A jacket worn by an Aussie newsreader has caused a ruckus online, with people having a giggle over the ‘penis-shaped’ neckline.

Brisbane’s Channel Nine newsreader Samantha Heathwood has gone viral after mimicking Natarsha Belling’s famous 2016 jacket look, while reading Wednesday’s news.

Viewers just couldn’t get over the fact that the neckline resembles a rather rude part of the male anatomy, and took to social media for a laugh.

“Literally cannot unsee it now,” one person said.

While another person said the white T-shirt underneath the jacket made the whole thing a lot worse.

“#penisjacket lives on!!!! I still find this hilarious!” one person on Twitter said, while another commented: “I know I’m immature but this cracks me up!!”

This isn’t the first time the jacket has caused a stir, with Channel 10 newsreader Natarsha Belling, becoming an online sensation in 2016 when she wore it on TV.
