Added another: ‘Totally agree. I am coeliac. So hard to find gluten free right now. There is no “other” choice for us.’
Said a third: ‘Not being rude, but if everyone takes the GF flour what will celiacs use? They don't have a choice...We do!’
Added one more: ‘Please be mindful in these difficult times that gluten free products should be left for those who need them due to health reasons. Many friends have expressed the shortages like lots of products but unfortunately these people can’t just choose something else to eat.’
But Kylie wasn’t taking the comments lying down, saying that she’s simply trying to feed her family in these tough times.
She says: ‘For everyone jumping up and down at the fact I bought 1 packet of GF flour get over yourselves I’m not 1 of these panic shoppers who has gone out of my way to stock up on food or anything for that fact I myself actually balled my eyes out the other day because I could not buy nappies, formula or even wipes for my 14 week old son!
‘I to have a family to feed and provide for and while my daughter doesn’t eat much food to begin with banana bread is however something she does like so if I have to find other alternatives (mind u it was NOT the last 1 on the shelf) I will cause like the rest of us we’re just trying to feed and keep our kids happy! So maybe you should think before you go throwing accusations at someone you don’t even know.’
Other social media users sympathised with Kylie’s plight.
Said one: ‘Atm gf is all anyone can eat. Plenty of vegan food on the shelves too. But very little 'normal' food. Is all you can eat, and atm it is all that is left. So stop being hateful damn.’
Added another: ‘I understand your frustration but people have family’s to feed in this crises and if that’s all that the shops have to offer then that’s all she can get! I had to get lactose free milk not because I wanted to but it was my only option and like I said I have kids so it is what it is.’
Said a third: ‘Wow, people just stop. Don’t condemn her because she has GF food. The shops are ridiculous at the moment and there is nothing on the shelves for anyone and I don’t think she deserves to be made to feel like s***.’
Said one more: ‘Wow I can’t believe how rude some people are being over a single packet of gluten free flour. This world has gone mad. Not even a month or two ago we were all helping Australia out for fires and now everyone is against everyone. Damned if u do or damned if you don’t. Let’s all be nice to each other.’
