Rebel Wilson has publicly slammed Sydney's latest lockdown, saying "you can't keep locking down as a strategy".
The Aussie Pitch Perfect actress, who is based in the US but owns several properties in Sydney, shared her thoughts on the city's strict new two-week lockdown in a series of Instagram Story posts.
"Sydney WTF!!!" Wilson wrote in one Instagram story, following it up with a photo of a bare supermarket shelf she said her mother had taken at a Sydney Woolworths.
"You can't keep locking down as a strategy," Wilson wrote in another post.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced a two-week Sydney-wide lockdown on Saturday as cases of the super-contagious Delta variant continue to spread across the city. It's the city's first lockdown in six months, and it comes after multiple warnings from the vice-president of Australia's peak medical body that the Delta variant lurking across the country "has outrun contact tracers".
Millions of residents in areas across inner Sydney and beyond, including the Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Central Coast, are under stay-at-home restrictions that are in place until July 9.
Not among those in lockdown: Wilson herself, who is currently in Atlanta shooting the upcoming Netflix film Senior Year. Wilson owns a waterfront home in Sydney's Birchgrove along with several investment properties, and divides her time between the Harbour City and Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, NSW Health has released a new list of exposure sites overnight, including new transport routes and venues of concern associated with confirmed cases of Covid.
Berejiklian defended her government's handling of this latest outbreak over the weekend, amid scrutiny over whether Sydney should have moved to a strict lockdown earlier to contain the highly contagious new Covid strain.
"Can I say very, very strongly any success New South Wales has had to date is because our government to the letter followed the health advice," she said.
"I'm not someone who will be afraid to take any decision we need to keep our citizens safe."
