As Seen On Facebook | Nikki Osborne is a minor entertainer who is currently cashing in on her autistic child … via @moondyne

Nikki Osborne is a minor entertainer who is currently cashing in on her young autistic child on the comedy circuit. In a show called ‘On the Spectrum’, she tells crowds stories about her autistic kid, talks about how astonishingly quirky he is and throws in some drunk Aboriginal jokes for good measure.

Predictable outcome. Autistics respond with measured outrage about lack of informed consent, argue that Nikki saying ‘we are all on the spectrum’ is problematic, say that they resent her oversharing and mocking autistic traits, object to the objectification of autistics by allistics for their own amusement.

Cue Nikki saying she’s been ‘bullied’ and ‘attacked by trolls’ – she makes these claims in almost every news article she’s done, and certainly in the comedy sphere. I haven’t seen anyone be even close to disrespectful and there was certainly no bullying. When a disability expo cancels her speaking gig in response to commentary by autistics, she responds with a now deleted rant on Instagram saying that she’s hated because she wears pretty dresses and that she’s being bullied by a group of autistic ‘Goliaths’. ‘I’m the fucken David!’ she shrieks, a single tear coursing it’s way through her makeup.

What’s particularly irksome is that Nikki is now billing her show as ‘controversial’ and using that trademark inspo-pity to cash in, with hundreds of paaaarents flocking to her side. Awaaaaareness, you see. It’s important.

I’ve decided to amplify Nikki’s voice, because that single tear shouldn’t have been deleted. It’s important that minor celebs aren’t bullied by minority groups (‘the silent minority’, Osborne hilariously billed us).

And after all – she’s the fucken’ David.

Sarah Hansford On the threads that I was involved in, not once did I bully or name call yet all her friends (who are also members of the Australian film industry) called me ‘fucking stupid’ and other things and pretty much made fun of me. I have the screen shots.

Kiah Wolton-Phillips We should maybe do some media of our own where her little insta video gets shown and the copies of the abusive messages her sycophants sent

Danijela Turner The child is only 6 years old. She’s got between now and his adolescence to brainwash and manipulate him into believing that he is ‘public property’ after which time god help her if her child starts to see it differently. Perhaps our next younger generSee More

Sarah Barton I know some of the people she knows in the film business and some of the comments I’ve seen from her and them are very disturbing, nasty and show a complete lack of humility and willingness to learn and engage with the autistic community. It’s like the idea of anyone challenging her is an outrage.

Monique Blakemore Samantha Connor, Nikki says she does not want to be the face of autism but the 11 members of the group ‘support nikki Osborne’ may disagree.

Danijela Turner Just came across this on my newsfeed. If any of you will be in Melbourne on 24th August, Osborne will be a presenter at the My Special Child Conference 🙄
Jessie Cran
Jessie Cran Arrrrrgh. No. WHY?!
Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Jessie Cran The person who runs the page My Special Child was not aware of all the controversy surrounding Osborne. Osborne and her followers had deleted a lot of nasty material coming from their end but that is why we have screenshots, right? Anyway, See More

    I’d like to see a version of Osborne’s ‘Adequate Mother’ tshirt done as Exploitative Mother or Opportunitic Mother. I would also like to see a campaign to have her removed from her glamourous homes tv show. Terrible that a commercial network would support someone who so upsets rhe community.
