Ruby Rose called radio station Steve Price for his ‘bad’ comments after he accused her of ‘bragging about her freedom’ abroad while the Aussies remain in lockdown.

Steve thought it was tone deaf for Ruby and Natalie Bassingthwaighte to have shared footage to Instagram of their evening in New York together on Saturday.

After Steve made the remarks in the comments section of Natalie’s post, Ruby, who has lived in the United States for nearly a decade, slammed him for his ‘terrible’ accusation.

Natalie, 46, who is in New York from her hometown of Byron Bay as she prepares for the Australian production of Jagged Little Pill, shared a video for Instagram of herself and The Orange Is the New Black star cheering on a busy New York Street.

Steve, 66, who appears regularly on Channel Ten’s The Project, made his thoughts quite clear in the comments section.

‘You do not hate it when privileged Australians boast of their freedom while ordinary people are locked in and lose their livelihoods and mental health. Sad lack of compassion, ‘he wrote.

Ruby, who has since become a Hollywood actress since leaving Australia for the United States almost 10 years ago, quickly defended herself and Natalie.

‘This is how it is a horrible, horribly evil thing to write on a person’s page. I think if you step back from your obvious and understandable frustration, you will see both myself and Natalie worry a lot about mental health, ‘she began.

‘I live in the states and have for almost a decade. I have not been home for years and I miss my family deeply. Natalie, the kind and extremely compassionate person in this video is working and soon she can take back what she has been working on here for the Australian audience.

‘Broadway just reopened two weeks ago here and people were crying and celebrating everywhere, including the media. We need art, it is imperative for people and their mental health. It creates jobs and will be something that brings great joy to the Aussie audience. ‘

Ruby said that while she ‘understands’ his anger over what is happening in Australia, his comments to Natalie were ‘out of step’.

‘I’m so sorry you lost your loved ones that many of us have during this time. However, I think you will find that Natalie does not accept this opportunity and staying home without making money does not solve anything? ‘ she wrote.

‘Her children are almost at an age where they can read these comments, and for that alone I would say that you do not worry about mental health or compassion, or you would not call people names in the comment boxes. Really weird. ‘

Ruby further revealed how the position was in honor of a friend they ‘lost and miss’ and that she does not want to ‘argue’ with Steve or ‘disturb’ him.

‘Steve Price, I do not want to argue with you or upset you. I wish you nothing but the best in these truly challenging, soul-testing times, ‘she concluded.

It has been a challenging time for Australians with Sydney set to be released from lockdown on Monday after a grueling 106 days in lockdown while trying to cope with a devastating outbreak of the Covid Delta variant.

Meanwhile, Victoria registered 1,890 new Covid-19 cases and five new deaths on Sunday night.

About 58 percent of Victorians over the age of 15 have been vaccinated with the state on track to reach the 70 percent milestone by October 26, which will end its sixth lockdown.
