Bridget Judd of ABC News reports the photo, purportedly taken at a local meat supplier, shows a butcher handling sausages dressed in only boots and an apron, leaving his bare buttocks exposed.
“That to me is one idiot who is treating black people of this community, Kalkarindji, very wrong and not with a lot of respect,” he said.
“To me, that’s making me think back to Vincent Lingiari, maybe that’s why he walked off the station, because he wasn’t treated fair.
“They’re just treating us like dogs.”
Mr Roy said he had asked local supermarkets to dispose of fresh beef and sausages from the meatworks.
He said it was a health and safety risk, and the community should not “eat dirty meat off their sweat”.
“I went to the main mob, our local community store, told them to empty out the shelf,” he said.
“I rang the school, spoke to the principal … and told him to dispose all of [the meat], because we’ve got a really serious situation happening here.”
The butcher, who has been contacted for comment, removed the photo from Facebook on Friday afternoon.
In a statement, the Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation (ALPA), which runs a number of remote stores across the Northern Territory, including the Kalkarindji meatworks, said the man’s employment had been terminated “effective immediately”.
