Disability Advocates Condemn Don Burke’s Self Diagnosed Aspergers Claims
Allegations continue to come forward from ex colleagues of Australian Television personality Don Burke regarding sexual misconduct and harassment. The star of Burke’s Backyard has denied the allegations and hired a legal team to pursue defamation proceedings against claimants. While defending the allegations in an interview with Channel 9’s Tracy Grimshaw, Burke has sparked further controversy, ‘self-diagnosing’ himself with Asperger’s Syndrome in an attempt to justify his behavior.
The Daily was joined by disability advocates, Frank Pangallo, Board Member at the Gold Foundation to discuss these claims.
