When you walk in my shoes, threats and intimidation are unfortunately a regular part of the job.
Most of the people I meet are great, there's even some people who may not be exactly fans, but they usually show at least some manners in public.
But not this guy. Not Johnny.
Unhappy with how he was portrayed he has no one to blame but himself.
You see, I'm not trying to spin a narrative like the mainstream media – I showed you the raw vision of what happened when I talked to people at the Freedom Camp and I also showed you the 360° camera footage when the gang of self-proclaimed 'leaders' encircled me and even tried to enlist the help of police to have me thrown out of the camp.
You can watch it for yourself and make up your own mind.
"G'day Avi you f--kwit it's Johnny Q from Freedom Camp. I've just seen the f--king video you made last night c--t I can't wait to see you in person. And guess what f--kwit you gave me your phone number d--khead, so guess what everybody in Australia is going to get your phone number now. Hope that f--ks your day up d--khead and I cant wait to see ya," he said in the first voicemail message.
"G'day Avi it's Johnny Q here mate, just on that phone call from this morning, I've spoken to my agent over in South Australia ... So you can ring this number... I've also spoken to my lawyer, you've got three hours to get rid of that video mate or I'm pressing charges ... I'm going to sue you because you're going to defame me and the future work I'm going to get, so you didn't ask for consent to film me, you didn't ask..." and that's where the second voicemail cut off.
But his tactics didn't work, just like they won't work this time. The rest of the camp were awake to the stunt, worked out what was going on and saw through it.
Like I said, I wasn't going to be intimidated when I knew I had done nothing wrong. Imagine having a group like this surround you to try and physically intimidate you at your place of work.
If Johnny had any self-respect he would reflect on his own actions and how they led to this point and quit while he's ahead. If he was any kind of man he'd own the situation and be phoning me to say sorry, not threaten me even more.
But Johnny or no Johnny, this won't stop me from doing my job.
Because I don't do it for blokes like that, I do it for the regular, honest everyday people who want to know what's really happening – not try and put themselves at the front of it.
