A man has been kicked off up the upcoming new season of Married At First Sight Australia because of his social media accounts.
Simon Blackburn had appeared in a trailer for the reality TV dating show, however producers have been shocked to find out about some of the things he said on TikTok and Instagram.
The fly in-fly out miner reportedly used his account to say homosexuality was 'f**king filth'.
"You might as well just jump in a box, you're gonna get AIDS," he said in one video. "If you are gay, you are gonna get AIDS. It's just disgusting. It's like filth, it's actually filth. That sexual orientation is f**king filth."
The divorced father also made some pretty rogue comments about his former relationships.
In another video rant, he said: "Back in the day I used to be like, keep a b***h at home. I had that, the c**ts do f**king nothing, sit on YouTube all f**king day.
"So if the 2021 world means we've got to chip in, help out with the kitchen and stuff - the b***h might as well make some f**king money.
"No point having that c**t sitting at home all f**king day. You come home busting your a**e all day then you've got to chip in and do everything as well? The only time we're gonna f**king chip in is if that c**t makes f**king money."
He also ranted about how he doesn't date women over 60 kilograms and how people have messaged him on dating apps saying they wouldn't be his type if that was the case.
A spokesperson for Channel 9 has confirmed he has been taken off the show.
"When unacceptable social media content was discovered in relation to Simon Blackburn we immediately took steps to remove him from the program," the spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia. "We won't be making further comment."
It's unclear whether his scenes will still air or whether his bride-to-be on the show will be allowed to date someone else.
When asked about him being dumped from the programme, Blackburn declined to comment.
However he did put up a statement on his Instagram that tried to claim that what he's said in the past doesn't reflect who he is now.
"To clarify, I haven't posted on TikTok in six months and all videos of me are reposts or screenshots of lives from last year! Not my current thoughts or mindset!" he said.
"No further comment will be given! I've got Covid, let me rest!"
