Nadia Bartel has become the subject of a long-running joke among AFL fans on Twitter since her split from Geelong star Jimmy.   

And the gag was back in full force on Sunday night when the ex-WAG, 35, failed to attend the AFL's first-ever virtual Brownlow Medal Count. 

Nadia is routinely the subject of ironic Tweets praising her 'stunning bravery', and Sunday's no-show proved the perfect opportunity for the critics to resurface.

'Please keep Nadia in your thoughts tonight. #Brownlow #Brave,' teased one footy fan. 

'Strong AND brave!' another joked. 

Another Twitter user ironically suggested that the Brownlows ceremony should include an 'In Memoriam' for the wives and girlfriends who have broken up with their athlete partners in the past year.

Many of these comments were made response to a Tweet about the 2020 Brownlow Medal by The Herald Sun - a Melbourne newspaper that regularly publishes flattering puff pieces about how brilliant and 'dignified' Nadia is.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Nadia has anything to do with the gushing praise, and it's understood the public commentary about her is beyond her control. 

'Why hasn't The Herald Sun updated us on the whereabouts of the brave Nadia Bartel yet!? one Twitter user Tweeted in jest, while another added: 'It's been at least 3 days since the Herald Sun have mentioned her.'

The 'stunning and brave' joke derives from an episode of South Park in which everybody in the town agrees that Caitlyn Jenner is 'stunning and brave' because they're afraid they will be labelled transphobic otherwise.

The phrase has since become a popular meme used when someone is being conspicuously over the top in their praise for another person - with the implication being the praise isn't deserved.

While footy fans spent Sunday night roasting Nadia on Twitter, the mother-of-two was busy on Instagram documenting her expensive home-delivered seafood dinner, which consisted of oysters, lobster and Champagne.

'Yumm! Ordered this from @stokehouserestaurants. It's been hard for so many industries in Melbourne, our restaurants hit hard, I love you can order packs like this to support,' she wrote. 

Nadia and Jimmy Bartel announced their separation on August 15 last year, but they are believed to have actually split two months prior.

They share custody of two children, sons Aston, four, and Henley, one.

The Brownlow Medal winner, 36, is now dating office worker Lauren Mand. 

Nadia has yet to publicly acknowledge her romance with Nathan.
