Sydney, June 04 (ANI): Townsville Deputy Mayor David Crisafulli's wife irked locals of Mackay, Queensland by commenting on their looks on Facebook.
Tegan Crisafulli had written that she found only "ugly people" and "freaks" during a horse-racing event in the town.
Crisafulli, who is married to David Crisafulli, deputy mayor of Townsville, 390 kilometres away, wrote: "I still can't believe how many freaks were there.
"I've never seen so many ugly people in the same place at the same time ... I wonder if I'd get into trouble if I posted to FB [Facebook] my 'I'm the ugliest person to photograph' pics from the day."
Mackay race club's president Kerry Woodman blamed Crisafulli for looking at the crowd through "beer goggles".
Meanwhile, reigning Miss Turf Girl Brooke Thompson disagreed with the leader's spouse, saying there were "plenty of good-looking people" present.
"Beauty is not just on the outside, it also comes from the inside," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as telling the Mackay Mercury newspaper.
Crisafulli's defended his wife saying it was just a "light-hearted" comment.
He said: "She wakes up beside me every morning and my head is rougher than anything I saw on that day."
Tegan has deleted her page on Facebook, but a group titled "Beautiful People of Mackay Speak Out Against Tegan Crisafulli!" is still protesting on the site. (ANI)
