Whilst watching the last episode of the ITV2 dating show, the rugby player posted a video where he poked fun at his fellow Islander during her sentimental speech dedicated to boyfriend Andrew Le Page.
Jacques chose to leave the villa two weeks before the series came to a close, citing that he needed to focus on his mental health and "get back to me".
As Jacques watched Tasha's declaration of love to Andrew, he filmed himself appearing to mock the model, laughing along before he shouted at the television: "You are a liar, an actress, get the f**k out."
The former player for the Castleford Tigers was referencing the famous line from earlier on in the season from Davide Sanclimenti, but the comments left a sour taste in viewers' mouths.
He posted the clip to his private Instagram Story, however, the clip has been circulating online and seen by many, sparking backlash in the process.
Tasha's dad, Tarek Ghouri, caught wind of the video and soon hit back at the mockery with a tweet condemning the ex-Islander's actions.
The now-deleted post read: "Some people grow and mature from their Island experience, some don’t. It is what it is."
This isn't the first time that the supportive father has come to Tasha's defence, last month he spoke out on Instagram after his daughter became the target of vile comments on social media.
Tarek posted on the dancer's personal Instagram whilst she was still in the villa: "We talked about the possible negativity and if you think you are prepared for it you are not. Negativity is not what we do in this family so it is a bit of a shock but more so is the ablest comments like last night when someone described her as a ‘deaf w***e’."
The Love Island finale saw the final four couples pledge their love for one another in a tear-eyed episode that ultimately saw Ekin-Su and Davide take home the crown with a landslide of votes!
