Bec Judd blasted on Instagram for blaming 'small minority' for Melbourne COVID-19 outbreak

Rebecca Judd has been criticised for holding a “small minority” responsible for the second wave of the coronavirus that has sent Melbourne back into lockdown.

On Tuesday, the footy WAG posted a photo and thanked the fellow Melbournians “who have been doing the right things since March”.

“It’s so disappointing we find ourselves in this position because of a very small minority,” Judd said.

“Melbourne is still the best city in the world, just not for the next 6 weeks!

“Look after each other”.

Followers were quick to suggest the 37-year-old did not have the credentials to make such accusations.

“She’s neither a medic nor a political scientist. She really ought to just stick to matters and things she does know about,” one person wrote on Facebook.

“Why is this woman all of a sudden an expert? Get off seriously!” another commented.

Many have said her comments are hypocritical as she posted a photo of herself with friend and co-founder of Jaggad activewear label, Michelle Greene

The women were sharing cocktails over the weekend and appeared to be ignoring social distancing rules.

“She’s the one who was partying and not doing social distancing in Melb,” one person commented on Facebook.

“Isn’t she the one out drinking and dining with “the girls”?!” another wrote.

However not everyone disagreed with Judd’s statement.

“Well, she’s not wrong!” a fan said in support of the post, referring to the face that a small group of infected people spread the virus.

The mother of four homeschooled her children during the first lockdown period and also spent her time baking and keeping active with frequent home workouts.

Five million Melbourne residents re-entered phases three of restrictions on Wednesday as COVID-19 cases continue to grow each day and have reached its worst figure yet.

The lockdown will be in place for six weeks and has reignited panic buying in major supermarkets as customers flocked to stores before the re-instated lockdown came into effect.
