‘Get in touch with your audience’: Tom Gleeson’s message for ‘whinger’ Tracey Grimshaw

Comedian Tom Gleeson has a strong message for those who criticised his controversial Gold Logie speech.

After mercilessly mocking the TV awards show in his Gold Logie campaign, several media personalities ripped into the comedian for his so-called ‘lack of respect’.

But none more so than A Current Affair presenter Tracey Grimshaw, who called him “smug” and “graceless”.

But Tom Gleeson tells Ben Fordham he’s got a message for the haters.

“There were various people who aired their views, and I know Tracey Grimshaw had a bit of a whinge on Channel 9, but I got nothing but non-stop praise from the people who watched it at home.

“So it’s hard for me to feel anything other than pride.

“Tracey, if you’re listening, I recommend you probably get in touch with your audience and what they do and don’t like, ‘cause they think I’m a hero.”
