Briggs Bought A Billboard For The Sole Purpose Of Trolling Pauline Hanson
Briggs 4 PM
With the election around the corner, Pauline Hanson’s face is fuckin everywhere. The One Nation leader has been plastered across billboards around the country, spruiking her signature brand of homespun, straight-talkin’, tells-it-like-it-is racism. And one man has had enough.
During his latest appearance on The Weekly, rapper Briggs explains to host Charlie Pickering that he spotted one of Hanson’s billboards in his home town of Shepparton — and after fuming about it for a while, he decided to get a billboard of his own.
“There she’s saying ‘I’ve got the guts to say what you’re thinking’,” Briggs tells Pickerng. “Which is a polite way of saying ‘I don’t mind being racist’.”
“I got worried that maybe Pauline doesn’t know what I’m thinking,” he continues. “So out of the kindness of my heart, and the greatness of your wallet, I did something about it.”

And yes, it’s actually a real billboard. “Anyone going home to Frankston is going to see that grill,” Briggs promises.
