The project’s Tommy Little chides Nadia Bartel about the now infamous video of former WAG sniffing ‘white powder’ from a Kmart sign during an illegal meeting during the Melbourne lockdown
It’s been more than a month since a video of Nadia Bartel snorting white powder at an illegal meeting during the lockdown in Melbourne went viral.
But on Tuesday, comedian Tommy Little couldn’t resist roasting the ex-AFL WAG, even weeks after her name hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The 36-year-old Project host shared a video of herself wearing a cheap Kmart plate — similar to the one Nadia used in the scathing video — for cooking purposes on Instagram.

Bringing a blowtorch to the camera and what appeared to be sushi on the plate in question, he joked, “Dealing a punch on a $3 Kmart plate.”
The term “blow” is a slang term commonly used to describe cocaine. However, Nadia was never charged with drug offenses because the police could not prove what she snorted.
Nadia was accidentally filmed by her best friend Ellie Pearson breaking Melbourne’s strict lockdown and snorting white powder during an illegal gathering at a friend’s house on September 2.

The former footy WAG broke her silence with a public apology a day after the video was accidentally uploaded to Instagram.
“Hello everyone, I’ve let you all down because of my actions. I take full responsibility and am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in the future,” she wrote in a message.
“To my family and friends, my business associates and the health professionals who are trying to keep us all safe, I am ashamed and sorry.
“I am sincerely and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and trust in time.’

Private and public gatherings are not allowed in Melbourne, where Bartel lives, under Victoria’s Covid restrictions.
Nadia’s apology — including an appeal for forgiveness from health professionals — appeared to confirm that the meeting was held on Thursday, Sept. 2.
A later report claimed the video first made its way online because Ellie had a cracked phone screen.

It is alleged that she tried to send the video to her sister; however, since her phone screen was damaged, she pressed the wrong buttons.
As a result, the clip was posted to both Instagram and Facebook and was online for about 10 minutes before being taken down, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
But it was quickly copied and distributed by others, went viral Thursday night and made headlines Friday morning.
Nadia and three other women were each fined $5,452 after scathing images of the party were posted on Instagram.
She was not charged with drug offenses because the police could not prove what she snorted.
The influencer is a mother of two and the ex-wife of retired AFL star Jimmy Bartel, a Brownlow medalist who spent his career with the Geelong Cats.
The couple split in 2019 after a five-year marriage.
