Consumer Affairs Minister, Marlene Kairouz apologised on Twitter for making the comments branded "racist" by Irish people.

An Australian minister who warned people not to open their doors to anyone with an Irish accent has been slammed as 'blatantly racist'.

Victoria's consumer affairs minister, Marlene Kairouz, was speaking at an awareness campaign about unlicensed tradesmen.

Following criticism of the remarks, Ms Kairouz took to Twitter to apologise.

'I admit I delivered this [message] poorly.

The segment's reporter described how men with Irish accents are "a common feature of a lot of these scams" before leading into the deeply prejudiced comment from Kairouz.

Another said: "I'm an Irish backpacker in Australia the last two years, of which I spent six months working as a locksmith in Melbourne". "You're among friends and among family".
