British far-right commentator and former The apprentice The candidate was quarantined at a government-mandated hotel in Sydney upon arriving in Australia earlier this week.
She reportedly said in a live Instagram video that she was deliberately breaking quarantine rules by mocking the guards and opening the door to her hotel room without wearing a mask.
On Sunday, the Seven Network – which airs the reality show – confirmed that she would not appear on the show.
In a statement, he added: “Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn his irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine. “

About 12.2 million Australians, nearly half of the country’s population, are in detention.
Earlier Sunday, the country’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said border forces had launched an investigation into Ms Hopkins.
He said in a statement on Twitter: “With NSW and Victoria locked out, a reminder that temporary visa holders must obey public health orders.
The NSW Police Force spokeswoman said she was assisting the border forces review “to determine whether the entry visa to Australia issued to a 46-year-old woman from the United Kingdom remains valid”.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt condemned Hopkins’ actions as “dangerous, irresponsible and apparently deliberate.”
He added: “If the facts are corroborated by the deliberate exposure of a person to potential contact with someone who has not completed quarantine, then the strongest action must be taken. “
In October, Ms Hopkins angered passengers when she flew from LA to London without wearing a mask.
On her way to Heathrow Airport earlier this week, she took to Instagram on a bus without wearing a mask. She accused Mayor of London Sadiq Khan of “wanting to keep Londoners muzzled” after deciding that masks would remain mandatory on the Transport for London network after July 19, when the existing rules will end.
