Aussies laughing their heads off over anti-Obama teen girl. [View all]


Kristen Neel praised Australia's "Christian, male president" on Twitter, before copping a barrage of responses and eventually deleting her account. Picture via Twitter

BARACK Obama's "four more years'' victory tweet may have become the most retweeted message of all time, but last night one American teenager's misguided views on Australia were lighting up the twittersphere down under.

Clearly disappointed with the election result, 18-year-old Georgia republican Kristen Neel joined the throngs of American Twitter users claiming they were moving to Australia to escape Obama's presidency.

Unfortunately, she got a few facts wrong.

"I'm moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says,'' she tweeted.

Neel's tweet quickly went viral as bemused Aussies retweeted it more than 1400 times, many pointing out that Australia actually has an atheist, female Prime Minister.

"Our Prime Minister is a woman, an atheist who lives with a man she hasn't married. I don't think you'd like it here,'' tweeted Ian Cuthbertson, TV editor at The Australian.

"I think you meant Antarctica. Move there,'' tweeted @post_rock0.

"Congratulations on being the dumbest person in the world,'' tweeted @Patrickavenell.
