Commentator Prue MacSween’s tanned skin was forcibly removed from her body this week on Channel Seven’s Sunrise.

Sunrise co-host Sam Armytage said it was “for the wellbeing” of her own segment.

Armytage says the tanned skin was highly offensive and faced potential abuse.

A white family in inner city Sydney will adopt MacSween’s tanned skin.

Armytage reacted to criticisms over the forcible removal of MacSween’s dark body part saying it was just “political correctness gone mad”.

“Are we now living in a society where we can’t peel off someone’s dark skin – where does it end?”

“We’re hoping a white South African farmer may be able to take on the job of looking after MacSween’s tanned skin,” said Armytage.
