Real Housewives of Sydney star Lisa Oldfield is labelled ‘sick’ for mocking an anti-vax relative in hospital with Covid – as she admits even her 10-year-old son thinks it’s funny

  • Lisa said an anti-vax relative ‘berated’ her at Christmas for getting the vaccine
  • Two weeks later, that relative has been ‘hospitalised with Covid’
  • The reality star and ex-wife of One Nation co-founder David Oldfield mocked the unnamed family member on Instagram on Tuesday

The Real Housewives of Sydney star Lisa Oldfield has sparked controversy after brutally mocking an anti-vaxxer family member who was hospitalised with Covid-19.

The outspoken socialite shared a gleeful Instagram post on Tuesday about her family member’s health battle, alongside a photo of a herd of sheep wearing face masks – common meme used by anti-vaxxers to mock those who follow health advice.

‘Had an awkward conversation with a relative over Xmas. He’s anti-vax and berated me for being jabbed,’ the 46-year-old wrote in the caption.

‘Fast forward two weeks and he’s hospitalised with Covid! He derided me as sheeple!’

The mother of two went on to reveal her youngest son, 10-year-old Harry, also found his relative’s plight amusing and imitated a sheep when he learned of the situation.

‘When I told Harry tonight he said “baaaaaad luck”,’ Lisa wrote, before adding: ‘My kid, just like yours but heaps f**king funnier.’

Lisa, who is the ex-wife of One Nation co-founder David Oldfield, sparked fierce debate after sharing the post, with some of her followers finding it funny while others said she was ‘sick’ for laughing at someone else’s misfortune.

‘What a delightful story… hehehe happy new year!’ one supporter commented, to which Lisa replied: ‘You know he’s his mother’s son. The gift that keeps on giving!’

‘This is gold,’ another wrote, while someone else added: ‘Great post. Talk about stirring the pot and getting some strange reactions. One thing is certain….. this pandemic has caused a lot of people to lose their sense of humour!’

However, some followers didn’t appreciate Lisa’s dark sense of humour.

‘This person is related to you and sick enough to be in hospital and  you can make a joke at their expense? Regardless of a difference of opinion or bad behaviour where is your humanity?’ one critic wrote. 

‘It’s ok, he’s a d**k,’ Lisa curtly replied.

Covid cases in NSW have spiked to 35,054 on Wednesday while Victoria recorded 17,636 new infections overnight – but ICU admissions in both states remain steady. 

Wednesday’s numbers in NSW are the highest daily total recorded for any Australian state since the beginning of the pandemic – and are a large jump from the 23,131 infections announced on Tuesday.
