Austria: Facebook page set up against Conchita Wurst's participation!

ORF, the Austrian broadcaster, announced that Conchita Wurst would represent the country in Copenhagen and this has already caused anger among Austrians and ESC fans. A facebook page has been set up against the broadcasters choice.

"NEIN zu Conchita Wurst beim Song Contest" has already clocked up over 35,000 "likes" in just five days. The description states that the people don't accept ORF's decision - they believe that the public should have a say. I kinda agree with that - maybe they'll be a national final where the Austrian public selects the song? That could work. The bearded lady has reacted saying she'll go her own way and that she's used to these kind of insults. The group is particularly mean towards Conchita herself...

Whether you love her or hate her, Austria are making one heck of statement. I applaud them for that.
