A controversial Australian comedian has ripped into the Irwin family in a savage interview, calling Bindi a "freak" and saying Steve's behaviour signalled he had Aspergers.
Fiona O'Loughlin has a history with the Irwin family, appearing on an ABC show in 2010 where she called then-11-year-old Bindi "a bit creepy" and a "freak show". The comments received widespread criticism from Australians.
But nearly a decade on, O'Loughlin doesn't appear to have changed her mind, doubling down on an episode of the podcast The Little Dum Dum Club.
"I said [Bindi] was a freak," O'Loughlin said.
"Let's call a spade a spade. Steve Irwin had Asperger's. You don’t run around the world talking like that without being bonkers. Fun, but bonkers. What's the American wife? Terri. Terri actually thinks she's in a cartoon because the outfits are crazy."
O'Loughlin's opinion didn't get a warm reception on social media.
"Fiona O'Loughlin is desperately trying to be relevant by insulting Bindi Irwin," one person said on Twitter. "What a nasty woman," said another.
O'Loughlin, who won the Australian version of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here last year, also claims she has been blacklisted from television due to her "alcoholic history" and for being "on the wrong side of 50".
