Jordan Shanks-Markovina, aka YouTuber Friendlyjordies

A consequence of Friendlyjordies’ interest in John Barilaro is that the popular Australian YouTuber has been spending quite a bit of time and money on lawyers lately.

Friendlyjordies — real name Jordan Shanks — is currently being sued by the deputy NSW premier for defamation and his producer was arrested for allegedly stalking him.

Shanks says the law firm Xenophon Davis is representing him, his producer and also his producer's mother in a claim that police assaulted her during her son’s arrest.
