I can't speak for the hospitality industry in Australia generally, but I know in the place I worked in we joked about it, but didn't do it. Even when it was a loathed politician, we joked but wouldn't dare.

Same for food that was returned to the kitchen. There'd be chef hissy fits, and waiting staff "what a fuckwit!" if someone had done something particularly dumbshit, like ordering a blue steak and then being surprised it was incredibly rare, but we sent it back out in good condition. And no attitude (or at least, if they'd been unreasonable and rude, as little attitude as we could)
