.
