The Huddle: Should the Prime Minister apologise to KFC worker?

After the Prime Minister publicly criticised the sibling of a Papatoetoe High School student for not following the rules, the KFC worker spoke out and said she wasn't told to self-isolate. She wanted an apology from Jacinda Ardern.

The woman - known as Case L - went to work on February 22 and her sibling - known as Case J - went to work at Kmart on February 20. Their sister is Case I, a student at the high school, who tested positive on February 23.

But the Government is sticking to its guns and said it had been made very clear to the family that they needed to stay home and get tested. Furthering the confusion, however, was a post from the official Unite Against Covid-19 Facebook page which corroborates the KFC worker's claims.

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin told followers to "shut the f*** up and mind your own business" after they questioned how the couple had a child five months after their fifth child was born.

The actor was furious after social media followers questioned the couple's baby news.

While his wife Hilaria Baldwin's post did not allow comments, his family photo on Instagram did, and followers used it to ask questions.

One person asked to know "who the mother" is, as they were confused about how she could have given birth so quickly after her previous child.

"She gave birth six months ago. If it was a surrogate just say that. If the baby was adopted just say that. If the baby was a product of an affair and you've decided to raise it with your wife just say that," the commenter said. "If you don't want to say anything – why don't you both stop constantly posting and begging for clickbait. Just raise your 100 children in private."

Baldwin did not mince his words in his response: "You should shut the f*** up and mind your own business."

In a separate reply, the actor blamed the questions from friends on Americans' behaviour, saying that, as a people, "they're not very smart".
