Mix 106.5 radio co-host Yumi Stynes has come under fire for tweets she posted during Sunday nights performance of The Xfactor, whilst taking aim at the members of One Direction.

This is not the first time Stynes has spoken ‘inappropriately’ in the media. Back in 2012 while discussing a photo of Victoria Cross recipient Ben Roberts-Smith on Channel 10’s The Circle with veteran journalist George Negus, Stynes created a storm of controversy and was later forced to apologise.

“He’s going to dive down to the bottom of the pool to see if his brain is there,” Stynes commented about a photo of the war hero in a pool.
