TV legend Kerri-Anne Kennerley says Yumi Stynes misunderstood her comments surrounding an Invasion Day protest on the Studio 10 program Monday morning.

Ms Kennerley tells Ben Fordham her comments highlighting sexual abuse in indigenous communities had “nothing to do with racism”.

On the program, the Studio 10 co-host blasted the protesters, accusing them of ignoring the alleged rape of children and women in remote communities.

At this point, fellow panellist Yumi Stynes accused the TV veteran of “sounding racist”.

“Every time you open your mouth, you’re sounding racist,” she said.

Speaking with Ben, Ms Kennerley says Stynes “probably misunderstood”

“In some Aboriginal communities, women, children, babies are being abused. It is rife.

“That remark from me has nothing to do with racism.”
