Obituary turns twitter against The Australian with #myozobit

THE Australian's obituary of bestselling and much-loved Australian author Colleen McCullough has turned social media against the paper. 

Thousands of Twitter and Facebook users have parodied the structure of the obituary under the hashtag #myozobit, which begins by making disparaging remarks about the deceased's physique before following up with an odd compliment.
