Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague hit back at trolls who posted horrible comments about her after she was pictured in a bikini.
The awful comments went viral on Twitter after a fan brought attention to the ‘vile’ remarks which were made about the 21-year-old’s natural body.
A fan shared screenshots of the cruel things that were said, which were allegedly written on a tabloid's comment section, and included horrible comments about going on a ‘diet’ and described the star as ‘lardy’.
The tweet, which was then shared by Molly-Mae herself, read: “These comments are so vile. “Awful” and “lardy” is apparently how to describe a normal womans body?? [sic].”
I would genuinely love to know who writes these comments? Like how can you actually write shit like that and sleep at night? Beyond me https://t.co/8uD45in9LX— Molly-Mae (@mollymaehague) July 16, 2020
Molly-Mae was quick to shut down the horrible comments, writing: "I would genuinely love to know who writes these comments? Like how can you actually write s**t like that and sleep at night? Beyond me.”
Thousands of fans then rushed to the reality star’s defence, branding the trolls ‘nasty bullies’.
One person tweeted: "People that say things like this are the one’s that don’t feel right in themselves that they like to make people feel down Horrible nasty bullies! There’s Nothing wrong with your body! Xx [sic].”
Fellow Islander, Amber Gill, also slammed the awful remarks in a series of tweets.
Replying to Molly-Mae, she penned: "They're actually f**king weirdos man like who in their right mind would even go to the comment section to say ANYTHING you have a lush body and tbh I'd love to see what they look like [sic].”
She then went on to add: “Are these people DUMB she's a 21 year old girl its unhealthy to have the mindset these people do like its actually sick why hasn't 2020 taken them out yet [sic].”
Love Island fans were outraged by the trolls’ comments and continued to stick by Molly-Mae in a number of tweets, uplifting the star, with one tweet reading: "She looks like a lovely, normal, non-airbrushed, photoshopped girl. Just beautiful and as perfect as anyone else. You rock honey and don't believe anyone who says otherwise! [sic]."
