‘I just heard a flock of cockatoos in my lounge room, then realised it was only Julia Morris,’ tweeted one.

‘Julia Morris hosting the Logies is not helping the ratings with her “humour”. Quite ironically in her opening monologue she’s criticising Twitter and now I’ve come here to criticise her,’ said another.

The 54-year-old also upset a few folks for joke about her gender identity.

‘For everybody watching at home, do not adjust your television sets. I do identify as a woman,’ she said.

‘The deal was I could open the show just as long as I dressed like a man.’

‘Totally agree,’ responded another person, while one wrote: ‘That was so on the nose, did someone sign off on this or…?’

Despite the vitriol on social media, there was also a handful of fans who enjoyed Julia’s monologue.

‘I just don’t want to get cancelled!’ she told the audience. ‘Cancelled sounds like it hurts to me.’

She then screeched: ‘Shout out in the room if you’ve been cancelled!

‘Cancelled is not that bad if you’re here in the room. You’re here at the Logies. I think it’s all good news, guys.’

She also made fun of her salary by bringing up the gender pay gap.

‘It’s very good that the Logies team hasn’t just gone with another rich white man opening the show,’ she said.

‘They’ve gone for a thirty per cent-less rich white woman!’ she added.

On a more serious note, she said: ‘We’re finally talking about this wage disparity between men and women. I think it’s time. Am I right?’ 

Her statement was met with rapturous applause form the audience.
