Australian actress Jane Hamilton-Foster hit back at an American who claimed the local accent – using her best ‘Aussie’ twang

But not before some restless Australians could cut his video and take aim at the sensational allegations.

One of the critics of the young woman is Australian actress Jane Hamilton-Foster who fired back in her best “aussie” twang.

‘G’day love, Australian here, we all have accents, don’t we. Yours is strong enough, she said, letting her broad accent shine through.

‘Good for you.’

And the actresses’ video appeared to win support from fellow Australians.

“I love that Americans think they don’t have an accent,” one man laughed in the comments.

“I wonder if she got along,” said another.

A third used the hashtag “leaveAussiesalone”.

Others said the original woman might have been confused by the combination of a large accent and Australian slang.

When I went to America, nobody knew what I was saying!!! I had to tone it down,” one woman admitted.

“I don’t think it takes much to confuse Americans,” laughed one.

As a vocal coach laughed, “We all have accents,” that’s something I say at least once a day.”

Others said they thought the “American Southern” accent was overdone in the movies until they headed to southern states.

But others sided with the American.

“I don’t talk like this Aussie here, few do,” one woman said.

“I’m an Aussie, and YES, 100%…when Aussies are put on the spot…they definitely exaggerate their accents,” one man said.

“When our accent is ‘overdone’ around the world with movies and TV shows, I don’t blame anyone who believes it,” another woman said.

Others were disappointed that the original video was made private.

‘Did she delete her account? I wanted to see the comments on this video but I can’t find it,” one woman said.

“She went private, dead,” said another.
