The Project’s Tommy Little upsets fans with offensive Carrie Bickmore comment

Tommy Little has copped a lot of backlash over the derogatory and X-rated nickname he mistakenly labelled Carrie Bickmore on Instagram.

The 34-year-old comedian horrified fans after sharing a photo of himself and Carrie, writing in the caption, “Tweedledee and Tweedledumbc**t”.

After receiving heat on the social media platform, Little confirmed he was actually referring to himself when he wrote the crass nickname.

Little has a playful nature with Bickmore, whom he co-hosts Hit Network’s Carrie and Tommy radio show with, however the joke didn’t sit well with a lot of his fans.

Bickmore’s partner Chris Walker commented on the post: “She’s actually pretty bright.”

“Not going to follow you anymore. Really disappointing that you think it’s ok,” one user wrote.

“Since when has it been ok to use the c word. I bet your mother is real proud.”

“That c word should never be used, it’s degrading,” another user wrote.

“Why use that word?” asked another fan. “It’s already associated with a feeling of (aggression) against women. Really disappointed and sad.”

“So not needed … also so disheartening to see so many making a ‘joke’ that he is referring to Carrie. Not funny at all.”

“But who’s the c**t?” asked one fan, with Little assuring that it was him.

“I’m a double threat,” he quipped.

Little and Bickmore have a long and playful friendship, as co-hosts on their radio show who often share the panel of Channel 10’s news program The Project.

Bickmore has yet to comment on the remark.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old television personality delighted fans recently, with painfully relatable throwback photos from her teenage years.

In each photo, The Project host has the exact same half-dozed look on her face, but she looks completely different to how she looks now.

Some fans even think she has aged backwards.

“The 90’s…..when you didn’t get the chance to take a photo multiple times til you got one with your eyes open,” she jokingly captioned the photos.

Lisa Wilkinson wrote, “Or get it in the centre of the shot. So cute.”
