Women's Day comment labelled "sexist"

Tostee post sparks war of words

Gable Tostee is back in the spotlight, over a Facebook post about International Women's Day.

The Gold Coast man who was last year acquitted of murdering Tinder date Warriena Wright, took to social media on March 9 under his pseudonym Eric Thomas, posting,"Happy International Women's Day to all ma hoes ;)".

The comment sparked some outrage on social media while Sunrise host Samantha Armytage this morning warning Gold Coast women to "not date that man".

Tostee hit back, writing,"the bitter feminists presenting this segment are just mad that no men would touch them with a 10 foot pole".

Tostee also shared a screenshot of all of the friend requests he's received since the segment aired.

"I'd like to thank the media for giving me extra attention and recognition today for free," he said.
