Muslim presenter Waleed Aly stuns with powerful acceptance speech


Waleed Aly won the Gold Logie last night for the Best Personality on Australian TV, and used his acceptance speech to shine a light on the lack of diversity in the media. 

Watch his acceptance speech here:

“Do not adjust your sets,” Aly joked. “There’s nothing wrong with the picture. I’m sure there’s an Instagram filter you can use to return things to normal, you’ll be fine. This is happening. It’s true. Finally a male presenter on commercial TV has won the Gold Logie.”

Aly also relayed a story about a colleague named Mustafa who had to use a pseudonym because he wouldn’t get a job. “He’s here tonight and it matters to people like him that I’m here.”
