A Queensland senator has shared a controversial message about coronavirus, and some MPs are not impressed.

Larissa Waters, a Green senator, shared a post on her Instagram that claimed coronavirus is “Scomo’s revenge.”

“This coronavirus is actually Scomo’s revenge,” her post read, which Senator Waters credited to the ‘LibLOL’ Facebook page.

“We didn’t shake his hand. Now nobody can shake hands.

“We didn’t like him having an overseas holiday. Now nobody can have an overseas holiday.

“We called him an arsehole. Now nobody can wipe their arseholes.”

The post has since been removed, but not before she was slammed by her fellow senators.

Liberal Senator James Paterson from Victoria tweeted: “I honestly thought this was fake when I first saw it.”

He called her post “incredibly poor taste”.
