The Shocking Photo Of Erin Molan Everyone's Talking About
NRL Footy Show host Erin Molan is once again gracing the pages of Cosmopolitan magazine - but this time the usually immaculately made-up star looks decidedly different.
Molan shared the full-page image on her personal Instagram account last night and, at first glance, it looks like she's sporting a bruised eye and cut lip.
On closer inspection, however, it becomes clear that the "injuries" consist of derogatory put-downs, words like loner, fool, freak, dumb, geek, gullible, and the sentence "You don't deserve me".
It's part of a campaign spearheaded by the women's magazine, aiming to highlight the many forms of domestic violence by demonstrating that "you don't need injuries to be a victim".
Confronting... yes... Absolutely... BUT CRUCIAL... Yes and then some... I am one of a few women who have lent their face to @cosmoaustralia to highlight the ongoing and terrifying problem this country has with domestic violence. IT HAS TO STOP. ENOUGH. Please read this month's magazine and the chilling personal accounts of men and women who have been there. Physical and emotional abuse kills and no one can afford to turn a blind eye ever. Xxx
"Confronting... yes. Absolutely," Molan wrote. "But crucial... yes, and then some. I am one of a few women who have lent their face to Cosmo Australia to highlight the ongoing and terrifying problem this country has with domestic violence.
"IT HAS TO STOP. ENOUGH."
The "Look at me" campaign hopes to help Australians understand that words can be just as harmful as physical violence, something Molan has previously spoken about on the Footy Show.
"Physical and emotional abuse kills and no-one can afford a blind eye," the 34-year-old concluded.
