Sky News guest host Daisy Cousens says The Wiggles have “gone woke” after adding four new members to diversify the crew.
“It seems that The Wiggles have gone woke by diversifying their particular wiggly crew,” she said.
“Fortunately, they’ve kept the original troupe that they have, but they have added four new members, I believe to do a sort of online show for children.
“And what an incredibly diverse group of Wiggles this is, of varying skin tones and genders. There are some three women and one man, but three of the women are wearing pants, one of the women goes around on a skateboard, there’s a 15-year-old for some reason.
“It’s tempting to romanticise these sort of efforts from various groups or from corporations … but you’ve got to remember, whether it’s a company or a band, they want to trend and at the moment wokeness is trending, so who knows the motivation behind this – not me.”
