Jennifer Aniston’s husband Justin Theroux has made a cryptic comment on social media about the alleged mistreatment of youths in Northern Territory detention centres.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday evening the 44-year-old Irish actor posted a still picture of Dylan Voller – a former NT juvenile inmate who was shown restrained and hooded in a chair in footage obtained by ABC’s Four Corners.
Mr Theroux captioned the shot:
“’Dylan Voller’ c. 2015 -artist unknown #notaNVG… YET. #melbourne #dylanvoller”

The ambiguous post seemed to have many wondering if Mr Theroux did confuse the picture for an artwork because of the previous National Gallery of Victoria images on his account. The hazy reason for the post has caused many to vent outrage and demand further explanation.
“That’s shameful of you @justintheroux,” one commenter remarked.
“This is not an artwork, this is what’s happening within juvenile justice centres in Australia as we speak… NOT ACCEPTABLE AT ALL…” wrote another.
However the "#notaNVG" could allude to the star is using his 262k follower-strong platform to raise awareness, and highlight the possibility that in the future the shocking picture could come to stand as a symbol of how our nation treats kids in detention.
On Instagram pundit seemed to sum up the sentiments of many following the revelations: “Ashamed to be an Australian if this is how we treat kids.”
The PM has called for a Royal Commission following the Four Corners’ report.
The Weekly is trying to reach Mr Theroux for comment.
