Major alcohol retailer selling whisky with Ned Kelly’s image on the cans

word on the street

Tom Elliott has questioned the use of convicted criminal Ned Kelly’s image by a company trying to sell alcohol.

Eddie told Tom Elliott he was perusing the Dan Murphy’s website when he stumbled across the images.

“Which I found quite offensive,” Eddie said.

“Because they’re profiting out of a chap, as we all know, murdered two police officers.

“It’s got ‘legend’ on the can and other types they have include ‘courage’, ‘mateship’ and ‘optimism’ and I just find it a bit distasteful to have that sort of terminology associated with a cop killer.”

“I’ve always struggled a bit with this,” Tom said.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate to use the image of Ned Kelly to sell whisky and coke, and say that he’s a legend, he wasn’t! He was a convicted criminal.

“It would be like having Tony Mokbel themed bourbon and coke.”
