Old m8 Jesse Willesee is no stranger to drug-related controversy – he’s the bro who smoked a blunt in front of Town Hall at 4:20pm on April 20 (GEDDIT? GEDDIT?) – but he just outdid himself in truly terribly protest.
Tonight on the Tom Tilley-hosted live panel show ‘Australians On Drugs‘, Willesee decided to interrupt a very valid and honest discussion about Aussies and drug culture for his own bleeding 15 minutes of notoriety.
Summed up, it’s basically this:
Jesse: *stands up to protest*
Jesse: *unbuttons shirt*
Jesse: *something written on his chest*
Camera man: lol nope
Jesse: *walks out*
Tom Tilley: lol bye
Entire panel: lol bye
Watch the excruciating moment here:

Despite the ABC2 / triple j collab getting plenty of praise on Twitter, literally no one had any for Willesee.

Jesse Willesee is a moron looking for attention, he does not represent the level-headed, open minded community. Ugh embarrassing. #ausdrugs

Jesse “I’m not fucked up from drugs”. I just can’t sit through a normal debate without losing my shit and running #ausdrugs

Here’s his chest in all its glory:
Tonight during the ABC’s live drug debate program Australians On Drugs, I protested by removing my shirt to reveal this slogan that means so much to me: Weed is not a crime. I have always said that more people can see these images online than can ever turn up to a protest. Tonight it was important for my message to spark debate, and to resonate past tonight’s debate. Let’s keep this conversion going: Legalise don’t criminalise. Support don’t punish. Marijuana is not a crime. @abctv
Everyone’s got a right to protest and all, but FFS what is the point when you’re protesting something that’s already hosting the conversation you’re trying to generate?? Better luck next time m8.
