‘If people want to attack me, I would honestly rather be called f*g. At least it’s me and my community and I can stand up for it, she added.

“I know that when we speak for my brother, he doesn’t necessarily have the ability to articulate himself.”

A keyboard warrior had called Christian “an attention-seeking r****” on Instagram over the weekend in response to his girly outfit for Derby Day.

Christian responded by reposting the cruel meme on his Instagram stories and adding that he found the term, an insult aimed at people with disabilities, reprehensible.

‘Honestly think what you want,’ Christian wrote. “However, as the brother of someone with a disability, I find this expression extremely offensive.”

Christian, who has four brothers, is the son of Richard Wilkins, one of Channel Nine’s longest-serving presenters.

Richard’s oldest son, Adam, 47, has Down syndrome.

The troll had mocked Christian’s Derby Day outfit as if it were a Halloween costume.

The meme listed several ‘features’ on the costume’s packaging, including ‘duct tape’, ‘chicken steaks’ and the ‘Richard Wilkins seal of approval’.
