A Riot in Cronulla, and A Riot in my Heart. An acclaimed racy interracial online fanfic published anonymously by ‘totallynotalanjones6969’ has won not only the hearts of 65+ year old women everywhere, but a multi-million dollar book and movie deal with Netflix. The tale attempts to revise Australian history by portraying Hadley’s inner turmoil during the tumultuous Cronulla Riots of 2005. He struggles between his duties as a racist radio host and devoted and rapturous lover to girlfriend Alana Jones. The deal has been highly criticised by people across Sydney as culturally inappropriate, disrespectful, and racist, with the most common public reaction being “the f*ck bro”.
